International energy company Galp Energia (Galp), headquartered in Lisbon, Portugal, has commenced the process of authorization for the installation and operation of a CNG fueling facility in the province of Madrid, Spain. Galp’s Jarama service station is located in San Sebastián de los Reyes on the northern side of the City of Madrid, on the A1 Highway and in front of the renowned Jarama Circuit which hosts numerous motor racing events including the Spanish Motorcycle Grand Prix.
With the opening of the CNG station, which will be operational next autumn, Galp will bring significant environmental improvements to the province. Jarama service station will become the first station operated by Galp to supply natural gas, marking the beginning of the company’s commitment to install alternative fuel supply points in its service stations in Spain.
The CNG fueling facility will be installed with the collaboration of HAM S.A., a pioneer in the field of natural gas for vehicles.
Galp plans to open additional natural gas refueling facilities in Spain, where it operates more than 620 conventional fuel stations, throughout 2016.
