Engie SA said Thursday that it is partnering with Traton SE's Scania to provide electric charging for trucks and buses in Europe.

The French energy company said the four-year partnership would initially focus on 13 European countries, with other regions following suit at the end of 2021.

Engie will deliver and maintain electric-charging solutions and associated services for Scania clients, while Scania will offer field services and training programmes for its drivers.

Scania and Traton are owned by Volkswagen AG.
