New NGV station opens, part of plan to build Spain’s main fueling network
Cepsa and Redexis have opened their third natural gas station, located in Trujillo, Extremadura. This opening is part of a 2019 strategic agreement, by which both companies committed to creating the largest natural gas station network in Spain. Redexis made an investment of close to one million euros in the development of this facility, which supplies both CNG for light vehicles and LNG for heavy transport. For both, the refueling time is between 3 and 6 minutes, depending on the type of vehicle.
The Trujillo station has a strategic location for the transport of goods through which more than 2,500 heavy vehicles circulate daily. It connects with Badajoz and Madrid through the A-5 highway, with Cáceres through the A-58 highway and with Plasencia through the EX-208. It is also a transport hub that connects Portugal and Spain, and opens the way out of Portuguese transport to the rest of Europe, connecting Madrid and Lisbon.
During the first half of 2021, both companies plan to start up another four natural gas stations in some of the main national transportation corridors; specifically, they will be located at Cepsa Service Stations in the provinces of Madrid (A-4), Cuenca (A-3), Jaén (A-4) and Salamanca (A-62).
“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.
Javier Migoya, Redexis B2B director, also 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 infrastructure to promote alternatives fuels in our country that boost a more sustainable, economic and eco-friendly mobility.”
