ION and Sharjah Municipality to develop electric vehicle infrastructure

2/26/2020

ION has signed a partnership agreement with Sharjah City Municipality (SCM), and Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) to create electric vehicle charging stations throughout the emirate. ION will build the network across the Emirate in several phases.

HE Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee’ah and Chairman of ION, said: “We are transforming the way people use transportation in the Middle East region, by introducing services and solutions that allow for smart and sustainable mobility.

As more government companies embrace sustainability, the bigger picture is to eventually create a smart transportation grid and deal with congestion that Sharjah faces. ION is a joint venture between Bee’ah and CE-Creates. Bee'ah, which manages the cleanliness and waste management of the city has placed an order for 50 Tesla Semi electric trucks to its fleet as it aims to become the first zero waste city in the Middle East.

HE Thabit Salim Al-Turaifi, Director-General at Sharjah City Municipality added, “As Sharjah positions itself to be more eco-friendly and technologically advanced, this agreement will be of vast importance to the success of green mobility in the city."

"We are delighted to offer residents the ability and convenience to pursue greener modes of transport and look forward to working with ION and SCM to ensure the right infrastructure is in place to support electric vehicle users.” commented HE Dr. Rashid Alleem, the Chairman of Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority on the announcement.
