July 20, 2020. In 2017 Grupo HAM launched a modern mobile station that allowed refueling of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Irún, Gipuzkoa. At the demand of its customers, HAM Criogénica has worked to design, build and start up a new CNG-LNG service station. The facility is located at Antxotxipi Kalea 4, next to the AP-8, also known as the Cantabrian Highway, which runs along the coast of the Basque Country, from Irún, linked to the French A-63 highway, to Bilbao (Vizcaya), where it connects to the AP-68, known as the Vasco-Aragonesa highway or Ebro highway.
The new CNG-LNG installation has been possible thanks to an agreement between Grupo HAM and Transordizia, a leading company in the international transport of industrial vehicles and buses, which has led to the creation of PORTABASKGAS SL. The filling station has a double LNG pump for trucks and heavy vehicles, and a double CNG pump for supplying passenger cars, light vehicles and trucks. It should be noted that the gas tank has been buried, thus taking advantage of the entire surface for the circulation of vehicles, having 80,000 liters of LNG capacity and 3,000 liters bottles of CNG capacity.
The new CNG-LNG service station is open 24 hour, throughout the year, and access is completely free, being able to make payments with any credit or debit card. In addition, it offers the possibility, to companies and freelancers, to enjoy the HAM card for professionals.
With the opening of this new refueling facility in Irún, the HAM Group makes available to all its customers a wide network of 70 stations, between fixed and mobile, located in Spain and at the main strategic points in Europe.
