MADINAH , July 2, 2022

Saudi authorities have signed up Al Sharif Holding to set up charging platforms for electric cars at 12 major sites and axial roads in Madinah region. This comes as part of the kingdom's ambitious goals to cut carbon emissions under Vision 2030.
Madinah Municipality has signed an agreement with Al Sharif Holding Group to set up charging platforms for electric cars at 12 major sites and axial roads in the region as part of the project's first phase, reported SPA.
This comes as part of the municipality's plans to establish more such electric charging stations for the benefit of electric car owners and encourage more nationals to support its environmental sustainability programmes.
The contract was signed by Madinah Mayor Engineer Fahd bin Muhammad Al Balishi and Sharif X Company for Electric Vehicle Charging Solutions CEO Dr Ahmed Sindi.
These charging stations will provide fast and medium charging devices (AC-DC) through power supply sockets with a power ranging from (22-200) kilowatts, in a model that conforms to the approved specifications and standards, stated the report.
In addition to this, Sharif X will build distinctive models of freight pallets with a visual identity in line with the directions of the Municipality in improving the urban landscape at the level of Madinah, said the SPA report.
This project comes within the list of projects and investment opportunities that the municipality intends to offer to the private sector in light of the continuous endeavour to launch new activities in the local market, and to enable companies and businessmen to seize new opportunities that contribute to advancing the development and economic diversification system, it added.
