— Natural gas for transport
Our natural gas mobility projects
GAZPROM NGV EUROPE IS DEVELOPING THE MARKET FOR NATURAL GAS AS AN ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY FUEL FOR ROAD TRANSPORT AND SHIPPING.
There are around 100,000 natural gas vehicles currently registered in Germany, where they are playing a significant part in reducing harmful emissions in road transport. Natural gas vehicles produce much less CO2 and nitrogen oxide than conventional drive systems, and hardly any soot particulate. It is with this in mind that Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), and metalworkers union IG Metall signed a joint declaration committing to increasing natural gas’s share of the energy mix used to power Germany’s road transport tenfold by 2020.
GAZPROM Germania’s wholly-owned subsidiary Gazprom NGV Europe GmbH runs projects to enable the clean and efficient use of natural gas as a motor fuel. These efforts focus on developing an infrastructure capable of supplying ships, trucks, and passenger cars with compressed (CNG) and liquefied (LNG) natural gas.
Gazprom NGV Europe currently operates 50 natural gas filling stations in Germany and has already constructed a further ten filling stations in the Czech Republic and Poland.
We also see great potential for powering heavy-duty vehicles with natural gas. In 2014 and 2015, GAZPROM Germania and Polish bus manufacturer Solbus brought Europe’s first LNG buses to the Polish cities of Olsztyn and Warsaw.
The GAZPROM Group has also signed a memorandum of understanding with Rostock Port operator Hafen-Entwicklungsgesellschaft Rostock mbH on cooperating in the LNG market. This cooperation focuses on the development, marketing, and usage of LNG in road transport and shipping in the German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The company bunkered its first load of LNG onto a vessel at Rostock Port in early 2016, proving that Germany’s largest Baltic Sea port is ready for LNG bunkering operations. Further LNG projects are currently under development.
