In 2017 HAM Group opened a modern mobile station that allowed LNG to be refilled in Irún, Gipuzkoa. At the demand of their clients, HAM Criogénica has worked to design, build and set up a new CNG-LNG service station. It is located next to the AP-8, also known as the Cantabrian Highway, which runs along the coast of the Basque Country, from Irún, linked to the French A-63 highway, to Bilbao (Vizcaya), where it connects to the AP-68, known as the Vasco-Aragonesa highway or Ebro highway.
The new CNG-LNG station has been possible thanks to an agreement between HAM Group and Transordizia, a leading company in the international transport of industrial vehicles and buses, which has led to the creation of Portabaskgas SL.
The facility has a double LNG pump for trucks and heavy vehicles, and a double CNG pump to refuel passenger cars and light vehicles. In addition, the natural gas storage tank has been buried, thus taking advantage of the entire surface for the circulation of vehicles, having 80,000 liters of LNG capacity and cylinders of 3,000 liters of CNG.
The station is open 24/7 and the access is completely free, being able to make payments with any credit or debit card. In addition, the company offers the possibility to companies and freelancers to enjoy HAM card for professionals.
With the opening of this new natural gas station in Irún, HAM Group makes available to all its customers a wide network consisting of 70 service stations, between fixed and mobile, located in Spain and at the main strategic points in Europe.
“We continue to bet on natural gas as an alternative fuel to minimize the environmental impact. LNG and CNG are cleaner and more sustainable fuels, reducing emissions of CO2, nitrogen and fine particles; in addition to allowing all our customers significant savings of 30-50% compared to the price of other fuels,” says the company.
HAM Group continues to work, together with its subsidiaries, to expand its network of CNG-LNG stations in Spain and the rest of Europe.
