The role of Consorzio 906:
Project administration and technical support

The GAINN4MED project, which was approved by the European Commission as part of the CEF (Connecting Europe Facility) Transport Call 2016, coordinated by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport (MIT), aims to launch and test the industrial development phase of the national LNG network in the start-up period (2017-2020).

The action includes the pilot development, in a real-life context, of a network of six CNG/LNG fuel stations in Italy along the Mediterranean and Scan-Med corridors. They will be supported by ISO containers, together with a fleet of HGVs to allow for effective testing and launch of the network.


  • Development of CNG/LNG fuel stations across Italy
  • Implementation of innovative LNG supply chain solutions
  • Development of conditions appropriate for the formation and development of sustainable alternative fuel technology
  • Adoption of LNG as an alternative fuel
