Spain: first CNG station in Ciudad Real becomes operational
The mayor of Ciudad Real, Pilar Zamora, the Councilor for Mobility, David Serrano, the delegate of Mobility Central-South Naturgy, Javier Bueno, and AISA manager, Ángel Hernández, have opened the first public natural gas station for vehicles in Ciudad Real capital, located in Larache Polygon.
The new facility is strategically located since it is two kilometers from the A-43, which connects Ciudad Real with the A-4, one of the Spanish motorways with the most truck and passenger traffic, and has connection also with the A-41 and the N-430.
Naturgy made the investment to launch this facility, which has an LNG tank for CNG supply, allowing the city bus fleet operated by the AISA company to be supplied, facilitating the transition of other municipal vehicles to this technology and responding to the increasingly growing demand for heavy transport and vehicles.
“We already have three urban buses that run on natural gas, and the acquisition of eight more is planned, so it is important to have a place to refuel these buses. We want an environmentally sustainable city, with less polluting emissions, and with this we are getting it,” said Zamora.
She also indicated that this natural gas station is in an important communications hub where numerous heavy goods transport circulates. "Anything that does not pollute and protect the environment will be supported by the City Council," she added.
