KMG Rompetrol – new e-mobility projects of 2.2 million euros with European funds

15 February 2024

KMG Rompetrol Development submitted, in November 2022, an application for financing a project on the purchase and installation of ultra-fast charging stations for electric vehicles. They will be located in Rompetrol fuel distribution stations located in existing integrated service centers on the A1 highway, an important section of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). The estimated total value of the project is approximately 2.2 million euros, of which approximately 900 thousand euro will be granted by the European Union. The project period is 36 months, running from November 10, 2022 to November 9, 2025.

“As a company focused on sustainable development, we recognize the major role of charging stations for electric vehicles in our decarbonization effort. Networking the charging service for electric vehicles is an important step in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. We are pleased to announce the successful launch of our first project co-financed by the European Union. This key milestone marks a significant step in our commitment to innovation and sustainable development,” said Alua Amirova, Strategy and Sustainable Development Director KMG International (Rompetrol).

The project “Development of the infrastructure of alternative fuels by Rompetrol on the A1 highway at the border of RO-HU” is co-financed by the European Union through the Mechanism for the Interconnection of Europe (CEF-Transport), it being approved on March 15, 2023 by the European Executive Agency for Climate, Infrastructure and Environment.

The aim of the project is to install 11 300 kW charging stations (each station with two 150 kW charging points) and upgrade the grid connection for 11 locations with a power of 600 kVa each at the CNAIR1 locations.

“Charging stations for electric vehicles facilitate the transition to less polluting mobility solutions and contribute, at the same time, to the awareness process, by citizens and the community, of the effects that the choice of vehicle type can have on the environment. Through the investment we are going to make with the financial support of the European Union, in the infrastructure of charging stations for electric vehicles, we will contribute to a greener future, promoting innovation and economic growth at the same time. This project will also have a positive impact on cross-border transport and support the transition to low-emission mobility. Our objective is to become a supplier of integrated solutions necessary for road transport, in accordance with the evolution of market trends and the expectations of our customers,” said Laurentiu Colțănel, Group Director of Network Planning and Development within KMG International (Rompetrol).
