The plan for construction of 18 self-operating fuel stations nationwide is completed.

In late August, the last of the planned self-operating fuel stations for railway operators will be opened. PKP Energetyka S.A. has been opening the chain of 18 fuel stations for last 3 years, all around Poland.

Through the own chain of fuel stations, PKP Energetyka S.A. sells liquid fuels to railway operators across the nation. During first 7 months of 2013, PKP Energetyka sold 19,200 m3 of fuel. The volume of sales is in the order of ca. 17,000 barrels per month.  For comparison, last year 188,000 barrels were sold, the equivalent of 15,000 barrels per month.

PKP Energetyka S.A., the second in Europe after Germany-based DB Energy, allows railway operators to refuel their vehicles at self-operating stations. Railway fuel stations are barely different from general access fuel stations. However, the capacity of fuel dispensers is much higher. A single dispenser has a capacity of 220 litres per minute, reducing locomotive refuelling time to approx. 10 minutes, and is open 24/7.

The stations being currently built by PKP Energetyka S.A. are self-operating. Starting the dispenser will require logging into the system by means of dedicated, contactless fleet cards. Until now, the company has provided more than 700 such cards to railway operators.

The fuel stations have been opened in a few provincial capitals – Warsaw, Lublin, Wrocław, Poznań, Białystok, Szczecin, as well as in many smaller towns, such as Czerwieńsk and Kamieniec Ząbkowicki.

PKP Energetyka S.A. was granted a licence for trade in liquid fuels at railway fuel stations by the Energy Regulatory Office on 28 April 2010; the licence is valid till 31 December 2030.
