Shell has signed a global framework agreement with Taiwanese charge point manufacturer Phihong Technology. The manufacturer will supply Shell with chargers ranging from 30 kW to 360 kW in several markets in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America.
Under the global framework agreement, executed in December 2021, Phihong will provide a wide range of products, including 30kW, 60kW, 90kW, 120kW, 150kW, 180kW, and 360kW charging devices. It will also offer AC solutions in some markets.
The Phihong-Shell collaboration aims to deliver customer-specific turn-key solutions to meet the needs of Shell’s global green energy expansion. Phihong will support Shell in several global markets as a key supplier, including Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and North America.
Shell launched the first Phihong-powered Shell Recharge service station, sporting 120kW charging devices, in Hong Kong in late December 2021. While the deployment was based on the framework agreement that was signed at the time, the agreement has only now been made public. The two companies have not yet revealed details on the number of units or the financial scope of the framework agreement.
The Phihong agreement was apparently negotiated around the same time as another framework agreement – with Tritium – which secured the supply of DC charging columns. The agreement with the Australian company was concluded last year and announced in December. Both agreements concern markets in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America.
Phihong, a Taiwanese company with over 50 years of experience in design and manufacturing, develops power solutions and EV charging products. On top of the charging solutions mentioned above, Phihong offers a broad range of EV charging solutions, including a mobile wallbox with up to 16A output current, AC wallboxes and charging columns ranging from 7.7 to 22 kW with Type 1 and Type 2 connections.
