New refueling station allows the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to heavy cargo vehicles and passenger transport in Peru.

Last update:

Grupo HAM has designed and manufactured the first mobile LNG station in South America, according to a company release. This unit has been commissioned to HAM by Quavii, owned by Promigas Group, market leader in the distribution of natural gas by pipeline in Peru. 

The mobile unit, located in Trujillo, also known as Micro Refueler, has a cistern made by Vakuum, a company of the HAM Group, specialized in the construction, repair and maintenance of structures for the storage of cryogenic and compressed gases. The cistern, with a stainless steel interior and exterior body, has a load capacity of 25m3 of LNG, which will enable it to supply fuel to up to 30 transport units. The mobile unit has the highest level of automation and a built-in payment management system.

During this week the Micro Refueler unit has been presented to the local press and in the coming months Quavii will incorporate new liquefied natural gas tractors, both from Scania and from other manufacturers.

With the Micro Refueler, HAM Group has collaborated with Quavii to take the first step in the implementation of the Green Corridor project, which aims to promote the implementation of LNG refuelling stations along the entire northern coast of Peru.
