DEPA, the Public Gas Corporation, will soon acquire thirteen new CNG stations at ten existing liquid fuel facilities following approval of the project’s induction into an EU funding mechanism, the CEF (Connection Europe Facility).
The Greek finance ministry yesterday announced the inclusion, into the CEF, of a Greek “Study on a pilot CNG fueling station network across the Greek part of the Orient East Mediterranean Road Corridor”.
The ten exisiting liquid fuel units, where the CNG systems will be developed, are located in Larissa, Thebes, Alexandroupoli, Igoumenitsa, Patras, Kozani, Kiato, Ioannina, Xanthi and Serres.
DEPA had submitted an application for this project as a collaborative effort with One Team, Optilog and Lever.
The project’s budget is valued at 9.1 million euros, half of which will be covered by the CEF funding mechanism.
The CEF funds projects in the fields of transportation, energy and telecommunications.
