Charge Zone to install 100+ EV charging stations at Marriott hotels in India



Charge Zone, an EV charging network provider, announced that it has partnered with Marriott International to install 100+ EV charging stations at Marriott hotels in India. Under the partnership, Charge Zone has deployed a fast DC 60kW/120kW charging station with dual charging guns at “The Westin Mumbai Powai Lake”.
The company will complete the installation of 100+ EV chargers by December 2022. Marriott International aims to build the EV charging infrastructure globally through this initiative.
Designed to charge electric four-wheelers, these charging stations will be open to the public and users of Marriott’s EV fleet. Charge Zone’s fast DC charging points with the CCS2 charging protocol offers 80% charge within 45-60 minutes and 100% charge in 90-120 minutes depending on the EV’s battery size. Also, these chargers have an additional facility of Type-2 AC chargers depending on the requirement.
The Charge Zone has installed 1450+ charging points across 650+ EV charging stations, serving around 5000 EVs daily. The company recently completed the installation of 20 app-driven EV charging points along the Gujarat- Maharashtra National highway.
Bhaskar Gurunath, Area Director of Engineering of Marriott South Asia, said, “Marriott continues to be a leader in offering guest experiences that exceed expectations and setting the standard for global sustainability targets within the hospitality sector. By partnering with Charge Zone, Marriott International is moving closer towards its goal of creating an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, in its hotels around the globe, that can be accessible by its patrons and the general public alike.”
“Our long-term partnership with Marriott underscores our commitment to building a network of convenient and accessible charging in large metro locations as well as Tier-1 cities and is a strong indicator of the rapid adoption of EVs across the country”, said Kartikey Hariyani, Founder & CEO of Charge Zone.
