Redexis opens its first natural gas refueling station in Zaragoza
Redexis, a comprehensive energy infrastructure company dedicated to the development and operation of natural gas transportation and distribution networks, launched a new CNG refueling station in Zaragoza, located at the Auto-Taxi Cooperative Service Station of Aragon’s capital. The opening ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Zaragoza, Jorge Azcón; the North Regional Director of Redexis, Fernando Salvador; and the President of the Zaragoza Auto-Taxi Cooperative, Jesús Gayán.
Redexis made an investment of half a million euros to carry out the construction of this public access refueling station, which is already in service. The new facility has an 800 Nm3/h compressor and two CNG dispensers with four simultaneous refueling positions, capable of supplying CNG to all types of vehicles, with refueling times between 3 minutes for passenger cars and 8 minutes for heavy vehicles. Thanks to this opening, both 1,700 taxi drivers and the general public are expected to enjoy the advantages of this fuel.
With the launch of this new natural gas station, Redexis continues to increase the CNG refueling network in Spain and contributes to a more sustainable and economical mobility of the Spanish transport system.
Last June, Redexis signed an agreement with Cepsa for the creation of the largest network of natural gas stations in Spain, through an investment of 30 million euros in the 2019-2021 period. Redexis will undertake the construction and maintenance of 50 facilities located at Cepsa Service Stations in Spain, with LNG and CNG dispensers, whose supply and commercialization will be carried out by Cepsa. This alliance also aims to reach 80 service stations before the end of 2023, with a total investment of 60 million euros.
