Orlen Deutschland - a subsidiary of PKN Orlen - plans to build 434 fast chargers for electric cars (868 charging points) over the next three years, the company said. The value of the investment will be approx. EUR 100 million.

"The expansion of the e-mobility offer in our network is another significant step into the future. This is the largest project in the 20-year history of Orlen Deutschland and a great challenge," said Piotr Guział, member of the management board of Orlen Deutschland for development.

All charging points are to operate under the Orlen Charge brand, also present on the Polish market. As emphasized, new charging points will be built primarily at existing petrol stations, but new locations are also planned, only for chargers, as well as the installation of devices on the premises of external partners.

This is the first stage of the Orlen Deutschland electromobility initiative announced this year, which, in addition to expanding the network of chargers within three years, is also to include other solutions in the field of mobility.

As announced, in order to successfully implement this program, the company will employ up to 25 specialists in the field of electromobility.

The company also announces the expansion of the existing network of petrol stations, especially in the southern part of Germany, with points equipped with a full range of products and services, including car washes, shops, charging parks and automatic refueling machines.

Orlen Deutschland is a company of the PKN Orlen Group, which manages a network of nearly 600 stations in Germany, operating mainly under the star brand - Orlen Group. The first stores with the Orlen logo operate, among others in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich.

The PKN Orlen Group manages six refineries in Poland, the Czech Republic and Lithuania, and is also active in Poland and Canada. Its consolidated sales revenues reached PLN 131.5 billion in 2021.
