Estonia’s largest CNG station with 48 refueling units was opened in the eastern city of Tartu. It is operated by Estonian energy company AS Alexela and will service the new natural gas bus fleet of Go Bus, the city’s transport company.
This is the fifth filling station in the country where energy company AS Alexela offers CNG for cars. “Our aim is to start selling only domestic biomethane, i.e. green gas in the filling station,” Chairman of the Alexela Management Board Aivo Adamson said.
The refueling facility is located on the area of the old Tartu Bus Company. There will be 42 units for slow refueling for buses, and three units for cars in the section of the station open for the public. “This is the first ever filling station with such capacity and capability in this part of the world,” Adamson added.
All 64 new buses serving the urban network will be refueling at the new station. The section open for the public can be used by the transport companies of the Tartu region and private individuals.
