Liquefied natural gas (LNG) service station developer, HAM Group (HAM), has started up two service stations in Spain.

One of the stations, located in Salamanca, runs 24/7 and features a 60m3 tank, with a submerged pump for LNG and two innovative LNG refuelling points for trucks and heavy vehicles. The other is a mobile unit in Dos Hermanas, Sevilla, which also allows the refuelling of LNG to trucks and heavy vehicles.

The mobile unit also houses a cogeneration system capable of electrically supplying the unit when demand is high. 

Both facilities house payment terminals which accept any debit or credit card, as well as the HAM Card for professional use.

The new stations add to HAM’s current network of more than 90 refuelling points on the main routes in Spain and across Europe.

Generating 30% less carbon dioxide (CO2) than fuel oil and 45% less coal, natural gas is considered the cleanest fossil fuel and - in its liquefied form - could be a key steppingstone in the energy transition.
