SINGAPORE (Reuters) - TotalEnergies SE said on Wednesday it has agreed to buy Singapore's largest electric vehicle charging network from fellow French firm Bollore Group.

Known as 'Blue Charge', the network consists of more than 1,500 charge points installed in the city-state and represents about 85% of the charge points operating in Singapore.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Singapore is aiming to phase out all internal combustion engine vehicles by 2040, encouraging drivers to switch to electric vehicles through a range of measures. It aims to put in place 60,000 charging points by 2030.

The energy giant is also developing EV charging infrastructure in other cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, London and Brussels.
