The Gazprom Group company Vemex s.r.o, together with LUKOIL Czech Republic and Gascontrol s.r.o, continues to develop joint projects in setting up public gas fueling stations on compressed natural gas (CNG), with the opening of another CNG fueling station on 2nd September at the LUKOIL’s station base in the town of Králův Dvůr, on the D5 highway that connects Prague through Pilsen with the German border.
The gas fueling equipment includes the Swiss-made GREENFIELD DM type oil-free compressor, with output capacity of 85 cu m per hour. With pressure of up to 300 bar, the fueling equipment can serve up to 10 vehicles in one hour. The CNG price is at 26,00 Kč/kg (about 1 Euro/kg). The self-storage fueling unit is opened 24/7.
It is already the fourth gas fueling project on the base of LUKOIL petrol station, put into life with the cooperation of Vemex, Gascontrol and LUKOIL. The joint work relies upon the Memorandum of Cooperation signed 20th May 2011, targeting the expansion of gas fueling network in the Czech Republic. Three other stations already operate in Ostrava, Opava and Olomouc.
CNG is an eco-friendly fuel with minimal impact on the environment. By developing its fueling network, Vemex follows its strategy of active support of natural gas as an alternative to the traditional fuels and as eco-fuel of the future.
There are now more than 50 CNG stations in the Czech republic.
