Description: New CNG station in Horní Počernice
For the CNG, from the beginning of February, drivers can also come to the new filling station in the P3 area of Prague Horní Počernice, which is already the eleventh Pražská plynárenská station.
The station was established in the logistics complex due to the cooperation of Pražská plynárenská with the company Rohlík.cz, which uses CNG-powered vehicles for its distribution. The station has an output of more than 5,000 kg per day and, with its four dispensing points, is sufficiently dimensioned to clarify Rohlík’s fleet, which now numbers approximately 600 vehicles and other customers based in and outside the P3 Park complex. At this station, customers fill low-emission bioCNG, which saves 420 tons of CO2 per year compared to conventional natural gas.
Highest year-on-year increase
“Despite the pandemic situation, last year we managed to increase CNG and bioCNG sales at our filling stations by 25% compared to 2020, which is the highest year-on-year increase of all CNG retailers in the Czech Republic. BioCNG accounted for more than a quarter of this. This year we expect an even higher increase, in addition to our eleven filling stations, we are also a supplier of natural gas for dozens of other CNG stations in the Czech Republic, “said Martin Pacovský, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Pražská plynárenská.
During the year, the number of vehicles powered by natural gas on Czech roads is almost 3,000, and it is so that interest in this is constantly growing.
In addition to Rohlík, Pražská plynárenská has long been cooperating in this area with the Prague Services, whose municipal waste collection vehicles run on bioCNG. Together we contribute to improving the air quality in Prague.
