TotalEnergies and Wenea forge major electric mobility partnership in Spain

TAGS

TotalEnergies and Wenea have announced an agreement aimed at building a leading player in electric mobility in Spain. This partnership includes developing a network of high-power charging hubs, a move that is set to revolutionize the electric vehicle (EV) charging landscape in the country.

The first major step in this collaboration is TotalEnergies’ acquisition of Nordian CPO, a subsidiary of the Wenea group. This deal includes 200 charging sites from Wenea’s branded network, all supplied entirely with renewable electricity. Strategically located along major highways and in urban and peri-urban areas across all 17 regions of Spain, these sites are pivotal in the expansion of EV infrastructure.

Furthermore, TotalEnergies and Wenea are in discussions to establish a strategic partnership that combines their expertise in infrastructure, power distribution, and mobility. This collaboration aims to build and invest jointly in high-power charging hubs, significantly enhancing the EV charging infrastructure in Spain.
