As a sponsor of the event, Shell Oman has solidified its commitment to creating In-Country-Value (ICV) in the energy transition journey by signing Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with the Ministry of Transport, Communications, and Information Technology (MTCIT), as well as two Omani Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). These MoUs underscore Shell Oman’s dedication to supporting local SMEs as well actively contributing to the decarbonation and net-zero emissions target in line with Oman 2040 vision whilst advancing the energy transition and expanding the electric vehicle (EV) network throughout Oman. 

Dr. Mohammed Al Balushi, CEO of Shell Oman, said, “Shell Oman is leveraging its global expertise to play a lead role in the Sultanate’s progress towards a greener mobility future. Electric mobility is on the way to mass adoption which is unlocking new opportunities to Shell to offer commercially viable solutions to EV drivers. This requires a joint approach via strong collaboration with government and other stakeholders within a well-articulated framework and coherent structure of governance to support the long-term EV transition roadmaps across the whole EV ecosystem.  We are glad to be partnering with MTCIT to develop a robust network development strategy for EV charging. Moreover, by capitaling on such strategic partnerships, we continue to focus on our ICV agenda to empower Omani SMEs and nurture their growth through knowledge transfer to strongly position them competitively in the local market.”

Under the first MoU, Shell Oman joins forces with Amlaak Energy LLC, for the supply and installation of EV chargers for Shell Oman. The second MoU between Shell Oman and HTC (Hussam Technology Company) to develop a fully integrated charging point operator (CPOs) capabilities for the first time in Oman. Through this agreement, the SME will assume responsibilities such as software and application development, customer service, technical and non-technical maintenance, payment gateways, and facilities management for the EV charging infrastructure. Additionally, HTC will collaborate with Shell Oman provide consultancy services Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Management (EPCM) services for various energy transition related projects by Shell Oman, including solar. 
By investing in the development of EV charging infrastructure and supporting local SMEs, Shell Oman is driving the growth of renewable energy and promoting a greener mobility future for the Sultanate through its Powering Progress strategy which is aligned with the countrys’ orderly transition towards net zero emissions by 2050.
