The agreement is effective until December 2014 and will involve R$10 million to fund the conversions. It will also contribute to increase the network of CNG stations in Paraná. “The idea is to stimulate the consumption of compressed natural gas and promote a new energy alternative,” said Governor Richa.
Moreover, the CEO of Compagas, Luciano Pizzatto, stated that the company plans to expand the supply of the gaseous fuel throughout the state in collaboration with unions and fuel suppliers. “The price of CNG equipment and this credit with low interest rates enable drivers to adapt their vehicles with the most cutting-edge NGV technology,” he added.
It is worth mentioning that the agreement is part of the Program of Incentives for the Use of CNG, launched by Compagas, and is aligned with the state industrial policy that aims to diversify and expand the Paraná’s energy grid.
