Pan-European electric vehicle charging network Allego Holding B.V. has entered into a strategic agreement with Tamoil Italia to develop 11 ultra-fast and fast charging sites at some of the downstream oil and gas energy provider’s existing locations throughout Italy, the companies said in a statement today.
Last July, Allego announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to merge with Spartan Acquisition Corp. III (NYSE: SPAQ) and become publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
“We are very pleased to enter the Italian market to support the development of high-powered charging sites in Italy, a country with a long history of automotive innovation,” Allego CEO Mathieu Bonnet said in the statement. “We look forward to our collaboration with Tamoil and to helping bring sustainable transportation to this region as Europe’s demand for charging infrastructure continues to grow with increasing numbers of electric vehicles on the road.”
The 10 ultra-fast stations and a single fast station will be developed at sites across northern Italy, including three in Milan, on a 25-year lease contract.
“The collaboration with Allego is consistent with our commitment to constantly improve services for customers, offering charging solutions for e-mobility,” Tamoil Italia Sales & Marketing Manager Silvia Gadda said in the statement. “We are excited to partner with one of the leading fast-charging networks in Europe to ensure that our EV customers receive topline service whenever they seek to charge their vehicles.”
