Spain: A Coruña will have its first public CNG and LNG station
Naturgy Mobility Projects Director Alberto Fariza and Los Angeles Gas Manager Esteban Parra signed the contract for the construction of the first dual public CNG and LNG station in the province of A Coruña. The refueling facility, to be owned by Los Angeles Gas group, will be located at a new service station in the A Sionlla business estate, in Santiago de Compostela.
It is a privileged location, with access to Galicia’s main communication routes such as the AP-9 (Vigo-Ferrol), the A-54 (Santiago-Lugo) and the AP-53 (Santiago-Ourense), from which will supply LNG to the heavy transport of Galicia with national and international traffic that circulates through this community. It also represents an important CNG supply point to meet the needs of commercial and light vehicles, in addition to betting on the use of eco-friendly fuels and improving the region’s air quality.
The station will have an LNG and two CNG dispensers and will allow fast filling of both light and heavy vehicles. The construction of this natural gas station, scheduled for the third quarter of 2020, will give economic competitiveness to the Galician transport segment and will cover the lack of LNG infrastructure in the community, so demanded by the representatives of the sector.
The launch of this new natural gas station is part of Los Angeles Gas’ social responsibility policy, which through this initiative supports Naturgy’s mobility strategy, whose objective is to enhance the use of natural gas as the best sustainable alternative for professional transport against petroleum fuels and promote a refueling network in Galicia.
