July 29, 2020. Endesa moves ahead with the development of its network of natural gas vehicles (NGV) filling stations in France with 4 new NGV and BioGNV sites that will open to the public in the next 12 months in Dax, Marolles-sur-Seine, Melun and Saint-Denis.
The opening of these locations is part of Endesa’s NGV development plan in France and Europe, which aims to provide solutions for access to NGV and BioGNV through a network of public and private stations. Endesa’s goal is to reach 40 (Bio)NGV stations in France by 2024.
These public filling stations will serve all types of vehicles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and users will be able to choose between CNG and BioCNG at the desired mix.
The Saint-Vincent de Paul station near Dax, scheduled to open at the end of 2020, will spread over 2,000 m2 and will have 12 private slow lanes intended to be used by the RRTL (Régie Régionale de Transport des Landes), and 2 public fast lanes. The RRTL has committed itself to 100% BioGNV supply.
The Marolles-sur-Seine station, scheduled to open in March 2021, covers 4130 m2 and is located at the entrance to the A5. It will have 3 refueling tracks and 2 double dispensers. It is located within a logistics zone in strong development, and transport companies such as PREJAM have already agreed to refuel at the site.
The station of Vaux-le Pénil near Melun, scheduled to open in June 2021, extends over 3,000 m2 and will have 3 filling tracks. The station will be equipped with 2 double dispensers and one single dispenser. This site will be developed in partnership with the SEM SDESM ENERGIES (Seine et Marne Energy Syndicate).
The Saint-Denis station, scheduled to open in June 2021, is located on the N1 national highway, a major strategic axis in the Paris region. It covers 475 m2 and will have 2 refueling tracks. It will be equipped with a double dispenser and two single dispensers. This site will only accept vehicles up to 10 m length, making it one of the first urban public filling stations designed to accommodate light-duty vehicles, light commercial vehicles and small heavy-duty vehicles. Saint Denis will have the particularity to provide a minimum percentage of biomethane every refueling.
