OrangeGas, with the acquisition of 12 CNG stations from Mabagas Kraftstoff, has increased its network in the country.
With 11 of the 12 stations on OIL! locations, OrangeGas and OIL! will continue to collaborate in the future.
Due to the limited number of CNG stations, Mabagas found it impossible to work effectively and thus, decided to sell off the CNG stations to OrangeGas. With the ambition to grow as quickly as possible to 150 CNG stations in Germany and become the market leader, OrangeGas, operates a large network of CNG stations in the Netherlands and Germany. With a total of 860 fuel stations, CNG is seen as a solution to achieve the environmental objectives in clean mobility in Germany.
Green gas / CNG is being focused by both the government and major manufacturers such as Volkswagen. In the probable future SEAT wants to make all models available from the factory on CNG and become the largest CNG car manufacturer.
Robert Kurtze, managing director OIL! Tankstelle said: "In addition to this acquisition, we see great potential in the future cooperation with OrangeGas. With OrangeGas we have found an independent party specializing in the sale of clean fuels in Germany with the ambition to become the largest in North-West Europe.
"This is an important step in our ambition to become market leader in Germany," said Marcel Borger, director and founder of OrangeGas. "We are very pleased with this acquisition and with OIL! have found a partner to further expand the network in the future." PWKD28062018
