PitPoint continues to expand its German network of compressed natural gas (CNG) stations. In the first quarter of this year, the international provider of clean fuels has added three new locations and now offers CNG at close to 40 service stations in Germany. “Due to their convenient locations, the new CNG stations are a good addition to our existing portfolio and contribute to our ongoing strategic expansion in Germany,” said Malte Hock, Head of Sales at PitPoint Germany.
The dispensers are sited at strategic locations on Total stations at: Ilmenau (Grenzhammer 4) in the Erfurt catchment area, close to the A4 and A71 motorways, where PitPoint operates two further CNG stations; Dreieich (Darmstädter Straße 92) a dispenser for H-gas, close to Frankfurt and its surrounding highway network; and Luckenwalde (Salzufler Allee 40) 50 kilometers south of Berlin, close to Luckenwalde city centre and one of its business parks.
PitPoint, which works closely with fleet managers on the supply of alternative, cleaner fuels through its existing network as well as on new-build projects, has already established a broad network of CNG filling stations across the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France. Recently, it opened the first CNG station in Brussels. This initiative was made possible thanks to the support of the BENEFIC project which is part of the European program “Connecting Europe Facility,” financed by the European Commission.
The facility is located at the Lukoil service station at Boulevard du Triomphe 166, 1160 Auderghem. “The development of a dense CNG network is our top priority, and with the opening of the station in Auderghem we are taking another step in that direction. This will make it even easier to switch to CNG for both private and professional customers,” commented Country manager Geert Degroote.
