A chain of petrol stations in Spain and Portugal is being redesigned more sustainably, according to a London consultancy.
TwelveStars is redesigning Cepsa’s petrol stations after winning a six-way pitch a year ago due to its focus on sustainability, says TwelveStars chief executive, Nicolas de Santis.
The first prototype launched last week in Madrid and the design will be rolling out across all new stations being built in Europe.
TwelveStar’s brief was to minimise the building and layout sections as far as possible, ‘not just to look Green like BP’, says de Santis.
‘We have eliminated the amount of components used by 50 per cent by taking out columns where they are not needed, and combining fire extinguishers, glove compartments and paper towels into single units,’ he continues.
He adds that in terms of production costs the new designs save the client a fortune and increase the speed in which stations can be built.
Petroleum and petrochemical company Cepsa has a network of more than 2000 petrol stations in Spain and Portugal.
