March 19, 2021. Cepsa and Redexis have launched their third natural gas vehicle (NGV) refueling station, located in Trujillo. This inauguration is part of the strategic agreement announced in 2019, by which both companies committed to create the largest network of NGV stations in Spain.
Redexis has invested close to one million euros to carry out the construction of this facility, which supplies both compressed natural gas (CNG) for light vehicles and liquefied natural gas (LNG) for heavy transport. For both, the duration of refueling is between 3 and 6 minutes, depending on the type of vehicle.
The facility is located in Trujillo, a strategic location for the transport of goods through which more than 2,500 heavy vehicles circulate daily. It connects with Badajoz and Madrid through the A-5 highway, with Cáceres through the A-58 highway and with Plasencia through the EX-208. It is also a communications hub that connects Portugal and Spain, and opens the way out of Portuguese transport to the rest of Europe, connecting Madrid and Lisbon.
During the first half of 2021, both companies plan to start up another four facilities in some of the main snational transport corridors; specifically, they will be located at Cepsa filling stations in the provinces of Madrid (A-4), Cuenca (A-3), Jaén (A-4) and Salamanca (A-62).
