Spain’s Molgas Energía has started the installation of a fixed LNG station, with an approximate capacity of 400 cubic meters and an operational capacity of 200 cubic meters per hour, in the Turia Sur pier of the port of Valencia.
The launch of the facility will accelerate the plans of Valencia port authority to reduce contaminant emissions, since LNG cuts carbon dioxide emissions by more than 25% and eliminates pollutant particles, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.
The project, which makes the port of Valencia the first to offer this type of refueling from land to boats powered by LNG, has the financial support of the European Commission through the CORE LNGas Hive facility.
Its objective is the development of the integrated, safe and efficient logistics chain for the supply of liquefied natural gas as fuel in the transport sector, especially maritime, in the Iberian Peninsula.
Molgas Energía is a leading company in energy services with LNG, for industrial applications, cogeneration, vehicular, maritime and other sectors.
