New concept filling station in Netherland

  Under the slogan ‘Smart and clean fueling,’ the innovative solution features a strong Kärcher vacuum cleaner built into the CNG-unit,which allows now fill up twice as clean at OrangeGas. While filling up, the driver can vacuum the car at the same time. OrangeGas builds 100% biogas-filling stations in the Netherlands.

  Marcel Borger, managing director of OrangeGas and inventor of the idea said: “One day while I was filling up with biogas(CNG compressor based station), I looked into my car and thought it could use a good clean-up. I didn’t have the time to go to the vacuum self-serve coin-operated machines. I thought it would be great if you could clean your car and fill up at the same time, without the fuss of coins. Especially for people who spent a lot of time in their car,like cab-drivers, this will contribute to our ‘Happy Planet’-philosophy: filling up at OrangeGas makes you happy!”

  All OrangeGas-filling stations are equipped with a smart Start/Stop system. Drivers can fill up by pressing the Start button, without holding it down.This means they have the time to do something else, like cleaning the car in the meantime. As long as the unit is running, they can start the vacuum-cleaner and it will stop automatically once you’ve finished filling up. The hose can be stretched out so (small) buses or bigger vehicles can also use the vacuum cleaner.

  The concept was presented at Taxi Expo, but will eventually be spread out over all OrangeGas-stations.
