Redexis, a comprehensive energy infrastructure company dedicated to the development and operation of natural gas transportation and distribution networks, launched a new compressed natural gas (CNG) refuelling station in Zaragoza, located at the Auto-Taxi Cooperative Service Station of Aragon’s capital. The opening ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Zaragoza, Jorge Azcón; the North Regional Director of Redexis, Fernando Salvador; and the President of the Zaragoza Auto-Taxi Cooperative, Jesús Gayán.
Redexis made an investment of half a million euros to carry out the construction of this public access refuelling station, which is already in service. The new facility has an 800 Nm3/h compressor and two CNG dispensers with four simultaneous refuelling positions, capable of supplying CNG to all types of vehicles, with refuelling times between 3 minutes for passenger cars and 8 minutes for heavy vehicles. Thanks to this opening, both 1,700 taxi drivers and the general public are expected to enjoy the advantages of this fuel.
With the launch of this new natural gas station, Redexis continues to increase the CNG refuelling network in Spain and contributes to a more sustainable and economical mobility of the Spanish transport system.
Last June, Redexis signed an agreement with Cepsa for the creation of the largest network of natural gas stations in Spain, through an investment of 30 million euros in the 2019-2021 period. Redexis will undertake the construction and maintenance of 50 facilities located at Cepsa Service Stations in Spain, with LNG and CNG dispensers, whose supply and commercialisation will be carried out by Cepsa. This alliance also aims to reach 80 service stations before the end of 2023, with a total investment of 60 million euros.
In addition, in Spain, they already use the NGV through Redexis, the municipal fleet in charge of waste collection and cleaning in Palma de Mallorca -Emaya-, the Valoriza Servicios Medioambiental fleet in Ibiza, the bus fleet of the Municipal Company de Transportes de Palma -EMT- or the fleet of the cleaning collection company of El Puerto de Santa Maria.
