OrangeGas has acquired 75 Bio-CNG stations from EWE, a player that has been shaping CNG mobility in Germany for decades and that is now exiting the market. With the new additions, OrangeGas becomes the market leader in Germany with a total of 129 stations.

Due to the favourable tax regime for transport until 2023, OrangeGas sees a lot of potential for CNG and LNG trucks in Germany.

The stations will be taken over from EWE in Oldenburg and are mainly located in northern Germany and in the vicinity of Berlin. The total number of filling stations of OrangeGas will thus exceed 200 in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and Belgium. As a result of the acquisition, the turnover of OrangeGas will increase by 15% in total.

"The acquisition of the EWE filling stations is a very important step for OrangeGas. After all, it is our goal to become the largest supplier of clean fuels in North-Western Europe", says founder and CEO Marcel Borger of OrangeGas.

In addition to Green Gas, in the coming period OrangeGas will look at which filling stations can also offer other clean fuels such as EV, HVO100, LNG and hydrogen.

With the acquisition of 75 Bio-CNG stations from EWE, OrangeGas will own about one fifth of the almost 850 CNG filling stations currently operating in Germany. Around the turn of the year 2020/21 the network in Germany will be expanded to more than 200 Bio-CNG filling stations. The focus is on the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg, Thuringia and Brandenburg. With the exception of Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Württemberg, OrangeGas is currently active in all Länder.

The Dutch company OrangeGas BV was founded in 2008 and is market leader in the Netherlands with 83 Bio-CNG filling stations. This summer OrangeGas will enter the Swedish market - the goal is to offer Bio-CNG at 20 to 30 own CNG filling stations by the end of 2020.
