The new fueling facility is also the first in La Libertad region and is located near Trujillo Bus Terminal, on the Panamericana Highway. It features three booster compressors so that they can refuel a bus in only six minutes, allowing to supply nine to ten buses per hose in one hour. With six hoses the station can fill at least 54 buses per hour.
The opening ceremony was attended by the CEO of Clean Energy del Perú, Giovani Ugarelli; the manager of Transportation, Transit and Road Safety of the Provincial Municipality of Trujillo (MPT), Victor Hugo Del Carpio Sedano; the President of Consorcio Empresarial del Norte, Niggen Mori, and dozens of guests.
“This is the crystallization of two years of work between the MPT, COFIDE and employers in the transportation sector. We have worked hard because driving the energy change in the country’s fleet is a state policy to benefit the environment conservation, which means that our city is growing sustainably,” said Del Carpio Sedano.
Niggen Mori, who sponsored this first station and represents companies Esperanza Express, Nuevo California and El Cortijo, which comprise almost 80% of the city’s bus fleet, said: “As a carrier businessman I am happy there is a fueling station, since our goal is switching our fleet according to the rule, but using the CNG system, it benefits the city not only in environmental field, but also represents a cost savings for us”.
