In HAM Group we have been betting for almost 20 years on the use of LNG and CNG in transport. We were pioneers in Europe when we acquired, in the United States, 10 tractors powered by liquefied natural gas in the year 2000. Currently, our entire fleet uses LNG.

Our objective is to mitigate the greenhouse effect, eliminating sulfur emissions (SO2) and reducing emissions of carbon monoxide and CO2 by up to 25%, by 96% emissions of PM solid particles and by 85% emissions oxides and nitrogen (NOx). Our commitment to the environment has been recognized on several occasions within the sector, the latest being the Environmental Entrepreneurship Award granted by Gasnam, the Iberian Association that is responsible for promoting the use of natural gas in land and sea mobility.

HAM is a benchmark in the natural gas sector, betting on the use of compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas as a real alternative to other fuels such as gasoline and diesel, with the aim of reducing the negative impact on the environment, through the use of a clean and sustainable fuel, which does not affect the quality of the air and which allows savings between 30-50% compared to fossil fuels.

HAM GROUP renews its fleet with 25 new tractors

HAM Group has purchased 25 IVECO LNG tractors for road transport, respecting the environment

HAM Group has acquired 25 new tractors, continuing with our commitment to the use of natural gas in road transport, as a clean and safe fuel, which allows us to take care of the environment, with a reduction of the polluting emissions of our fleet, reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 60%, PM particles by 99% and carbon dioxide (CO2) by 95%, which will allow for better air quality.

HAM Group has added 25 IVECO Stralis NP 460 LNG to its fleet

Our commitment to reduce the greenhouse effect began 20 years ago, when we were the first company in Europe to bet on LNG, with the purchase, in the United States, of 10 tractors powered by liquefied natural gas. Our effort has been recognized with several mentions within the sector and recently Gasnam, the Iberian Association that encourages the use of natural gas in land and sea mobility, recognized our work with the “Environmental Entrepreneurship Award“.

Thanks to the incorporation of these 25 new tractors, HAM puts at the disposal of its drivers a vehicle that will allow them to work in a comfortable and safe environment, where the 71db is not exceeded and that has a system that alerts them in case of lowering their level of attention. This will allow them to carry out their work in optimal conditions, guaranteeing, as always, the maximum quality of the services we offer our clients.

In the coming months, HAM Group will continue to expand and renew its fleet of vehicles powered by LNG, continuing with our highest level of demand and respecting the environment.

HAM opens the first Gas Station in Extremadura

HAM Group has opened the first gas station in Extremadura in Mérida

The new service station allows the supply of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to trucks and vehicles

HAM has opened the first gas station in the Autonomous Community of Extremadura, located in Merida, at exit 341 of the A-5 or Southwest motorway, also known as the Extremadura highway, one of the six radial highways that can be found in Spain.

This new service station has a great strategic importance in the national geography, since it will allow to refuel compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to all those vehicles that make the route between Madrid and Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. In addition, the route of the A-5 unites the autonomous communities of Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura. It should also be noted that the gas station is on the vertical axis that represents the A66, which runs from north to south of Extremadura, and that links Seville with Oviedo.

After being one of the first companies to provide LNG for industrial use in Extremadura, HAM considers the vehicular gas sector in this autonomous community as a future commitment. First we installed a mobile LNG unit and now we open the first fixed station of CNG and LNG.

The new service station opened by HAM makes available to all users a double compressed natural gas (CNG) pump, for light vehicles and trucks, and a double liquefied natural gas (LNG) pump for trucks. innovative dual-fuel system of LNG and CNG, designed and manufactured by HAM, allows two vehicles to be refueled at the same time in a single pump.

This natural gas supply station, with which Mérida will count, will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, allowing customers to access the supply with the HAM card for professionals and with any credit card.

With the opening of the first gas station in Extremadura, in Mérida, HAM currently has 30 stations in the national territory and the rest of Europe. This confirms the commitment to compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) as an alternative, efficient, clean and sustainable fuel that minimizes the negative impact on the environment, reducing the emission of nitrogen oxides, fine particles and sulfur oxides, which affect air quality. In addition, the use of natural gas as fuel, allows savings between 30-50%, with respect to the use of fossil fuels derived from oil, which have a higher rate of contamination.

HAM Group opened its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) service station in 2000 and currently have the largest experience in Europe in the vehicular LNG sector, in addition to commercializing the largest volume of liquefied natural gas for vehicular use. We are benchmarks for other companies in the sector in the commitment to compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) as an alternative to diesel and gasoline.

At HAM we work every day to strengthen the network of CNG and LNG service stations. We are currently studying various projects that will allow us to open new refueling points for compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas in various parts of the Spanish and European geography.

Ham in Puerto de Vigo with the Core LNGas innovation project

Mobile unit HAM Project Core LNGas in the Port of Vigo

On November 23, HAM put into operation a liquefied natural gas (LNG) mobile unit that will supply natural gas in the Port of Vigo, to feed an electric generator that will provide electricity to ro-ro vessels within the CORE LNGas Hive project, financed by the European Union through the CEF funds (Connecting Europe Facility), led by Puertos del Estado and coordinated by ENAGAS. This project to supply electricity to ships is one of the four projects of the Port of Barcelona, ​​encompassed within a larger project, with the participation of most of the ports in Spain, which participate in different innovation projects with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The mobile unit has been designed, built and commissioned by the HAM Group. One of the challenges of this project has been to integrate the LNG storage, gasification and regulation facility into a 40-foot maritime container, guaranteeing the same benefits as any other terrestrial installation. This project will allow the Port of Vigo to reduce atmospheric emissions during the stay of ships in the port. It guarantees more sustainable traffic and respectful of the environment, not forgetting that economically they will also be more advantageous, since the mobile unit allows the reduction of emissions generated by ships when electricity is self-generated and liquefied natural gas has a lower cost.

The inauguration of the mobile unit in the Port of Vigo was made possible thanks to the “Crecimiento Azul” strategy of the Port of Vigo, which is part of the Core LNGas hive Project, in which the ports of Tenerife and Barcelona also participate. This project, financed by the European Union through the funds "Connecting Europe Facility" (CEF) and led by the Ports of the State, coordinated through Enagas, was launched in 2014 and has a budget that exceeds the 2,200,000 euros. Its objective is the reduction of emissions from ships during the period that are in the port, thanks to the development of an integrated, safe and efficient logistics chain that uses liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel in transport, especially maritime, in the Iberic Peninsule.

The presentation brought together in the Port of Vigo the Conselleira do Mar, Rosa Quintana; the President of the Port Authority of Vigo, Enrique César López Veiga; the Director of the office of Vapores Suardiaz -signatory agent of the Suardiaz Group-, Romina Fernández; the Director of the Department of Energy and Planning of the Enerxético Institute of Galicia (INEGA), Emeritus Freire; the head of the Infrastructure Technology Department of State Ports, José Damián Maldonado; and the Managing Director of Enagás Emprende and project coordinator, Fernando Impuesto; among others.

Albert Casasin, on behalf of the Engineering Department of Grupo HAM, was in charge of explaining to the attendees the basic characteristics of the container, as well as its operation. The start-up of this mobile unit will allow a reduction of up to 85% in the levels of nitrogen oxides, as well as eliminating all sulfur particles and oxides.

The Core LNGas hive project, put into operation, last year, a mobile unit to supply gas in the Port of Barcelona to an electric generator, to feed the moored ships. The project will continue in the following months in the port of Tenerife with the presence of HAM.

HAM Inaugurates Mobile Unit LNG in Santiago de Compostela

Unidad móvil gas natural licuado (GNL) de Grupo HAM

CNG and LNG Mobile Station in Santiago

Grupo HAM has inaugurated a mobile natural gas unit at the Santiago de Compostela gas station, located at Via Pasteaur, 25 (How to get there). With this new service station, HAM offers its customers the possibility of refueling liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). To refuel their vehicles, customers can use any credit card and HAM cards for professionals.

Currently we have several mobile service stations spread across different parts of the state geography and the rest of Europe, which allow the presence of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) in different points where customers do not have easy access. This fuel is increasingly widespread, since liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) are considered an alternative fuel, clean and sustainable, which allows the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions and eliminates fine particles and sulfur oxides, that are found in fossil fuels derived from petroleum. In addition licicuado natural gas (LNG), in the same way that compressed natural gas (CNG), allows a saving of between 30% and 50% to all our customers.

With this initiative, HAM maintains its leadership in the natural gas sector, always committed to its customers and being a benchmark for our competitors, since we are the company with more experience in the liquefied natural gas sector in Europe and who market a greater LNG volume for said use.

At HAM we work with the objective of strengthening our current structure of compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas service stations.
