The new station, which will be the first to offer natural gas in the province of Malaga and the first to offer LNG in Andalusia, will be equipped with a tank of 60 m3 with a capacity to fill up to 200 trucks a year, and also a CNG dispenser with double capacity to fill up to 600 vehicles a year. The site is expected to begin operations in February 2014.
The director of Mobility Solutions of Gas Natural Fenosa José Ramón Freire commented they plan to start with those cities that are transportation nodes and that “can service the city, but also a corridor,” as is the case of Malaga and the future station to be installed in Granada, reported local newspaper Finanzas. He also stressed that the new site will be public but fundamentally “will serve carriers or taxi drivers.”
It is worth adding that this initiative will contribute to the development of infrastructure for alternative fuels while also preventing the emission of about 62 tons of CO2 per year. Furthermore, the use of natural gas will allow a saving of 30 percent compared to diesel fuel and 50 percent compared to gasoline.
