The station is characterized chiefly by complete absence of service personnel. A special terminal is mounted at the station, capable of accepting cash and special Neste brand cards. The time required to fill one´s gas tank at such stations is about three minutes. Governor of St. Petersburg Vladimir Yakovlev, Executive Vice President of Fortum Oyj company Veli-Peka Helander and President of Neste St. Petersburg Olavi Suomalainen attended the station´s opening ceremony.
