HAM Group, through its company HAM Criogénica, was in charge of designing, building and commissioning the new Petrem filling station, which will allow refueling of CNG and LNG. The new facility is located at Petrem Trucks, in Santa Llogaia d’Àlguema, Girona, very close to exit 3 of the AP-7, the N-2A and the N-2, a radial road that connects Madrid and the border crossing of the municipality of La Junquera, passing through towns such as Alcalá de Henares, Guadalajara, Zaragoza, Lérida, Barcelona and Gerona.
The project has been possible thanks to Petrem Distribución S.A. (company that sells fuels and lubricants) commitment to NGV. The station has a 98 m3 vertical tank and has two single-hose LNG dispensers for refueling trucks and heavy vehicles and two double-hose CNG dispensers for refueling cars, light vehicles and trucks.
The design made by HAM allows an easy expansion of the service station, allowing a maximum of four jets to fill LNG (two doubles + two singles) and a maximum of six jets to fill CNG (four doubles + two singles). The site it is open 24/7 and is freely accessible to all clients.
The new Petrem facility will allow its customers to enjoy all the environmental and economic benefits of using natural gas. CNG and LNG are clean fuels, respectful with the environment and that reduce the environmental impact, thanks to the reduction of CO2 emissions, NOx and fine particles. In addition, both fuels will allow their customers to save 30-50% compared to other less environmentally-friendly fuels.
HAM Cryogenic has years of experience in the LNG sector with more than 300 projects around the world, both in design and construction of facilities for all kinds of industries and the naval sector.
