Fortum Charge & Drive and Genesta Property Nordic have signed a framework agreement to develop and operate their electric vehicle charging infrastructure

Genesta Property Nordic, a leading real estate management company in the Nordics, has chosen Fortum Charge & Drive to develop, install and operate their future electric vehicle charging infrastructure. By choosing Charge & Drive, the leading system for charging operations, Genesta will increase the value of their property by meeting the tenants expectations of a user friendly solution for electric vehicles (EV:s). 

"We look forward to support Genesta to take a lead in being a sustainable real estate company. We have a well-developed Nordic charging network for EVs that Genesta tenants can utilize for longer journeys. We are looking forward to a good partnership based on a turn-key solution", says Tobias Henmark, Sales & Marketing Director, Fortum Charge & Drive.

Smart charging solutions are already becoming a part of the service solutions tenants expect on the commercial property market. Through the agreement Genesta is able to offer a cost effective charging infrastructure for their tenants without having to project, install or operate it by themselves. 

”The Nordic countries are at the forefront of sustainability and sustainable development and we are pleased to be a part of it. Increasing accessibility for our commuting tenants is a key driver behind our initiative to install chargers for electric cars at our properties. We hope to promote sustainable commuting and we encourage both tenants and visitors to use the charger stations. This initiative is one of many ways we are actively working with our tenants to increase environmental awareness and decrease our properties’ environmental footprint”, David Neil, CEO, Genesta Property Nordic.

Fortum Charge & Drive have already done different site surveys for Genesta in Finland; at a shopping center and in an office building.
