23/05/2022 12:27 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, May 23 (Bernama) -- Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia) has entered into a partnership with KVC Industrial Supplies Sdn Bhd (KVC) to meet the country’s increasing demands for electric vehicles (EV) by supplying chargers for EV charging facilities. 

In a statement, Huawei Malaysia said the partnership with KVC will see the company taking on the role as the main purchaser and fulfilment partner that will undertake the procurement and deployment of the EV chargers while Huawei Malaysia will be the technology provider in addition to administrating product training for KVC.

Both have inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the cooperation on the sidelines of the Huawei Asia Pacific Digital Innovation Congress 2022 held in Singapore, Friday.

KVC was represented by its country managing director, Eddie Wong Kok Leong while Huawei Malaysia by its vice-president (digital power), Chong Chern Peng. 

Eddie Wong said the MoU would provide the opportunity for both KVC and Huawei to leverage and integrate their technology to promote low carbon mobility.

“KVC has sold and deployed more than 150 charge points nationwide in residential, commercial and industrial areas and we strive to deliver more to echo our values of being ‘Committed to People and the Planet’,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chong said Huawei aims to build a partnered ecosystem to enhance the quality of local infrastructure with the company’s arsenal of products and solutions from Digital Power moving towards the paradigm shift of carbon neutrality.

“In the roadmaps of the automotive industry, the EV is regarded as the future of the automotive industry. Due to the surge in demand for EVs in the Malaysian market, the need to enable more EV charging has become a necessity, and is a critical element in boosting the confidence of the consumer segment to transition to EV,” he said.

Chong added that Huawei is always open to collaborate with partners to build a holistic ecosystem to enhance the EV charging network in Malaysia, with the ultimate goal of supporting the government and private EV manufacturers, as well as partners to improve the charging experience of EV users.

Huawei reportedly committed to building a high voltage super charging platform that gives electric vehicles 10 minutes of charging and 200 kilometres of driving.
