Construction of a new LPG station successfully completed

The station was built on the basis of a long-term investment plan, where the company’s management decided to build it due to high operating costs of current forklift fleet, improving the working environment of our colleagues and also placed big emphasis on the environment. The majority of currently used forklifts using the diesel engine and does not fully meet modern ecological standards.

Following the completion of the construction of the LPG station, the fleet of handling equipment will be gradually renewed and the old not fully ecological diesel forklifts will be replaced by new machines with ecological technology, ie LPG drive. As the construction and operation of the LPG station is subject to strict regulations in terms of fire safety, it was necessary to choose a suitable location for such equipment within the TES. In the end, a part of the car park behind the machining shop, was evaluated as a suitable place. This location meets all safety criteria and, last but not least, the requirements for the logistics side in terms of service ability.

The completion phase is currently underway (testing of the station) and the necessary permits for the operation and handling of the equipment are being processed. In the following days all employees who will have access to the gas station will be trained.

At the same time, we are already negotiating about the LPG-powered forklifts in an order to make the newly built LPG station effective and thus contribute to improving the living and working conditions of all our employees.

We believe that the LPG station will be beneficial for all of us, so let’s wish it many successful years of operation.
