November 29, 2019. The ENGIE company started the first natural gas vehicle (NGV) filling station in Veracruz, Mexico, after the acquisition of 70 percent of the capital of the Mexican company GASECO GOLFO.
With the entry into operation of the ENGIE facility, the entity’s public transport will have access to a fuel that emits 80 percent less polluting particles and generates approximate savings of up to 45 percent when compared to conventional fuels.
The service station is the beginning of a project that includes the construction and operation of approximately 20 stations in the next 5 years, which represents an estimated investment of 35 million dollars.
The company’s business plan considers opening more refueling stations in Veracruz, Quintana Roo, as well as in Yucatán, Tabasco, Campeche, Tlaxcala, State of Mexico, Tamaulipas, Puebla, Querétaro and Jalisco, where the company also has natural gas networks.
ENGIE added that, with the recent operation of the facility, there is also an opportunity to commercialize the molecule, transport, distribution, compressed natural gas, electricity generation and natural gas for vehicles. It also complements the sustainable mobility offer, boosting both electric and natural gas mobility.
