Distribution of Neste Pro Diesel expands to Latvia

The premium-quality Neste Pro Diesel is now available from the most of the Neste stations in Latvia. Neste Pro Diesel supplements the range of high-quality Futura fuels launched previously in the Baltic region and Russia. Neste Pro Diesel is available in Finland, Lithuania and Latvia.

"The Baltic Sea region is Neste's home market and, therefore, very important to us. Our strategic target is to be the Baltic Sea champion, and the expanded distribution of Neste Pro Diesel to Latvia supports this objective well," says Panu Kopra, Vice President, Oil Retail sales Finland and Baltics at Neste.

 "Our customers have been greatly satisfied with the previously launched Futura fuels, and Neste Pro Diesel makes an excellent addition to this range of premium-quality products. The quality of Neste Pro Diesel and the benefits it offers for car engines are undisputable and proven by a number of tests," Kopra says.

Neste Pro Diesel always contains Neste Renewable Diesel, and it is produced at the company's Porvoo refinery in Finland. The product can be used on all diesel-fueled cars and its use can decrease fuel consumption and emissions, as well as improve the performance of the car. The cold properties of Neste Pro Diesel increase reliability, particularly in winter.

Neste Pro Diesel is the first diesel product in the world to comply with the WWFC 5 (Worldwide Fuel Charter) specification recommended by car manufacturers. The WWFC 5 specification sets tight requirements for fuels in order to secure, for example, a long and uninterrupted life for engines and exhaust after-treatment systems.
