The HAM Group has officially launched a new public access station that will offer both compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the province of Barcelona. This new station is the first one to be located within the port of Barcelona, and with this there are already 18 public stations operated by HAM (13 with CNG and 15 with LNG).
Although the official opening will be in the months of September and October this year, the station is already operational for the refuelling of vehicles.
Thanks to this new HAM facility, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be provided to port vehicles, heavy or light trucks, vans, taxis and passenger cars. This installation service will not only reduce the operating fuel costs but also supposes a new alternative so that the port’s transportation can reduce emissions and improve the air quality in Barcelona. The station has a double compressed natural gas (CNG) dispenser and a liquefied natural gas (LNG) dispenser.
In addition to the station in the port of Barcelona, HAM plans to expand its network of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the installation of new refuelling points in the peninsula. The most advanced according to the information that GASNAM has received are located in the communities of Aragón, Asturias, Castilla y León, Galicia and Extremadura.
There are already 59 natural gas stations operation in Spain, which will soon increase by 43 that are currently under construction.
