The Iberian Association of Natural Gas for Mobility (GASNAM) and the Asia Pacific Natural Gas Vehicles Association (ANGVA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for improving operations and objectives, many of them coincident.
ANGVA, established in 2002, is a trade association for the natural gas vehicles industry in the Asia Pacific region. It serves the needs of all stakeholders in the NGV industry and markets such as gas suppliers, equipment manufacturers, refuelling stations, conversion workshops, government agencies, consumers, etc. ANGVA’s vision is “To lead and promote Asia Pacific NGV industry towards sustainable growth” through the promotion and development of a safe, profitable and sustainable market for natural gas as an environmentally friendly, economically viable, and energy security fuel for the transport sector.
GASNAM was originally founded in Spain in 2013, but has since expanded to Portugal, thereby representing the Iberian interests related to compressed and liquefied natural gas for mobility. GASNAM has grown from 30 members in January 2014 to the present 92 members, from both terrestrial and maritime sectors.
GASNAM and ANGVA are exchanging experiences and joining activities including but not limited to the development of a standard, still nonexistent in Europe, for regulating the activities of supply of LNG for bunkering ships, in its various forms, such as truck-to-ship, port-to-ship or ship-to-ship, in which Spain has already accumulated significant experience.
ANGVA is an affiliated association member of NGV Global.
