HAM Group inaugurates the first LNG-CNG station in Europe with a buried tank

Installation process of the buried CNG-LNG tank at the HAM Irún service station   Service station HAM Irún LNG-CNG

YELLOW Project

HAM Group has opened the service station HAM Irún LNG-CNG, Gipuzkoa, the first LNG-CNG station in Europe with a buried tank. The opening of this new station has been possible thanks to the development of the Yellow Project, which has allowed the installation of an Ultra-compact Gas Station.

The service station is located in only 310m2, being completely passable by vehicles on 95% of its surface, thus eliminating any impact on vehicle circulation flows and reducing the aesthetic impact. It has an 80,000 liter LNG tank, which works at low pressures (3 bars).

The tank, which does not occupy space for the service station, has a submerged pump and the capacity to supply up to 12,000kg/h of GNL and 10,000 kilos of CNG per day.

The service station has an buried coldbox, an “on the fly” conditioning system and allows the installation of up to 2 double dispenser (4 hoses) of Liquefied Natural Gas for trucks and heavy vehicles, and 1 double dispenser (2 hoses) of Compressed Natural Gas for passenger cars, light vehicles and trucks.

The Gas Station, safer and with fewer necessary safety distances, is monitored remotely, guaranteeing its perfect operation and allowing any incident to be quickly resolved.

Grupo HAM opens CNG-LNG Gas Station with buried tank in Irún, Gipuzkoa

The Yellow Project has been developed by HAM Criogénica and our R&D department, which in constant contact with our customers, suppliers and manufacturers, works to develop high quality and reliable advances in improving infrastructure and logistics service. CNG-LNG, taking respect for the environment as a starting point.

Note that the tank has been manufactured by Vakuum, a HAM Group company, specialized in the design, production of semi-trailers and mobile units for the transportation of LNG and gases from the Air, following the latest innovations and quality and design regulations from the EU and ASME. The rest of the equipment has been designed and manufactured at HAM facilities.

At Grupo HAM we continue to innovate in all our projects, equipping our clients with new technologies that allow them to obtain the best product that adapts to their real energy needs. We were the first to bet in Europe on the use of LNG in road transport, we built a nozzle that allows us to supply Liquefied Natural Gas without emitting gases into the air, we developed service stations that allow biomethane to be refueled from wastewater, we designed and manufactured stations CNG-LNG vehicles and we have participated in projects that have allowed the development of a small membrane LNG tank and an LNG container for the maritime sector, which supplies natural gas to an electric generator that in turn supplies electrical energy to the moored ships at the port.

Gas station HAM – TRANSORDIZIA Irún, Gipuzkoa

HAM Group has opened a new CNG-LNG service station in Irún, Gipuzkoa

The Gas Station allows you to refill compressed and liquefied natural gas

In 2017 HAM Group opened a modern mobile station that allowed liquefied natural gas to be refilled in Irún, Gipuzkoa. At the demand of our clients, HAM Criogénica has worked to design, build and start up a new CNG-LNG service station. La Gas Station is located at Antxotxipi Kalea 4 (How to get there), next to the AP-8, also known as the Cantabrian Highway, which runs along the coast of the Basque Country, from Irún, linked to Highway A -63 French, to Bilbao (Vizcaya), where it connects to the AP-68, known as the Vasco-Aragonesa highway or Ebro highway.

The new CNG-LNG Gas Station has been possible thanks to an agreement between HAM Group and Transordizia, a leading company in the international transport of industrial vehicles and buses, which has led to the creation of PORTABASKGAS SL. The service station has a double liquefied natural gas pump for trucks and heavy vehicles, and a double compressed natural gas pump for supplying passenger cars, light vehicles and trucks. Note that the gas tank has been buried, thus taking advantage of the entire surface for the circulation of vehicles, having 80,000 liters of LNG capacity and bottles of 3,000 liters of CNG capacity.

The hours of the new CNG-LNG service station are 24 hours, throughout the year, and access is completely free, being able to make payments with any credit or debit card. In addition, we offer the possibility, to companies and freelancers, to enjoy our HAM card for professionals.

With the opening of this new Gas Station in Irún, HAM Group makes available to all its customers a wide network consisting of 70 service stations, between fixed and mobile, located in Spain and at the main strategic points in Europe. We continue to bet on liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas, as an alternative fuel, to minimize the environmental impact. LNG and CNG are cleaner and more sustainable fuels than fossil fuels, reducing emissions of CO2, nitrogen and fine particles; in addition to allowing all our customers significant savings of 30-50% compared to the price of other fuels.

HAM Group continues to work, together with its subsidiaries, to expand its network of CNG-LNG service stations in Spain and the rest of Europe.

Grupo HAM, leaders in the sector of natural gas vehicle (NGV), continues working to finalize new projects of service stations of compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas, which allow the growth of our network of service stations, facilitating our customers access to an environmentally friendly fuel.

HAM Group renews its fleet with 11 new LNG tractors

HAM Group has added 7 new LNG tractors to its fleet

HAM continues to expand and renew its own fleet

HAM Group has acquired 11 new Scania R 410 tractors that join our own fleet of Transportes HAM, a leading company in the road transport sector, specialized in flammable and cryogenic products, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied gases from the petroleum (LPG), fluorocarbons, sulfur and carbon dioxide, gases from the air (oxygen, argon and nitrogen), sulfur dioxide...
