HAM opens the first LNG station in Extremadura
Published by Will Owen,
HAM has opened the first gas station in the Autonomous Community of Extremadura, located in Merida, at exit 341 of the A-5 or Southwest motorway, also known as the Extremadura highway, one of the six radial highways that can be found in Spain. The new service station allows the supply of LNG, and also CNG, to trucks and vehicles.
This new service station has a great strategic importance in the national geography, since it will allow vehicles travelling between Madrid and Lisbon to be refuelled with LNG and CNG. In addition, the route of the A-5 unites the autonomous communities of Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura. It should also be noted that the gas station is on the vertical axis that represents the A66, which runs from north to south of Extremadura, and that links Seville with Oviedo.
After being one of the first companies to provide LNG for industrial use in Extremadura, HAM considers the vehicular gas sector in this autonomous community as a future commitment.
The new service station offers all users a double CNG pump, for light vehicles and trucks, and a double LNG pump for trucks. The innovative dual-fuel system of LNG and CNG, designed and manufactured by HAM, allows two vehicles to be refuelled at the same time using a single pump.
The supply station will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, allowing customers access using the HAM card for professionals. Payment can be made using any credit card.
