The Action was a study with a pilot deployment of 10 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations (13 refueling points) in the Greek part of the Orient/East-Mediterranean Corridor.
The study identified factors supporting and hindering the development of natural gas as a fuel for vehicles in Greece, and was an essential first step towards the mass deployment of CNG for natural gas vehicles across Greece over the next 10 years as planned in the Global Project.
The CNG stations network were deployed around important nodes in existing petrol stations, to simultaneously cover the potential demand from long-distance and urban transport. The network combined existing conventional infrastructure with highly innovative CNG refuelling technology.
A business plan was prepared to roll-out the CNG network in Greece, taking also into consideration the available CNG infrastructures in Italy and Bulgaria.
