Turnkey bus fleet electrification

Transmilenio engaged VGMobility to replace part of their aging diesel bus fleet but had large challenges in terms of capex requirements, power availability and operational risk.

VGMobility is a sister company of VEV, both of which are wholly-owned by Vitol. To date, Vitol has committed over $2 billion to sustainable business initiatives and has a pipeline of projects under review.
