Rompetrol opened two new service centers on A1 highway
Rompetrol Downstream – the retail division of KMG International Group in Romania recently opened two new service centers with Rompetrol gas stations on A1 highway (Orăștie – Sibiu section) in the vicinity of Cristian, Sibiu County.
“We successfully conclude a new stage of the development of our presence, by opening the last integrated centers out of 12 units undertaken by the concession contract with CNAIR. We implemented a new concept of Rompetrol gas stations in order to answer our customers’ expectations to provide new services on A1 highway, one of the most traveled roads in the country.”, stated Laurențiu Colțănel, Network, Planning& Development Group Director.
These two centers are the last units of the package of 12 integrated centers built by Rompetrol on the A1 highway and completed in 2023 near Pecica, Orăștie, Recaș, Girmata, Sagu. The overall investment for all 12 centers amounts above 40 million USD, provided by the Kazakh Romanian Energy Investment Fun.
The construction and amenities works for these new service centers were completed in December of last year, and afterwards checks and tests of the equipment were carried out, as well as obtaining the necessary and legal approvals for commissioning.
Having about 100 employees, each station is equipped with 3 multi-product pumps for cars, 1 fast diesel pump for large vehicles, an AdBlue pump, a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) supply skid and 2 stations of fast and high-power electric charging, each with 4 charging stations.
“The next step is the opening of 6 new service centers (3 lots) with Rompetrol gas stations in Romania, respectively on the A3 highway (near Sanpaul – Mures) and the bypass options for the cities of Suceava and Brasov. These are already in progress, in various phases from design to obtaining the formal authorizations from the local authorities.” stated Laurențiu Colțănel, Network, Planning& Development Group Director.
