Blue Dot, PTT Lao sign a contract to install EV charging stations nationwide

Blue Dot and PTT Lao signed on Jan 9, 2023 an MoU on installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at gas stations of the PTT Lao company across the country.

Signatories to the document were Director of Blue Dot Latsasiphon Phimphachan and Director of PTT Lao Thira Viravong.

The MoU aims to promote the use of electric vehicles in the Lao PDR, especially those traveling from neighbouring countries to ensure there are enough charging facilities for foreign visitors under the concept “H2H – Connect Your Home to Your Holiday” so that they can travel with their EVs to tourist attractions in Laos.

European-certified charging stations (EV Station Pluz | BlueDot ) capable of 182KW-202kW, the fastest charging model, will be installed at PTT Lao gas stations. Each station will be equipped with four DC chargers (two for 160KW and two for 180 KW), and two AC chargers (22 kW).

According to the agreement, 10 EV charging stations will be installed at 10 gas stations of PTT Lao including three in Vientiane (Donkoi, KM 21 and Nongteng), and one each in Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, Kasi, Pakxan, Thakhek, Savannakhet and Pakse.
