Director of Industry Market and Energy Solutions at the company, René Sánchez Medina, revealed yesterday that they are planning to build new fueling sites to supply public transport vehicles in places such as Mexico City, Toluca, Aguascalientes, San Luis Potosi and León, where the company distributes natural gas and already has infrastructure.
The executive stated that the company seeks to replicate the project started in Monterrey in other parts of the country. In Nuevo Leon’s capital city is constructing two CNG filling stations -with an investment of USD 4.6 million- to service a fleet of 170 buses.
“The advantage we have right now here in Nuevo León is already materialized. Construction, management and permissions have just started. The refueling stations we are building are intended to offer CNG to public transport vehicles, such as buses and taxis”, explained the director.
The NGV program will start in Monterrey with 170 buses manufactured by Hyundai and two refueling stations installed by Gas Natural Fenosa. There currently 5,200 public transport units in operation in the metropolitan area. The state government plan is that all of them will run on CNG in the medium term, according to a report issued by Notimex.
