As early as late 2018, Belorusneft expects to install 100 charging stations at its petrol stations and other accessible locations, reports Belarusian Telegraph Agency.

“The car charging stations will be placed close to shopping centers, business centers, cultural and sport facilities to make car charging convenient for clients,” said Andrei Kotik, Belorusneft Deputy Director General for Construction, General Affairs, and Ideology.

More than 40 of them will be deployed in the country’s capital of Minsk, and by 2019 main highways will be equipped with EV charging facilities.

“With an extensive network of conventional refuelling stations of our own, we can use the petrol stations to offer electric car charging as a new service,” explained Kotik.

The electric vehicle infrastructure initiative follows a presidential decree that promotes the use of electric cars in the country.
