New site joins what will be Spain’s largest natural gas station network
Cepsa and Redexis opened their second natural gas refueling station in Zaragoza. This opening is within the strategic agreement announced in 2019, by which both companies committed to creating the largest network of natural gas stations in Spain. Redexis made an investment of close to one million euros to carry out the construction of this facility, which supplies both CNG for light vehicles and LNG for heavy transport. For both, the duration of the refueling is between 3 and 6 minutes.
The facility is located in Mercazaragoza, the largest agri-food logistics platform in Aragon. It is a strategic location for the transport of goods through which between 5,000 and 8,000 heavy vehicles circulate daily. Likewise, Zaragoza is a logistics hub that connects the main cities of Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia), and is an important connection point for routes to France by road.
During the first months of 2021, both companies plan to start up another four natural gas stations in some of the main national transport corridors; specifically, they will be located at Cepsa’s service stations in the provinces of Madrid (A-4), Cáceres (A-5), Cuenca (A-3), and Jaén (A-4).
“We continue to advance in the development of the largest gas mobility network in Spain with the start-up of natural gas stations in strategic enclaves 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.
Likewise, Javier Migoya, Redexis B2B director, commented: “From Redexis and together with Cepsa, we continue to bet on the creation of the largest natural gas station network in Spain, building and developing the necessary infrastructures to promote alternative fuels that drive a more sustainable, economic and environmentally friendly mobility in our country.”
