New CNG/LNG station joins future largest NGV fueling network in Spain
Cepsa and Redexis have opened their fifth natural gas refueling station, located in Getafe (Madrid). This inauguration is part of the strategic agreement by which both companies undertook to create the largest natural gas station network in Spain. Redexis made an investment of more than one million euros to carry out the construction of this facility, which supplies LNG for heavy transport and CNG for light transport
The refueling point is located on the A-4, the highway that connects Madrid and Cádiz, at the height of the municipality of Getafe, a strategic location for the transport of goods between the center and the south of the peninsula, with a daily circulation of more than 17,000 heavy vehicles, and next to large logistics centers in the south of Madrid.
In addition to this new station, both companies have facilities in Puerto Lumbreras (A-7), Mercazaragoza (A-2), Trujillo (A-5) and Castillejo de Iniesta (A-3); and, over the next few months, they plan to launch another three sites on some of the main national transport corridors (in the provinces of Salamanca, Ciudad Real and Pontevedra), as well as two other CNG stations in Madrid.
“We continue to advance in the development of the largest NGV mobility network in Spain with the start-up of natural gas stations in strategic areas for mobility in our country. The diversification of our offer of energy solutions for light and heavy transport is part of our contribution to the energy transition,” said Santiago Ruiz, Director of Cepsa’s Service Station Network.
Moreover, Javier Migoya, Redexis B2B Director, commented: “From Redexis and together with Cepsa, we continue to support the creation of the largest natural gas station network in Spain, building and developing the necessary infrastructures to encourage alternative fuels in our country that boost a more sustainable, economic and environmentally-friendly mobility.”
