The prospect of the development of the infrastructure of CNG stations in Saint-Petersburg taking into account the transit transport flows








The article presents the results of simulation of the infrastructure of compressed natural gas (CNG) stations in Saint-Petersburg on the basis of the interactive mathematical model taking into account the perspective development of the city as potentially the largest trade and transport center of international significance. Based on the analysis and trends of the increasing traffic flow of GMF vehicles, there were assessed their integral and differential characteristics in regard to the most important thoroughfares of the city. The results of the study allowed estimating the average daily and annual demand for GMF filling, as well as the required number and operation capabilities of the CNG stations at each entry to the ring motor road. The infrastructure of CNG stations in St. Petersburg presented in the article will allow to fully meet the demand of consumers for the refueling the cars with gas motor fuel.
