David Kalife, CEO at Oman Oil Marketing Company, said, “With electric vehicles increasing in popularity throughout the region, Oman Oil Marketing Company is also rapidly changing to ensure that we prepare for the needs of today’s eco-friendly drivers.”

“By deploying electric charging stations, we are not only diversifying our offerings, but we are also implementing progressive green technologies in order to better cater for our customer diverse needs, by going beyond the usual offered products and services at our stations,” Kalife added.

As charging technology for electric vehicles (EVs) gradually takes reins from the internal combustion engine as the king of the road in the rapidly evolving energy landscape, oil and gas companies are acknowledging the rise of EVs, observes leading data and analytics company GlobalData.

Able to charge two vehicles simultaneously, the EV charging station has a total charge capacity of 44KW, with 22KW from each socket allowing for electric vehicles to completely charge in less than an hour. While electric cars are still a minority within the Sultanate’s market, Oman Oil Marketing Company’s eco-friendly charging station is part of a driving force increasing the company’s standing as a one-stop shop, meeting all of its customers’ requirements.

This initiative is in line with Oman’s national strategy to adapt and reduce CO2 emissions. As the Sultanate participates in a worldwide effort to prevent the negative effects of climate change and with an increasing wave of interest among electrical vehicles in Oman, the company is pioneering a new normal amongst its offerings to ensure that customers’ needs are satisfied by adapting its products and services.
