ATEKE, in collaboration with the Consortium of J&P Avax SA and Aktor SA, implemented the construction of the first mixed petrol/natural gas station and compressed natural gas (CNG) in Greece, located on the 128 Georgikis Sholis, av. (near the airport) property of EKO company, which, as a member of the Greek Petroleum Group, developed, in cooperation with DEPA, the natural gas transportation project using compressed natural gas (CNG), under the trade name FISIKON.
Then, our company, again in collaboration with the Consortium of J&P Avax SA and Aktor SA, implemented the construction of the second and third petrol/natural gas station and compressed natural gas (CNG) in Kifissia and Nea Ionia respectively, property also of EKO company.
Stimulating the development of natural gas transportation in Greece included the creation of a network of refueling stations in cooperation with Greek Petroleum Group. Under FISIKON, the company will proceed with the installation of compressed natural gas fueling pumps (CNG) at filling stations in major cities of the national axis Athens-Thessaloniki, Larissa and Volos.
As part of the initial and ongoing training of staff and partners, ATEKE organized the first conference on “Natural Gas Transportation” in July 2014 in which all Management and engineers of the technical services of major fuel marketing companies attended (EKO – BP – AVIN – CORAL -CYCLON) as well as representatives of the Ministry of Transport and, of course, qualified employees of DEPA.
Developed by Alexopoulos Athanassios, President and CEO of ATEKE the need for “Supporting the development of natural gas mobility in Greece.”
Then Mr. Christos Karamoulas, Consultant in Energy and Security issues analyzed in detail the “Properties, Characteristics of Natural CNG Gas, LNG gas”. He particularly pointed out the advantages of both gas and liquefied natural gas-LNG, and the prospects that emerge in the transport sector by making a comparison between the economical numbers of fuel.
Finally Mr. Peter Panou, mechanical engineer and partner of DEPA, addressed in depth the technical parts of the CNG station and documented the importance of compressed natural gas use (CNG), compared to other fuels.
