Pioneers in Europe betting on LNG-CNG gas stations with buried tank
Yellow Project is the HAM Group commitment to the construction of CNG-LNG service stations in confined spaces. The construction of a gas station implies the installation of large equipment, such as the tank, which requires large surfaces to be placed, respecting all the established security measures, which ends up reducing the useful space for the installation of liquefied natural gas (heavy vehicles) and compressed natural gas dispensers (passenger car and trucks).
Part of the loads will be carried out in the metanera terminal of Marseille
Assessing the foreseeable problems of lack of tank loading capacity during the winter period, the Enagás’ plant in Barcelona and the Bahía Bizkaia’s plant, HAM Group has signed an important LNG contract at the Marseille Terminal, in order to avoid the shortage of its customers in Spain during this period.
GasNet, a Czech natural gas distributor, has put into operation the first public mobile self-serve unit for liquefied natural gas (LNG) on the Czech market.
The facility is located in Klecany near Prague, in the direct proximity of Highway D8 at the Volvo Group truck center Prague North in Klecany.
HAM continues to expand and renew its own fleet
HAM Group has acquired 11 new Scania R 410 tractors that join our own fleet of Transportes HAM, a leading company in the road transport sector, specialized in flammable and cryogenic products, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied gases from the petroleum (LPG), fluorocarbons, sulfur and carbon dioxide, gases from the air (oxygen, argon and nitrogen), sulfur dioxide…
PAO NOVATEK (“NOVATEK” and/or the “Company”) today announced that NOVATEK Polska, a wholly owned subsidiary, launched an LNG filling station to provide clean-burning fuel for cargo trucks in Rostock, Germany. The LNG filling station can refuel up to 120 vehicles per day.
Gasum opens its sixth gas filling station in Östersund on 14th of November. The new station, now Sweden’s most northern, serves both heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) and passenger cars by offering environmentally friendly fuel solutions: biogas and natural gas. The new station is a crucial step in enabling long-distance transport to use gas from the south of Sweden to the north as well as answering to demand of compressed gas various vehicle segments in the region. Gasum plans to grow the Nordic gas filling station network to 50 stations by the early 2020s.
The first gas filling station for long haul transportation in Norrland is now open in Östersund, and offers liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) for Heavy Duty Vehicles. By expanding the filling station network in Sweden, Gasum is enabling gas-fuelled long-distance transport from the southern regions of the country to the north. In addition to HDVs, the station also serves passenger cars, delivery vehicles and buses with compressed gas, CNG.
The Gas Station allows refueling heavy vehicles
HAM Group opens its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) service station in Murcia, located on Highway N-344, km7, 30565, Las Torres de Cotilla (38.032651, -1.236596). Its location on the N-344, national road that connects Almeria with Valencia, by Jumilla and Yecla, is just 5 minutes from the A-7, also known as the Mediterranean motorway, which connects the Mediterranean coast from Algeciras to Barcelona, passing through strategic points of road transport such as Malaga, Alicante, Castellón, Tarragona …
The Gas Station allows refueling liquefied natural gas to trucks
HAM Group opens a new LNG service station in the Valencian Community. It is located on Calle Cid, 1 bis, 46560 Massalfassar, next to Delgo, operator of land transport of goods by road. Its location allows to quickly link with the V-21, motorway access to the city of Valencia, very busy for the transport of goods that goes to the port. In addition, it is located less than 15 minutes from the A-7, also known as the Mediterranean motorway, which connects the Mediterranean coast from Algeciras to Barcelona, passing through strategic transport points such as Malaga, Alicante, Castellón, Tarragona …
For the September ’19 issue of LNG Industry, LIQAL’s CEO Jorg , explains how technological developments, along with an increase in distribution infrastructure, are enabling the transition from diesel to more sustainable alternatives such as LNG and bio-LNG.
The next station
The future is small scale, which is a big deal. Diesel must go. The transport sector wants to accelerate the decarbonisation of transportation fuel and reduce dependency on oil-based fuels. Why? Because there is no future for these polluting fuels. Strict environmental regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower fuel prices are the main drivers for providing a clean alternative to diesel. LNG is an attractive ecological and economic alternative for heavy transport and is well-placed to meet new supply demands.
The challenge is to act quickly and improve the availability of fuelling infrastructure for end users like heavy-duty trucks and ships. For companies like LIQAL, one way to achieve this is to go small.
Small scale LNG is the big thing for the future according to LIQAL. The Dutch LNG technology developer has seen a tidal change in the industry and firmly believes that LNG is the next station on the road to decarbonisation.
ŠKODA is introducing the most eco-friendly variant of its new compact model at the CNG Mobility Days in Berlin (24/25 June 2019): the ŠKODA SCALA G-TEC. This natural-gas-powered SCALA completes the engine roster for the new compact model, adding a particularly efficient and eco-friendly variant. The 1.0 G-TEC has a peak output of 66 kW (90 PS), with three CNG tanks enabling a range of around 410 kilometres in natural-gas mode, according to preliminary data. Combined with the nine-litre petrol tank, this makes for a total range of around 630 kilometres. The new ŠKODA SCALA G-TEC will enter showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2019
Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development, explains: “Natural gas will play a key role in ŠKODA’s engine portfolio over the coming years in order to lower CO2 emissions. Our natural-gas engines are becoming more and more popular with our customers because of their low emissions. And anyone driving a ŠKODA SCALA G-TEC will in future also benefit from comparatively low fuel costs in many countries.”
ŠKODA is building a range of eco-friendly natural-gas models. The new ŠKODA SCALA G-TEC joins the OCTAVIA G-TEC as the second natural-gas-powered model in the ŠKODA model range. The new SCALA G-TEC is powered by a three-cylinder turbo with a 1.0-litre displacement and an output of 66 kW (90 PS). Its maximum torque of 160 Nm is transmitted via a 6-speed manual gearbox. The SCALA G-TEC is specifically designed for CNG use and complies with the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard. CO2 emissions are reduced by around 25 per cent compared to running on petrol, with considerably lower nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions as well and no particulates.
