Almost eight years after the start of operations, GNL Quintero has completed loading its 50 000th truck with LNG in its truck loading station (ECC).
This important milestone for the company was celebrated in a meeting in which executives from different companies linked to the operation of the ECC participated, such as GNL Chile, ENAP, AGESA, and Enel, as well as the companies that provide the transport service of LNG to its point of consumption.
The truck loading station is an infrastructure designed to supply LNG to different parts of the Chile that are not connected to the Terminal through gas pipelines.
The 50 000 vehicles loaded with LNG (equivalent to 2.3 million m3) have supplied a network that spans several regions of the national territory - from that of Coquimbo in the north of the country, down to Puerto Montt in the south. The fuel has been used for both industrial and residential use. In this way, the GNL Quintero Truck Loading Station is consolidated as a relevant infrastructure for the security and diversification of the energy matrix.
The General Manager of GNL Quintero, Antonio Bacigalupo indicated that "The truck loading station has become a fundamental piece for our terminal, since its operation allowed to open an important LNG distribution channel that has accompanied the development of the industry of natural gas in our country. Our commitment is to continue contributing so that new areas of Chile can enjoy the benefits of this clean, safe and reliable fuel."
