The market for natural gas as a vehicle fuel is growing in Portugal. There are only a few natural gas filling stations in country as yet, but increasing awareness of the environmental and financial benefits of running on natural gas is raising expectations of a sharp increase in the number of refueling sites over the next few years.
Ballast Nedam has selected a Portuguese partner for the local work. ERI Engenharia S.A. will take responsibility for the permit acquisition, civil engineering and technical installation on the project site. After commissioning, the company will continue to handle the service and maintenance for the station. The installation will be attached to Ballast Nedam’s SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system, which now monitors over seventy natural gas refueling stations across Europe.
