Gov’t releases planned ownership structure of new private-public EV charging stations company

More details on the EV charging station company PPP: The private sector partners in the soon-to-be-established company for EV charging stations will hold a 55% stake (including a 25% stake for the operating and managing firm), Masrawy quoted Public Enterprises Minister Hisham Tawfik as saying. The remaining 45% will be owned by the ministry. Each stakeholder will put up a corresponding portion of the venture’s initial EGP 150 mn capital, with another EGP 300 mn to be raised from local banks. The company will set up 3k charging stations within 18 months in Cairo, Alexandria, Giza, Sharm El Sheikh and several highways.

Reminder: Companies looking to operate and manage the company have until this Thursday, 17 March to submit their bids, with the ministry set to announce the qualified bids the following Thursday, 24 March. The private sector partner selected to manage and operate the company will be locked in with a medium-term contract for its services in exchange for a portion of the company’s net income.
