May 10, 2019. Alain Rousset, President of the Regional Council of New Aquitaine, and Gil Najid, Director of France for Endesa Energía, have inaugurated the first BioNGV station of Endesa located in New Aquitaine.
It is the first 100% BioNGV station of Endesa, fed with local biomethane from the Certenergie methanation unit.
Thanks to the financial support of the Regional Council of New Aquitaine, it is ensured that the charging of the BioNGV is carried out at the same price as the compressed natural gas (CNG) for 3 years. In fact, the institution compensates the additional cost linked to the consumption of biomethane.
This public station will have capacity for all types of vehicles, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in its three service lanes, with an area of more than 2,000 m². The refueling time of a heavy vehicle is less than 15 minutes and less than 5 minutes for a light vehicle. Payment is made by credit card or identification card for subscribers.
The Regional Council has also invested 356,640 euros in the installation of this second station in New Aquitaine. It intends to take advantage of this impulse to create an operating network of CNG/BioNGV stations, to support road transport companies (1,200 companies in New Aquitaine) in their efforts to renew and green their fleets, giving them access to a more economical and stable fuel than diesel.
The Regional Council wants to install 20 public filling stations and support the conversion of 500 regional freight trucks. In this way, it reaffirms its objective of 30% green gas by 2030 and 100% by 2050.
