Volt, the EV charging company under Singapore-based Keppel’s infrastructure division, announced plans to establish Southeast Asia’s largest public fast-charging hub in Singapore. Located at Jalan Papan in Jurong, Singapore’s first industrial estate, the hub aims to house up to 80 DC charging points, potentially making it a milestone in the region’s electric vehicle infrastructure.

“We expect this to be the largest deployment of public ultra-fast chargers at a single site in Southeast Asia,” said Lim Yong Wei, Executive Director of Volt. The project, operated by Volt for up to 15 years, will commence with the installation of five 360 kW DC chargers in its initial phase, capable of charging up to 30 electric buses.

Volt’s strategic move aligns with Singapore’s ambitious environmental targets outlined in the Singapore Green Plan 2030. The initiative aims to deploy 60,000 EV charging points and transition half of the public bus fleet to electric models by the end of the decade.

“We are excited to partner with Setsco on this groundbreaking project,” Lim Yong Wei added, emphasizing the hub’s role in supporting Singapore’s eco-friendly transportation goals. Setsco Services, a subsidiary of VICOM, will provide essential electrical infrastructure for the hub, while Keppel plans to optimize operations through AI and machine learning at its Operations Nerve Centre in Changi Business Park.

While Volt has not disclosed a comprehensive timeline for the hub’s completion, the company anticipates enabling rapid charging times of electric cars, aiming for a 10-minute charge at the 360 kW points.
