HAM Group celebrates the delivery in Saint Quentin Fallavier, France, of its 100th LNG service station, which reaffirms us as the main reference in the vehicular natural gas sector.
A recent study by NGVA Europe, the Association of Natural Gas and Biogas Vehicles, indicates that in Europe there are 400 service stations that allow you to refuel Liquefied Natural Gas. 1 in 4 of these LNG service stations has been designed, built and commissioned by HAM, many of them being owned by us and forming part our network of service stations. You can enjoy the reliability of fixed and mobile service stations, with the HAM quality seal, in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
The use of Liquefied Natural Gas in transportation is an important catalyst for climate neutrality, being a real, clean and safe alternative to traditional fossil fuels, drastically reducing emissions of fine particles, nitrogen oxides and CO2, allowing a higher air quality and helping to mitigate global warming. In addition, LNG enables significant fuel cost savings.
HAM was a pioneer in Spain in 2000 when it added to its fleet 10 trucks, acquired in the US, powered by liquefied natural gas, taking on a major environmental challenge, with the aim of reducing polluting emissions from our fleet, also building the first vehicular LNG plant in Europe for the refueling of these vehicles. Later, in 2009 we designed and built the first public vehicular natural gas service station in Spain, located in Abrera, Barcelona.
We continue to bet on Vehicular Natural Gas, a rapidly developing market with great potential to achieve the decarbonisation of road transport. We develop new concepts of fixed and mobile service stations, which allow us to expand the infrastructure and we are committed to BIO LNG, characterized by its negative carbon footprint, in important projects, located in Vilanant (Girona) and Faenza (Italy), where we design, we manufacture and operate all the necessary equipment to optimize the process: Upgrading, Bio CNG compression, Bio LNG liquefaction, transportation through virtual gas pipeline and sale of biomethane at service stations.
At Grupo HAM we continue to work and innovate, always working in direct contact with our customers, to offer the best products and services that adapt to their real energy needs.
