Gas Natural Fenosa opens new fueling station in Barcelona
The Mayor of Santa Perpetua de Mogoda, Isabel García Ripoll; the General Director for Transport and Environmental Affairs of the Regional Government of Catalonia, Pere Padrosa; and the Director of Mobility Solutions of Gas Natural Fenosa, José Ramón Freire, officially opened a natural gas station in the town with a CNG pump for light vehicles and a LNG pump for trucks.
It is located at the Tranports Mariné installations, in Santa Perpetua de Mogoda (Barcelona), for strategic reasons: on the one hand, due to its proximity to the AP-7 motorway and the C-33, and, on the other hand, due to its position close to the El Vallés Integrated Goods Centre (or CEM in Spanish), a logistics platform that serves as a major hub for road haulage supply and distribution.
This new facility, which received an investment of close to 1 million euros, brings the total number of public LNG stations in Catalonia to five, making it the autonomous region of Spain with the highest number of such stations. Open 24/7, was designed to refuel the equivalent of 115 light vehicles and 32 trucks every day.
Gas Natural Fenosa’s new station is part of the European LNG Blue Corridors Project, an initiative aimed at fostering transport along certain European freight corridors via the use of natural gas in freight transport vehicles. 27 companies and associations from 11 different countries are involved in the initiative.
