Yinson GreenTech (YGT) has recently signed a partnership with a Bruneian charge point operator (CPO), BEV Charging Company (BEV). The new deal enables Malaysian EV owners to utilise BEV-operated EV chargers with ease through the YGT’s ChargEV app.
Only one charging spot is connected for now
According to the app, there is only one EV charging spot in Brunei that has already been integrated into the ChargEV network. Located at The Mall in Gadong, it was deployed last November by BEV in collaboration with the distributor of BYD in Brunei, Maju Motors.
In fact, it is the first BYD Electric Charger spot in Brunei. However, it is open to all EV owners regardless of their EV brands.
This particular spot features two 22kW Autel AC chargers which you can utilise for free at the moment. You have to bring your charging cable to use them though.
Nevertheless, you can try borrowing the cable from the nearby BYD showroom if you forgot to bring one, according to a tip that was left on its PlugShare listing. ChargEV app also said that these chargers can be activated using a physical ChargEV card.
More charging points to be deployed in Brunei soon
While there is only one charging point available through the ChargEV app at the moment, the joint announcement by YGT and BEV has hinted that there will be more to come in the coming months. However, the exact rollout plan was not revealed through the announcement.
Aside from Brunei, YGT also provides Malaysian EV owners access to charges in Singapore such as those under the CDG Engie and LHN Energy. Together with the domestic roaming partnership that it has with Gentari, JomCharge, and DC Handal, the company claimed that users can access more than 1,000 EV chargers across all three countries via the ChargEV app.
