HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 20 May 2022 - Shell Hong Kong Limited (“Shell”), Sino Group (“Sino”) and , Halo Energy Limited (“Halo”), an innovation and technology company in Hong Kong, are expanding the coverage of the electric vehicle (“EV”) charging stations to encourage green transport and promote sustainable development in the region. Together, they have established the fastest universal EV charging station – Shell Recharge station in China Hong Kong City (“CHKC”). Compatible with different EV brands to cater to the increasing demands of users, Shell, Sino and Halo are working together to lead the industry and reduce carbon emissions in a proactive manner. 

As EVs become ubiquitous, expansion and upgrading of charging facilities is of paramount importance in fostering the long-term development of existing properties. Following the opening of the first ever Shell Recharge EV charging station in Fanling, the second Shell Recharge charging station was established in Sino Group’s property CHKC, and put into operation in early May providing 4 rapid direct current (DC) chargers for all EV brands in Hong Kong. Complementing Halo’s patent distribution system, one of the chargers operates at a speed of 300kW meaning that an EV can be fully charged within 15[1] minutes making it the fastest of its kind in Hong Kong. Together with Halo’s 40 semi-quick charging stations, CHKC now holds the most EV charging stations within Tsim Sha Tsui, enabling convenience for EV drivers and enhancing charging experience. 

Shell is staying true to its mission actualising sustainability initiatives to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050. Shell’s brand-new facility at its Airport (Cargo Terminal) Station will commence operations in Q2 2022. The latest initiative marks Hong Kong’s first service station with both EV charging and conventional fuel facilities. Shell will become the first gasoline company in Hong Kong to offer a comprehensive EV charging network. - Press release
