BlueFuel will focus primarily on servicing heavy vehicles, mainly at key points in the domestic market. Based on the plans and current conditions, it is estimated that BlueFuel will be able to start LNG refueling within the first quarter of 2022. It is particularly important that from the very first day of operation, BlueFuel refueling stations, in from the network of gas stations "elin", will offer their customers nationwide LNG coverage.
