Global technology powerhouse Siemens has partnered with Oman’s leading business house OTE Group in order to deliver its industry-leading electric vehicle (EV) chargers to help accelerate the Sultanate’s adoption of EVs and its transition to a sustainable future.

The company said that the agreement will capitalize on technology developed by Siemens that will accelerate the adoption of EVs by speeding up charging times and creating smarter as well as more efficient power grids.

“By leveraging OTE Group’s nationwide footprint, characterized by the presence of networks of automotive showrooms, workshops, and parts outlets, Siemens can deliver EV charging infrastructure to customers around Oman,” as per the statement.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Sudhir M, CEO of OTE Group, said that, “Siemens has a capable, resourceful, and dependable partner in OTE Group. Together, we can help our customers – government, public sector, or private – to achieve sustainable goals by incorporating EV charging solutions across the Sultanate.”

“This partnership with OTE Group, a reputable Omani business conglomerate, will enable Siemens to broaden its footprint in Oman and contribute to the digitalization and sustainable development of the Sultanate’s economy. The EV space is still in its infancy in Oman, but with our efficient and sustainable chargers, Siemens can bring about transformational change in this space,” stated Mr. Franco Atassi, CEO of Siemens Smart Infrastructure in the Middle East.

Last month, Siemens signed an agreement with a leading international automaker to jointly develop smart EV charging infrastructure technologies for the Middle East. This includes creating packaged solutions for customers, and electrification of Last Mile delivery services in Middle East markets.
