Over recent months two new compressed natural gas (CNG) refuelling stations have opened in Slovakia, reports Poland’s CNG.auto.pl. The stations are located in the southern cities of Komarno and Nove Mesto nad Váhom, providing self-service refuelling 24 hours a day all year round. Operated by the country’s major natural gas supplier SPP, refuelling requires an SPP access card which operates across all company refuelling sites.
The CNG filling station in Komarno has a capacity of 160 m3/hr and CNG filling stations in Nove Mesto nad Vahom has a capacity of 350 m3/hr. The Komarno station was the first in Slovakia to be located at a service station, under agreement between SPP and fuel refiner and supplier SLOVNAFT. SLOVNAFT operates 209 filling stations across the country and sees the potential for adding more CNG facilities.
