Total buys German EV charging-point business

November 30/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Total SE has acquired Charging Solutions, a German business that operates electric-vehicle charging infrastructure, report market Watch with reference to the French energy company's statement.

The acquisition of the Munich-based business from Viessmann Group provides Total with a network of 2000 charge points in the country. The points are installed at the sites of private businesses, with some accessible to the public, Total said.

The company provided no financial details of the deal, but said that the integration of Charging Solutions into its German affiliate Total Deutschland was effective as of Nov. 1.

Alexis Vovk, Total's president for marketing and services, said the company's ambition was to operate 150,000 charge points in Europe by 2025.

As MRC wrote earlier, within the framework of its net zero strategy, Total will convert its Grandpuits refinery (Seine-et-Marne) into a zero-crude platform and will invest more then EUR500 mln into this project. By 2024 the platform will focus on four new industrial activities: production of renewable diesel primarily intended for the aviation industry, production of bioplastics, plastics recycling and operation of two photovoltaic solar power plants.

We remind that in November 2019, Total disclosed that itis evaluating construction of a new gas cracker at its Deasan, South Korea, joint venture (JV) with Hanwha Chemical.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,594,510 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 1% year on year. Only high denstiy polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 880,130 tonnes in the nine months of 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports, exluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply increased exclusively of PP random copolymer.

The company's petrochemical products cover two main groups: base chemicals and the consumer polymers (polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene) that are derived from them.
