Dutch alternative fuels supplier OrangeGas has set its long-term goals of becoming a major European player in the fuel market with the acquisition of 13 compressed natural gas (CNG) filling stations in Germany.
The deal will allow OrangeGas to operate in North-Rhine Westphalia with an opportunity to establish a presence into other German states at a later stage in the future.
According to a report published by Gibgas, a German consulting company for CNG and biomethane driving, discussed the prospects OrangeGas has for the German CNG market.
“We have every confidence that we will be able to grow to 100-150 CNG filling stations in Germany over the next 2-3 years,” said Wijtze Bakker, the new Managing Director Germany. He has specified that 30-50 stations are already in the pipeline.
OrangeGas operates automatic filling stations across the Netherlands and Benelux, where it offers green gas, a combination of natural gas and renewable biomethane harvested from sewage treatment, organic waste and landfill gas. Gibgas has identified that Belgium, Sweden and the United Kingdom are also on the OrangeGas agenda. Additionally, the company is not only focused on compressed natural gas but is also determined to introduce hydrogen fuel.
