Alexela opens LNG fuelling station in Estonia
Published by Will Owen,
Alexela has opened a fuelling station offering the world’s broadest selection of fuels in Jüri, on the outskirts of Estonia’s capital Tallinn. It is also the first public LNG filling station in the Baltic States.
“It is really the first such energy department store in the whole wide world where in addition to petrol, diesel and electricity, one can also buy LPG, CNG and LNG for gas-powered cars,” said Marti Hääl, member of the Alexela Group Management Board.
Speaking at the opening of the Jüri filling station, Henrik Hololei, Director-General for Mobility and Transport at the European Commission said that there was no one future solution for all sectors and to move on, different fuels and sector-based solutions were needed: “For example, in the near term, there is not a single real alternative to LNG for heavy goods vehicles and in maritime transport,” Hololei explained. He was happy to note that Estonian companies were leading the way, not lagging behind in this respect.
“Clearly, the private sector is leading this process, because infrastructure is also needed for a real change to happen. Of equal importance, though, is a favourable regulative environment, conducive to such future solutions,” Hololei added.
