World’s leading mobility retailer and an arm of Royal Dutch Shell plc, Shell Retail has chosen AECOM, an American multinational engineering firm, to deliver ultrafast electrical vehicle (EV) 150kW fast chargers across the Netherlands.

The move aimed at allowing more people to charge their vehicles on the go. These 200 fast chargers will be installed under the brand name Shell Recharge, and will be available on Shell forecourts.

As per the deal, AECOM will provide engineering, procurement, construction management, design and consultancy services to help Shell in installing these fastest electric vehicle chargers in the Netherlands.

Moreover, these new fast chargers are three times faster than the current 50kW installed chargers, and will charge vehicles within 15 minutes.

Commenting on the development, AECOM, Netherlands Country Manager, Bruno Haerens said, “Having worked with Shell in the Netherlands on a number of projects, AECOM’s experts and specialists will continue to work closely with the team to better support the needs of their customers by ensuring e-mobility is more accessible for motorists across Netherlands. This is an important step Shell is taking to achieve a lower carbon transport system for communities across the country and we are delighted to be part of it.”

“Electric mobility is one of the solutions that will help meet growing demand for transport in a lower-carbon world. A suitable network of recharging infrastructure needs to be developed as the number of electric vehicles increases, to ensure that customers can charge their vehicles without disrupting. Shell aims to be market leader in this segment. AECOM supports Shell in quickly establishing a fast charge network on service stations, whilst Shell’s subsidiary NewMotion provides chargers at home and at work,” said Hilmar van den Dool, General Manager Shell Retail for Benelux and France.
