Shell Singapore has launched Shell Recharge at the Sengkang station, a first for Singapore and Southeast Asia. EV (Electric Vehicle) owners and drivers can now stop by to recharge using the 50kW rapid DC chargers that provide 80% charge from zero in approximately 30 minutes and is priced at SGD $0.55 per kWh (prices subject to change based on electricity tariffs, govt taxes, local market conditions and operating costs).
There will be 10 Recharge locations by October 2019 – Newton Hooper, Alexandra Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Paya Lebar PIE, Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay, Havelock and Bukit Batok West which represents close to 20% of Shell’s retail network in Singapore.
To start using the chargers, users need to download the Greenlots app, register for a Driver account and top up the app via credit card. Shell Recharge is powered by Greenlots’ EV charging network management software. The company is a member of the Shell Group and has a network of more than 100 public and private charging stations island-wide in 50 locations. For a limited time, customers can also opt to vacuum clean their car while it is being charged.
On top of private EV car owners, Singapore’s growing fleet sector also stands to benefit as they now have access to reliable rapid chargers at easy-to-access locations. With Shell Recharge, fleet companies can embark on the transition to electric vehicles in a simple and cost-effective manner, reducing their emissions in the process. Through the Shell Fleet Card, fleet customers also have an integrated solution, with the ability to pay for charging, fuel and other expenses – all with one card, one supplier and on one invoice. Shell City Solutions is also helping fleet owners on system level changes needed to enable this transition.

Shell aims to make more of such low-carbon energy solutions available in Singapore in the months and years to come,” said Aw Kah Peng, country chairman of Shell Companies in Singapore.
