Bengaluru to get first CNG station soon

Vehicle owners in the city wanting to shift to a cleaner fuel will be able to make the switch to Compressed Natural Gas as GAIL Gas will be inaugurating the city’s first CNG station in the coming weeks.

The CNG Station, to be open at Premnagar in Laggere near Sumanahalli, will have the capacity to fuel 50 vehicles in an hour and can handle light vehicles such as cars and auto-rickshaws.

There will also be two mobile cascades with a capacity of 4500 WL each for domestic household consumers.

However, for vehicle owners to begin using CNG, there will have to be retrofitting of kits which will need approval from the State government.

“We will have to authorise centres for retrofitting. This proposal will have to be placed before the government ,” said H.G. Kumar, Additional Commissioner for Transport, who will visit the station on Thursday to inspect it before the launch.

According to GAIL Gas officials, the station will also be able to cater to the filling of gas kits which can then be transported across the city.
