EP Manufacturing Berhad is working with TNB subsidiary Tenaga Switchgear Sdn. Bhd to roll out Battery Swapping Stations and related infrastructure across ASEAN, including Malaysia.
The group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the utility giant to explore the possibilities of localising the production of Batteries and Battery Swapping Stations regionally. Both parties will also explore the possibilities of unifying the Battery Swapping Stations and infrastructure networks in the target markets. In addition, the MoU seeks to explore the possibilities of deploying Battery Swapping Stations via Tenaga Switchgear’s network in the region.
EPMB acting Chief Executive Officer Ms. Lim Sim Yee said: “The Group is working to commercially roll out its two-wheeler EV business in Malaysia and expand further into other ASEAN countries. For this to take place without interruption, we need a well-built Battery Swapping Station infrastructure in the markets we are eyeing to penetrate.
Therefore, EP Blueshark is excited to forge a collaboration with Tenaga Switchgear (TSG) in jointly developing the necessary infrastructure across Southeast Asia.
EPMB is collaborating with an international technology company namely, Sharkgulf Technologies Group Limited, to manufacture, assemble and distribute battery-powered two-wheeled EVs in Malaysia and the larger ASEAN region.
Tenaga Switchgear (TSG), which was incorporated in 1994, is involved in the manufacturing of Medium and High Voltage Switchgears in Southeast Asia for electrical transmission and is venturing into Energy Transition products which include AC and DC EV Chargers, and Battery Swapping infrastructure.
