December 21, 2020. Redexis is building two new natural gas vehicles (NGV) refueling stations on the island of Mallorca, Spain, as well as the branches necessary for supplying gas to both facilities. Located in the towns of Felanitx and Calvià, they will supply fuel to a total of 111 buses of the public transport service of the Balearic Islands (TIB) from December 2020 and January 2021, respectively.
The Felanitx facility, specifically, is being installed on land assigned by the Consorci de Transports de Mallorca (CTM), and its commissioning is scheduled for mid-December. It will supply fuel to a total of 61 buses that will operate from Felanitx and Artá with a consumption of 38.8 GWh/year, and this service may also be extended to other transport companies and industries present in the town.
The Calvià station, for its part, will be located in the Son Bugadelles industrial estate. It will supply gas to a total of 50 TIB buses from the first quarter of 2021, with a consumption of 16.9 GWh/year. It will also allow refueling NGV for private cars and trucks, coaches and vans.
Both locations are considered strategic since they are located in the main discretionary transport corridors in Mallorca.
