The 15 compression systems will be placed at facilities located in different routes, such as La Paz-Oruro, La Paz-Cochabamba, Oruro-Cochabamba, Cochabamba-Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz-Yacuiba and Sucre-Potosí. “The idea is that CNG vehicles will be able to ply across these routes using only this service, which is cheaper,” as published by YPFB’s National Marketing Management report.
The company awarded to supply and install such equipment is Gascorp, sales representative in the country of the compressors manufacturer Aspro.
Each compression system consists of a CNG compressor with a capacity of 1,200 cubic meters per hour, a command and control board, a storage of 1,250 liters and two high-flow natural gas dispensers with two hoses.
“For us, safety is one of the main principles, together with the quality of services we’re going to provide. This is the first batch of compressors arriving,” said Villegas during the presentation ceremony, conducted as part of the “Fuelling Station Modernization and Investment Plan of YPFB”.
