ORLEN GAZ and the web portal e-petrol.pl announce the first Polish LPG Awards.
The competition is called „Napęd Nowej Ery”, which means „Fuel of the New Era”. The name of the Awards refers to the exceptional qualities of LPG, which are still somewhat little-known in Poland.
The launch of the competition took place 7-9 March during the GasShow 2012 Exhibition and Conference and the LPG - Exceptional Energy International LPG conference in Warsaw, Poland. These two events gathered thousands of visitors, who had the opportunity to discover about this new idea of promoting LPG in Poland.
The main goal of the Awards is the popularization of the best LPG industry practices. The Organizers of the competition want to break the stereotype of LPG, as a cheap and poor quality fuel. They hope that such an exciting initiative will stimulate innovations in the Polish LPG market. The competition can also be seen as a promotion of companies, who invest in the development of the Polish LPG market. That is why in October during the grand final the Organizers will announce winners in four categories:
Throughout eight months - from March till October 2012 - all contestants will compete to gain prestige and recognition for their products. Among them LPG car manufacturers, filling stations, dispenser producers and many others. The jury of the Awards, appointed by the Organizers, will consist of the finest LPG experts in Poland. In each category five companies will be given nominations for the award, and from these five the Jury will name one winner who will receive the title (Car of the New Era, Innovation of the New Era, LPG installation of the New Era, LPG station of the New Era) and an invitation to the 26th WLPGA Forum in London.
- We need to stimulate the LPG industry. - says Marek Balawejder, the CEO of ORLEN GAZ. - We believe, that these Awards will contribute to improving the standards of the industry and will help to break the stereotype of LPG as a cheap fuel for used cars. Through this competition we want to prove that it is important to promote good practices and award those, who believe that it is possible to combine ecology with quality, economy and dynamics.
- Liquefied gas, being a multi-purpose ecological source of energy, needs to be promoted on a large scale. We need to show the other side of LPG, which is quality, ecology and new applications. I deeply hope that these Awards and the competitive spirit will be an impulse for the LPG industry leading the way to further development - adds Andrzej Olechowski, Director of the Polish LPG Association (POGP).
The partners of the competition „ORLEN GAZ LPG AWARDS – Napęd Nowej Ery” are WLPGA, POGP (Polish LPG Association), PIPP (Polish Chamber of Liquid Fuels), PIMOT (Polish Automotive Industry Institute) and gazeo.pl.
