The EV Chargers are compatible with all internationally accepted standards and the company’s research and development division works round-the-clock to develop a best-in-class product line.

The firm has already catapulted its capabilities to facilitate well laid out electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the country.

Anshul Gupta, Director, Okaya Power Private Ltd. said, “we are delighted to be awarded with the contract of installation and commission of over 55 Multi-Standard EV chargers (100KW) as per CCS2/CHAdeMO Protocol, and 15 KW DC fast chargers as per DC-001 in Shillong.
