Ahmed Nagy, General Manager of iCheck company for maintaining and converting cars to clean energy, said that the company aims to launch a technical training academy specialized in clean energy.
This came during a press conference held Sunday to launch a partnership between iCheck, Careem Egypt, and Cargas to launch an initiative to convert cars that operate through Careem to clean energy.
Nagy said that the company succeeded in converting 1,000 cars to run on clean energy in Sharm El-Sheikh as part of Egypt’s preparations to host the Sharm El-Sheikh COP27 conference last October.
The company has also succeeded in converting 4,000 cars to run on natural gas in cooperation with Cargas, and more than 10,000 companies through partnership with Careem.
Mohamed Shebl, Director of Operations at Careem Egypt, said that the car’s gasoline affects approximately 30% of the captain’s daily income, and therefore the use of natural gas will reduce the cost of the fuel item for the captain by more than 50%, which contributes to raising the captain’s income significantly.
He added that the agreement with Cargas includes facilitating the payment of the value of converting cars to run on gas instead of petrol at Hamm and a half, which reduces cost pressures on captains.
