Spanish alliance creates first network of multi-fuel service stations
Transport services company Andamur and energy company Molgas have signed an agreement to set up a new partnership with the aim to build and operate a network of multi-energy refueling stations offering LNG and CNG, in addition to conventional fuels. The new venture is going to have a pioneering role, responding to the demands of fleets both of trucks and light vehicles and that may refuel any kind of fuel. The new refueling stations will be built at the beginning of 2019, at Andamur’s Service Areas located in La Junquera (Gerona), Guarromán (Jaén), Pamplona (Navarra) and San Román (Vitoria). More than 500,000 trucks are refueled at these facilities every day, and those companies may now include natural gas in their fleets, thus anticipating market trends and being able to obtain an increased competitive advantage. Miguel Ángel López, Andamur CEO, has expressed his satisfaction with this agreement and said: “With the ‘We look after what really matters’ initiative, we do not only help clients to anticipate market trends, but also provide sustainable alternatives for light and heavy vehicles, promoting the reduction of CO2 emissions.” “To achieve this, we have set up a partnership with Molgas, leading company in the natural gas market. Their deep knowledge in this field together with our experience in managing service areas and services to drivers are a perfect combination to be successful,” added López regarding the importance of collaborating with Molgas. In this extremely encouraging scenario for sustainable mobility, where more and more Spanish transport fleets add vehicles powered by natural gas, AltFuels Iberia 2019 will take place on 11-14 June at IFEMA Trade Center, Madrid. It will be an event consisting of first level conferences and exhibition of vehicles of all kinds, refueling stations, components, plants, road and marine engines, as well as the entire universe of the alternative fuels industry with the latest technological developments, multiple options for networking, business and new advances.
