Wolf­tank Group signs MOU with Kuwait Petro­le­um Italia

Wolf­tank Group streng­t­hens its acti­vi­ties in the field of LNG and hydrogen.

Wolf­tank Group, a leading expert in envi­ron­men­tal tech­no­lo­gy and full-service pro­vi­der for filling sta­ti­ons, plans to expand its active role in the imple­men­ta­ti­on of climate-friend­ly (rene­wa­ble) natural gas and hydro­gen solu­ti­ons. In the near future, the Group will initia­te nego­tia­ti­ons with Kuwait Petro­le­um Italia S.p.A., which manages the Euro­pean busi­ness out of Italy with more than 3,000 service sta­ti­ons under the brand “Q8”. Kuwait Petro­le­um Italia plans to invest in rene­wa­ble energy carrier such as lique­fied natural gas (LNG) and hydro­gen — in each case pri­ma­ri­ly for com­mer­cial vehi­cles and ships — with immedia­te effect.

In this context, the Group’s Italian sub­si­dia­ry, Wolf­tank DGM S.r.l., and Kuwait Petro­le­um Italia have signed a Memo­ran­dum of Under­stan­ding. The common objec­ti­ve is to explore the oppor­tu­ni­ty to enter into spe­ci­fic project con­tracts for the con­struc­tion of LNG and hydro­gen refu­e­ling faci­li­ties, under which Kuwait Petro­le­um Italia would be able to rely on the long-stan­ding exper­ti­se of the Wolf­tank Group. As part of these nego­tia­ti­ons, the two groups will explore the pos­si­bi­li­ty of using or setting up a joint venture company. As a first step, the Wolf­tank Group will the­re­fo­re eva­lua­te the pos­si­bi­li­ties of a pro­por­tio­na­te finan­cing for this poten­ti­al joint venture.

“I am excited about this poten­ti­al coope­ra­ti­on with Kuwait Petro­le­um, which repres­ents a step towards a greener future. We are con­vin­ced that hydro­gen and methane from rene­wa­ble sources will play an incre­a­singly important role as climate-neutral energy car­ri­ers. Our group has built up many years of exper­ti­se in this area throughout Europe and world­wi­de and can actively support the expan­si­on of the Euro­pean filling station infra­st­ruc­tu­re towards sus­tainab­le refu­e­ling,” says Peter Werth, CEO of the Wolf­tank Group.

With the intro­duc­tion of (bio)LNG and hydro­gen as green and rene­wa­ble energy car­ri­ers, the decar­bo­niz­a­ti­on of trans­port is direct­ly achie­ved. The market for LNG and hydro­gen refu­e­ling sta­ti­ons in Europe should the­re­fo­re con­ti­nue to grow stron­gly, with the asso­cia­ted need for pro­duc­tion and logistics infra­st­ruc­tu­re. Key com­pe­ten­ci­es for this remain the storage of fuels at cryo­ge­nic tem­pe­ra­tures and high pres­su­res, and the manage­ment of process soft­ware for com­pres­si­on, tem­pe­ra­tu­re control and dis­pen­sers. It is espe­cial­ly in these areas that the Wolf­tank Group has key competencies.
