Furthermore, after switching 1,000 vehicles to CNG in cooperation with the Egyptian Social Fund for Development, Gas Tec has signed the 2nd phase of the agreement to convert an additional 1,000 units through modest loans with easy payment terms. This program aims to encourage citizens to use natural gas to power their vehicles and thus cut the controversial fuel subsidy causing the considerable deficit.
Due to the pioneering role of the Egyptian NGV experience in Africa, Cairo met a high-level delegation from the Algerian Ministry of Energy and Mining seeking to learn about Egypt’s green initiatives. The group visited several CNG stations, conversion and cylinders testing centers and other facilities in the city to review the operational systems and the relevant safety measures.
