March 11, 2019. Mexican and foreign businessmen plan to invest about 65 million dollars in the installation of natural gas vehicle (NGV) stations, said Andrés Bayona, President of the Mexican Association of Natural Gas Vehicles (AMGNV).
The executive said that the investment will contribute to the growth of the infrastructure and users who have chosen this energy for their mobility.
“We have the expectation of having close to 100 stations operating this year. This would triple the infrastructure with which we started at the beginning of 2019,” he said.
In the framework of the inauguration of AltFuels Mexico 2019, Bayona said that with a program of conversion to NGV in at least 10% of the vehicle fleet in the next 10 years could reduce the import of fuel in the country.
“Our country could replace the import of 230,000 barrels per day of gasoline and diesel, which would be equivalent to 23% of the import of those fuels made in January 2019, when 721,000 barrels per day of gasoline and 296,000 barrels per day of diesel were imported”, stated in his speech.
