ENGIE has announced that it will invest €100 million up to 2020 to establish more CNG and LNG filling stations in Europe. 30 CNG stations will be constructed in France, and almost 70 LNG stations will be built in various European countries.
Currently, there are 3000 CNG stations in Europe overall, whilst there are just 75 LNG stations in Europe.
This investment comes as part of ENGIE’s promotion of LNG as fuel. For instance, the company has designed a bunkering vessel, which will begin operations in Zeebrugge, Belgium, by the end of 2016. ENGIE also states that it is supplying LNG by truck to waterway barges on the Rhine river, and that it will construct an LNG station for both trucks and vessels in the port of Antwerp, Belgium.
