“We want to promote conversions not only among taxi or public transport vehicles, but also among ordinary people who want to save money with CNG but still have doubts in converting to the system,” CPGNV general manager Jorge Juárez told Andina.
The executive also highlighted that 2,000 vehicles are being converted each month, 40 percent of which are brand new units. “The CPGNV maintains its estimation of 350,000 vehicles powered by natural gas by 2015. It also expects the expansion of market to the interior of the country, as long as natural gas networks grow in other regions,” he added.
Regarding CNG stations, there are 146 that are prepared to serve 150,000 vehicles without any problem, Juarez said. In addition, he confirmed that the company Grifos Espinoza is building a new refuelling point in the region of Ica, in the south of the country.
