A future without Alzheimer's

HAM Group, through its solidarity donations program, has begun to collaborate with the Pasqual Maragall Foundation, a non-governmental and non-profit organization, whose main objective is the early detection of Alzheimer's disease, to improve the quality of life of those affected and their caregivers.

The Pasqual Maragall Foundation is committed to a future without Alzheimer's, a disease that currently affects one in ten people over 65 years of age. Through science and innovation, it seeks to defeat Alzheimer's, betting on the prevention of the disease and working to achieve a future in which aging is associated with positive experiences.

The Pasqual Maragall Foundation for Research on Alzheimer's was born in April 2008, as a result of the public commitment of Pasqual Maragall, former mayor of Barcelona and president of the Generalitat of Catalonia, after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

HAM Group, an energy company focused on renewable energy for more than twenty years, is committed to participating in the improvement of those most vulnerable groups in our society. Our companies, related to natural gas in various fields, are made up of an excellent human and professional team, which has made us a benchmark in the gas sector in engineering, road transport of cryogenic and flammable products, CNG-LNG service stations, commercialization of Liquefied Natural Gas, liquefaction projects, maritime sector..., and other areas.

At HAM we believe in and bet on people, their lives and their stories. We feel fortunate to collaborate with the important work carried out by the Pasqual Maragall Foundation, betting on a future without Alzheimer's, and we promise to continue participating in this or other projects, such as those of Arrels Fundació and Open Arms, which allow us to continue helping people.

HAM delivers its LNG 100 Gas Station

HAM has designed, built and commissioned more than 25% of LNG service stations in Europe

More than 20 years betting on Natural Gas Vehicles

HAM Group celebrates the delivery in Saint Quentin Fallavier, France, of its 100th LNG service station, which reaffirms us as the main reference in the vehicular natural gas sector.

A recent study by NGVA Europe, the Association of Natural Gas and Biogas Vehicles, indicates that in Europe there are 400 service stations that allow you to refuel Liquefied Natural Gas. 1 in 4 of these LNG service stations has been designed, built and commissioned by HAM, many of them being owned by us and forming part our network of service stations. You can enjoy the reliability of fixed and mobile service stations, with the HAM quality seal, in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

The use of Liquefied Natural Gas in transportation is an important catalyst for climate neutrality, being a real, clean and safe alternative to traditional fossil fuels, drastically reducing emissions of fine particles, NOx and CO2, allowing a higher air quality and helping to mitigate global warming. In addition, LNG enables significant fuel cost savings.

HAM was a pioneer in Spain in 2000 when it added to its fleet 10 trucks, acquired in the US, powered by liquefied natural gas, taking on a major environmental challenge, with the aim of reducing polluting emissions from our fleet, also building the first vehicular LNG plant in Europe for the refueling of these vehicles. Later, in 2009 we designed and built the first public vehicular natural gas service station in Spain, located in Abrera, Barcelona.

We continue to bet on Vehicular Natural Gas, a rapidly developing market with great potential to achieve the decarbonisation of road transport. We develop new concepts of fixed and mobile service stations, which allow us to expand the infrastructure and we are committed to BIO LNG, characterized by its negative carbon footprint, in important projects, located in Vilanant (Girona) and Faenza (Italy), where we design, we manufacture and operate all the necessary equipment to optimize the process: Upgrading, Bio CNG compression, Bio LNG liquefaction, transportation through virtual gas pipeline and sale of biomethane at service stations.

At Grupo HAM we continue to work and innovate, always working in direct contact with our customers, to offer the best products and services that adapt to their real energy needs.
