Endesa will open its second public gas station for natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in Paris, specifically in Île-de-France, in the metropolitan area of the French capital, the energy company said in a statement.
The association of municipalities for the management of gas and electricity of Île-de-France (SIGEIF) and Endesa have signed the award of the design, construction and operation of this gas vehicle station, which will be located in the town of Wissous, south of Paris.
The opening of the Endesa station is scheduled for June 2019 and is part of the company’s growth strategy in France and Europe through natural gas for vehicles (NGV), a fuel that reduces by 95% the emission of particles and between 40% and 65% those of nitrogen oxide (NOx).
BioNGV, or methane gas from renewable sources, will also be dispensed at the station, which reduces CO2 emissions by 90%. The contract was awarded as part of the plan to tackle pollution in the city of Paris and its metropolitan area.
The new station of Endesa, of more than 4,000 square meters, will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and will have compressed natural gas (CNG) for fast refuelling.
