“The station opening has raised much expectation considering the fact that that there are companies interested in renewing its vehicle fleet with natural gas powered system,” said Pedro Reátegui regional manager of Clean Energy Peru.
The station will have six pumps, including three high capacity units to serve buses and three others to serve cars. “We hope that transport companies soon join this project, so the city will be able to experience a real change. One of the main issues of all modern metropolises is environment. As a consequence, the energy grid change is expected to provide a sustainable solution to fight against them,” added Del Carpio Sedano.
It is worth mentioning that an environmental impact study was conducted prior to the construction of the station, which was approved by the Supervisory Agency for Investment in Energy and Mining (OSINERGMIN), the body responsible for ensuring that all environmental and safety standards are met.
Moreover, the funding for the purchase of 250 CNG buses, which will be operated by Consorcio Empresarial del Norte, was approved last week.
