PKN Orlen opens first German fuel station under own brand

Poland's PKN Orlen petroleum corporation has opened its first fuel station under the Orlen brand in Germany. In Germany Orlen already operates about 600 stations under the Orlen-Star brand.

According to the company, the move is an important step in its efforts to gain more leverage on European markets. The first Orlen station is located in Seeberg-Ost near Berlin. The site also offers a shop and ready-to-eat meals.

In a statement, Orlen said that in connection with the coronavirus epidemic the new station is subject to the same safety standards as its Polish counterparts.
