First LNG refueling station in Hungary opens in Budapest

The first LNG refuelling station in Hungary opened last Monday around the southwest edge of Budapest.

Thanks to the new facility, Hungary joins the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T), prolonging one corridor by 550 kilometers, and another by 420 km. Hungarian haulage companies can now use environment-friendly vehicles running on LNG, with a range of up to 1,500 km

Truck drivers going through Hungary powered by LNG will now be able to fuel up. The station was built as part of the PAN-LNG project, which was selected as a supported project of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), a key EU funding instrument to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness through targeted infrastructure investment.

The station offers premium-quality LCNG fuel for vehicles running on gas (CNG or LNG), while climate-neutral BioLNG is also in the selection.

Within the framework of the PAN-LNG project, work has also begun on a domestic LNG-producing plant, which will provide an even better supply for the station, the press release adds.

The total costs of the project amount to EUR 1.2 million, 85% of which came from EU resources.
