WINGAS strengthens presence in Austria
Sales office opens in Vienna
"We want to be close to our customers and that is only possible if we are present on the spot. This enables us to actively meet customer wishes, jointly develop solutions and define development targets," says Hamead Ahrary, head of the Vienna office, in summarising the strategy for the Austrian market. "We want to continue growing - together with our customers."
The office opening has been modelled on the successfully founded subsidiaries in the UK (2003), Belgium (2007) and the Netherlands (2011). The WINGAS natural gas company, a joint venture between BASF subsidiary Wintershall and the world's largest natural gas producer Gazprom, sells natural gas to municipal utilities, regional gas suppliers, industrial customers and power plants. Through its subsidiary, astora, WINGAS can access natural gas storage facilities that make an important contribution to securing supplies in the region. These include the storage facility in Haidach, Austria, with a volume of more than 2.6 billion cubic metres, the largest natural gas storage facility in western Europe in Rehden, northern Germany, with a capacity of 4.2 billion cubic metres, and the Jemgum storage project on the German-Dutch border, which can store up to one billion cubic metres of natural gas. As a European player, WINGAS is now utilising the experience and expertise that it has garnered in other European countries to further develop its position in the Austrian market. We can offer the local energy market genuine added value and secure supplies of natural gas," says König. The company is one of the largest natural gas suppliers in Germany with a market share of around 20 percent. In 2011, WINGAS achieved a turnover of 300 billion kilowatthours. 45 percent of its gas is now sold in neighbouring European countries.
