Renewable gas producers will be able to bring their fuel to the market more economically thanks to the new leasing service developed by Grupo Industrial Calvera, a Spanish company specializing in gas transportation. This company, which has already signed two leases, one with an international industrial gas and hydrogen company and the other with a major Spanish gas supplier, now plans to extend the service to all of Europe.
With this formula, described as “an authentic industry first in the sector”, Calvera offers the possibility of renting its full range of gas transport options, including trailers and mobile refueling units to customers such as suppliers of biomethane, energy services companies and energy facilities. The company indicates that this service will significantly improve the profitability of many biogas producers and renewable hydrogen projects, as well as it will attract companies specialized in gas transportation.
To announce this new service, Calvera has received more than 20 companies -including Gasunie, Honda, Total and Engie- at its Épila plant, near Zaragoza, where they showcased their latest innovations and products, such as mobile gas pipelines for hydrogen and biomethane as well as equipment available for leasing.
Rafael Calvera, General Director of Calvera, said about the service: “Taking the gas to the end user in the most profitable way can be a challenge for the producers of hydrogen, biomethane and CNG. We think that this leasing service makes the supply and distribution of “green” gas more efficient from the economic point of view, simplifying the business model in general. In any new strategy it will reduce the initial capital expenditures and will help the overall financing of the project.”
With this service the entire Calvera range is available, including its mobile refueling equipment and the light modules that can be loaded and unloaded from the tanker trucks with a hydraulic boom crane with hook. All leased vehicles will receive full maintenance by the Calvera team of specialists.
