Snam and sustainable mobility: Snam4Mobility
Snam plans to promote the growth of Italy's natural gas for transport distribution network.
Snam4Mobility, which is 100% controlled by Snam, seeks to promote the growth of Italy’s natural gas for transport distribution network, both investing directly in the network and supporting other operators willing to invest autonomously.
The objective is to facilitate the development of refuelling infrastructure and create a more balanced distribution across the Italian regions, whilst improving the quality of the service provided to users.
Snam4Mobility's mission is to support the growth of sustainable mobility, also thanks to the development of technologies and know-how for innovation, information and awareness of the territory and communication and constant relationships with local institutions and realities.
Compared to traditional fuels, natural gas cuts down particulate emissions and significantly reduces carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides, also allowing significant savings when filling the tank.
Gas mobility is a sector in which Italy is the absolute leader in Europe, with the most widespread infrastructure network in the entire continent and the largest number of gas cars and distributors that supply it. The sector has a total of 6 thousand workshops and, between direct and indirect armature, employs over 50 thousand workers. To date, there are more than 1,400 refueling stations for compressed gas for cars and more than 70 for liquefied gas for trucks in the country, made with private investments and rapidly expanding.
Snam4Mobility will build 150 new natural gas refueling stations (compressed and liquefied) to make this "smart and green" fuel increasingly available to cars, buses, trucks and potentially also ships and trains.
Bio-mobility is already a reality: infrastructure as well as cars are already fully compatible with biomethane. Today in Europe 17% of CNG distributors already supply biomethane, it is expected that in 2022 around 40% of the gas destined for mobility in Italy will be bio. The Snam4Mobility model allows operators in the sector to rely on a reliable and expert partner to choose natural gas supply solutions.
The Snam4Mobility offer is flexible and can concern:
- construction of new filling stations;
- take over the filling station projects;
- upgrading of existing filling stations;
- revamping of existing stations (more powerful compressors, new dispensers, restyling of the canopy etc.);
- acquisitions of existing CNG / LNG plants.
