Four New Ones This Year, 15 Planned by the End of 2014
Berlin-based Gazprom Germania said Wednesday that it is adding compressed natural gas fueling stations at Berlin, Potsdam, Leipzig, and Öhringen this year, joining six already in operation in Germany.
“We’re continuing to invest in expanding our network,” Gazprom Germania senior managing director Vyacheslav Krupenkov said in a release, citing environmental, cost and safety advantages.
“Gazprom Germania is making an important contribution to the development of green transport in Germany,” he said.
A total of 15 filling stations is planned to be in operation by the end of 2014.
The 180-employee unit of Russia’s Gazprom Germania says it has again commissioned Erdgas Mobil for CNG construction. “Erdgas Mobil was responsible for realizing the four natural gas filling stations constructed in 2012,” Gazprom Germania said.
Beyond Germany, the company said it will open another seven natural gas filling stations in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in collaboration with its subsidiary Vemex.
Gazprom Germania, established in 1990, is one of some 40 subsidiaries of Russia’s Gazprom, said to be the world’s largest natural gas producer, Gazprom. Gazprom Germania has approximately 1,000 employees, with 180 in Berlin.
