The mayor of San Cibrao das Viñas, Manuel Pedro Fernández, and the director of Mobility Solutions of Gas Natural Fenosa, José Ramón Freire, launched this week a CNG filling station at the city’s industrial park, which is the first of its kind operated by the company in this Spanish autonomous region.
The new installation consists of two compressor of up to 225 Nm3/h each and two compressed natural gas pumps. The infrastructure is designed to service about 80 light vehicles daily.
This infrastructure joins the existing public station network that supplies natural gas for vehicles in Spain. Currently, there are 38 of these facilities in operation throughout the country, 22 of which are owned by Gas Natural Fenosa. Out of this total, 20 stations offer only CNG, two only LNG and 16 both CNG and LNG.
Natural gas for transportation is competitive from the economic point of view. In comparison with diesel, gasoline and LPG, users can save 30%, 50% and 25%, respectively with natural gas.
