Eni has opened Italy’s first LNG fuelling station for heavy duty vehicles.
The LNG fuelling station, which will be located in Piacenza, is the first in a series that Eni intends to open over the next four years along major Italian roads. LNG fuelling stations are part of the company’s commitment to promoting the use of environmentally friendly fuels through innovative, high-tech solutions.
A number of Iveco engine units (mono-fuel natural gas vehicles) are already designed to run on LNG to transport goods over long distances.
'LNG Blue Corridors'
Eni is an active participant in the European ‘LNG Blue Corridors’ project, which is focused on the construction of environmentally friendly fuelling stations along four major European trade routes, which cross the continent from north to south. The Piacenza LNG fuelling station represents the high standard Eni intends to meet in fulfilling its commitment to promoting LNG.
