Connecting Europe Facility is a European Commission program to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness by funding innovative projects in energy, transport and telecommunications.
One important objective is to develop sustainable and efficient European transport infrastructure with emphasis on durability and safety.
Drive Systems is the coordinator of the project 'Pilot Deployment of a smart (bio) LNG-CNG network in Flanders. Investigating an Innovative Mobile CNG Pipeline concept'. This proposal was selected by INEA for funding.
Within the project we will build an LNG / CNG mother station Flanders, and a CNG daughter station. The concept of 'Mobile Pipeline' will be studied and evaluated with attention to the ecological and economic advantages and disadvantages.
This grant enables CNG Connect able to set up the pilot project and to prepare for the continued rollout of the concept.
