May 21, 2020. Redexis has started works for the supply of the future compressed natural gas (CNG) station planned at the Intermodal Station in Palma, Spain. The works are part of the collaboration agreement signed in 2018 with the Consorcio de Transportes de Mallorca (CTM), dependent on the Balearic Government, for the promotion of CNG in the regular interurban public transport of travelers in Mallorca.
The determined commitment of the Balearic Government and Redexis for the use of compressed natural gas as a substitute fuel for diesel in the interurban transport lines of Mallorca will make it possible to place the Balearic Islands as a national benchmark in sustainable mobility and respect for the environment.
Redexis, as established in the agreement, facilitates the supply of natural gas and will assume the entire investment, which will mean more than 200,000 euros.
The new pipeline will be around 2,000 meters long, and will run through Foners streets, Avenida Compte de Sallent, Plaza Espanya and Eusebio Estada, ending at the location where the CTM plans to install a CNG facility for intercity buses.
The works have started during the month of May, at the request of the Palma City Council, so as not to interfere with the recent asphalt work that has been carried out on the Avenues, and it is scheduled to finish throughout the month of July.
In addition, during the month of June, the start of construction of the network is also planned to supply the station that the Palma EMT is building in its garages in Son Ferriol, so that in this way most urban buses run also with natural gas.
With these actions, Redexis reaffirms its commitment to developing the necessary connections that allow the availability of CNG at the supply points that are planned to be installed in Palma, Calvià, Inca, Alcúdia, and Felanitx for the refueling of urban and interurban buses, as well like other private fleet projects that are already betting on this new and more sustainable energy.
