European COrridors for natural GAs Transport Efficiency

ECO-GATE

European COrridors for natural GAs Transport Efficiency

Objectives: 

The overall objective of the Action is to study efficiency improvement of conventional and renewable Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV) market in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, North Sea - Mediterranean, Orient/East-Med, Rhine-Danube and Scandinavian-Mediterranean corridors through new technologies and innovative solutions for supply logistic services, cleaner fuels, refuelling infrastructure, vehicle and components manufacturers and operational processes.

The Action will deploy a network of 21 L-CNG refuelling stations, enhanced with innovative solutions for the natural gas market. It will also involve 2 infrastructures to supply bio-methane and hydrogen enriched compressed natural gas (HCNG) in order to test the novel mixtures of conventional natural gas and renewable fuels (Bio-methane and H2).

Several NGVs will be involved and monitored during the trial. This study will allow a quick deployment of LNG and CNG by significantly bringing unit cost down while improving the understanding of client’s needs. Once finished, the study should serve as a basis for a large-scale deployment of the cost reduced technology.
