Denisson Energy, company member of Antares Group, and NGVA Romania Association officially announce the start of works to build the first public CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) filling station, within the series of the 9 stations to be built within the CNG Romania Project.
The station will be built in Kika Militari area, near A1 Motorway, on Pitesti-Bucharest direction, 700m from the Hornbach Militari roundabout, with an easy access from both ways of the Capital Ring Road and A1 Motorway, as well as from the Bucharest entrance/exit direction.
The location of the station is in line with the project’s strategy to serve both transit on pan-European corridors and the adjacent urban agglomerations.
The station will be the first of the 9 of CNG Romania project planned to be built in Bucharest, Arad, Timisoara, Deva, Pitesti, Constanta, Craiova, Drobeta-Turnu Severin and Sibiu, estimating that they will be fully operational by the end of 2019.
- Compressed Natural Gas is the cleanest burning alternative fuels available. Natural gas vehicles (NGV) emit up to 30% less greenhouse gas than gasoline or diesel vehicles.
- Compressed Natural Gas is nontoxic and disperses quickly. It has a higher ignition temperature than gasoline and diesel fuel, which reduces the chances of accidental ignition.
- The use of Compressed Natural Gas fuel reduces costs significantly for vehicle owners. Natural gas averages 40-60% less than diesel or gasoline (depending upon local markets).
- Natural gas engines can reduce noise by as much as 50% compared to diesel engines. This ensures a longer life of the engine and save a lot of money.
About CNG Romania
The project carried out by Denisson Energy and Natural Gas for Vehicles Association – NGVA Romania within the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) aims at the implementation of the first network of CNG filling stations in Romania along pan-European corridors.
Worth EUR 5.2mln, the project benefits from co-financing of 85% from the European Union and aims, inter alia, at decarbonization and improvement of mobility in Europe, by building the first network of CNG stations in Romania, on the central axis the main TEN-T road transport corridors linking the Center and the Western European Union to the South West and the Black Sea, Constanta being the end point of the corridor.
