ENGIE AND IVECO INAUGURATE A NEW NATURAL GAS REFUELING STATION
the agreement signed in 2017 between ENGIE Italia, energy and services player
driven by the mission of leading the transition to CO2 zero emission, and
IVECO, launch today a brand new state-of-the-art gas refueling station.
on CNH industrial Headquarters, Strada delle Cascinette in the strategic East
part of Turin, at the crossroads of the transport network (highways, ring road,
etc.), developed on an area of over 5 thousand square meters and built
specifically for heavy vehicles, it consists of 2 LNG dispensers (Liquefied
Natural Gas) and 4 of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), as well as some charging
stations for electric vehicles powered by a photovoltaic system located on the
station will be open to all types of natural gas vehicles from 6 to 21, Monday
the project is a reality, realizing ENGIE’s commitment to contributing to the
development of green mobility, focusing on alternative fuels such as
electricity and natural gas, and also IVECO’s commitment in its role as leader
in the field of natural gas vehicles. The IVECO ORECCHIA dealership, the
reference IVECO dealer for the Province of Turin and Valle d’Aosta, near to the
station, will support customers in the transition towards green mobility with a
complete service (sale, assistance and, now, refueling).
enormous advantage of natural gas compared to diesel, GPL or heavy fuels is
represented by the reduction of 95% of fine particles (PM), 90% of nitrogen
dioxide (NO2) as well as a significant reduction of emissions of CO2.
alone accounts for 20% of global energy consumption, 24% of global CO2 emissions
and 95% dependence on oil. Sustainable mobility is therefore a fundamental
driver on the road to the zero-carbon transition.
goal is to implement solutions with a view to decarbonizing and this project is
an example of that. – said Matthieu Bonvoisin, director of the Infra Energy
Business line of ENGIE Italia – In Northern Italy, there is a very high level
of CO2 emissions. 50% of these emissions are produced by private heating, 25%
by industries and 25% by transport 1. The development of a network of LNG
refueling infrastructures allows to decrease the polluting effects for heavy
transport. In addition to reducing the environmental impact, this solution also
allows a reduction in noise pollution, as the vehicles powered by LNG show
greater silence than those powered by diesel. ENGIE has twenty years of
activity in over 160 service stations in Europe. This project expresses the
desire to strengthen our expertise in sustainable mobility in Italy”.
has pioneered natural gas technology in transport and been instrumental in the
development of the distribution network. Natural gas – added Fabrizio Buffa,
IVECO Gas Business Development Manager – is the mature solution immediately
available to decarbonize long haul, and this agreement with ENGIE for the
opening of new refuelling stations is part of our holistic approach to green
transport. We believe that it is crucial that all the players in the sector
work together in order to achieve truly sustainable transport in the timeframe
driven by regulations to address Climate Change”.
2017 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between ENGIE and IVECO aims to expand
the various joint projects: from France (in the IVECO headquarters in Trappes),
passing through the United Kingdom (in the port of Immingham), to Romania (for
a demonstrator at Alba Lulia). At the same time, work on Italian soil
continues: ENGIE is working on three other L-CNG station projects in northern
Italy, in addition to the installation of dozens of electric charging points
throughout the territory.
