Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. (IMI) took the lead installing the first integrated electric vehicle (EV) charging and transport system for the Ayala Group of companies, which is one of the largest and oldest conglomerates in the Philippines. The ceremonial installation took place at Ayala 30th Mall in the city of Pasig.
The installation was a first for the conglomerate, which supports its commitment to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. IMI brought the EV chargers of TGOOD LINCHR, which is one of the world’s largest EV charging infrastructure providers.
In a statement, IMI said its facility in China builds the electronics and assembles the power supply system in the EV chargers of TGOOD LINCHR. IMI considers the TGOOD LINCHR as a valued partner in the new energy market.
“We have been part of this ecosystem on a global basis. Now that we are contributing locally, we are all the more proud to be deeply involved this major disruption here in our country,” said Arthur R. Tan, Chief Executive Officer of IMI. “We hope to be a catalyst for technology that drives carbon neutrality,” Tan added.
The newly installed charging station is a collaboration between IMI, Ayala Land, TGOOD, GREENSTRUM and Global Electric Transport (GET).
