On 17th of January of this year EPM Gas Techonology put into operation a new CNG station for the bus fleet of Aucorsa, Autobuses Urbanos de Córdoba. The station is located in the Pedroches Industrial Area, S / N, 14014 in Córdoba.
The operators work began the previous month of August and in less than 6 months it was finalized and was left ready for its use. In the construction process, the civil work and channeling of the 3 “and 1” pipes was carried out first. Next, the TEXAS type container was assembled, where the compressors, control room and storage are located. We received the compression station already assembled, managed by Global Gas Energy. The only thing that we had to do later is the electrical and gas connections, both suction and impulsion, a system designed by our engineering department; and the start-up.
The comprehension station has a total area of 12m x 2.35m x 2.69m, in addition to 50 meters long of the slow loading area. The station has two Safe compressors with a flow rate of 1190 Nm3 / h each and a consumption of 160Kw, a fast loading spout and 20 slow loading poles.
The project continues to grow and there is already an expansion proposal for the refueling of 20 more vehicles.
This station is the first and only station in operation in Córdoba at the moment. We want to highlight the great work done by our colleagues and thank the trust placed in our great EPM Gas Techonology team by Aucorsa.
