The overall objective of the Action is to study eﬃciency improvement of conventional and renewable Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV) market in the whole Atlantic Corridor (Portugal, Spain and France), and its interconnection with Rhine-Danube Corridor until Heddesheim (Germany) and the Spanish Mediterranean Corridor through new technologies and innovative solutions for supply logistic services, cleaner fuels, refuelling infrastructure, vehicle and components manufacturers and operational processes.
The Action will deploy a network of 21 L-CNG refuelling stations, enhanced with innovative solutions for the natural gas market. It will also involve 2 infrastructures to supply bio-methane and hydrogen enriched compressed natural gas (HCNG) in order to test the novel mixtures of conventional natural gas and renewable fuels (Bio-methane and H2). Several NGVs will be involved and monitored during the trial.
This study will allow a quick deployment of LNG and CNG by signiﬁcantly bringing unit cost down while improving the understanding of client’s needs. Once ﬁnished, the study should serve as a basis for a large-scale deployment of the cost reduced technology.
