When one of South Africa’s leading CNG energy companys, NOVO Energy, were planning their new flagship refuelling site, they wanted world class technology to ensure a high standard of customer experience. They chose to use Compac for both Dispensers and Meter Posts, allowing for cars and larger vehicles to refuel with the most appropriate equipment. Choosing Compac also meant the equipment integrated easily into their forecourt control systems.
“The KEW CNG Refuelling Station will support the City of Johannesburg in its objective of enabling economic development, job creation and sustainability, which will put Gauteng at the forefront of the green economy.
The location of Kew CNG Refueling Station was strategically decided by NOVO Energy, the station is in close proximity to Sandton and the township of Alexandra. The aim is attract the public transport operators, fleet owners and private individuals to use CNG as an alternative source of fuel for their vehicles. The City of Johannesburg is committed to protecting the environment and has embarked on several sustainable initiatives within the city to promote cleaner air and reduced emission by their municipal fleets. The City of Johannesburg has recently acquired NGV in their municipal fleet and there are hundreds of NGVs operating within the city. The NOVO Kew Station will add to the required infrastructure needed to refuel these vehicles.
This project is the commercial flagship of NOVO Energy within Johannesburg. The station has been designed using state of the art compression equipment and includes the integration of modern process technology.” (source NOVO Energy Press Release 24 Jan 2017)
