In parallel to the process of renewal of the urban bus fleet launched by the City of Huelva, transport operator Emtusa has put out to tender the construction of a compressed natural gas refueling facility to supply the 10 new vehicles that will be added into this service public.
The CNG station will mean “an important environmental improvement and a saving of 30% in the fuel costs of these ten buses with respect to those that are going to be replaced,” said the councilor for Citizen Security, Mobility and Transport and president of Emtusa, Enrique Gaviño, adding that this service station “will be available to the entire city also offering LNG or CNG to vehicles outside the municipal company.”
To this end, the last Board of Directors of Emtusa approved a contract that involves an amount of 281,930 euros for the first year, promoting a new improvement in the urban bus service with a fuel that is “much more environmentally-friendly and economic.”
Gaviño added: “We take a step further in our firm commitment to Emtusa, a company that since our Government team reached the City of Huelva is promoting important measures at all levels, initiatives that are bearing fruit with a positive response by part of the citizenship. And 2018 is going to be an important year to continue giving Emtusa this leap in quality.”
