Aliara Energía announced that it has tripled its network of CNG and LNG stations in Spain in the last three years. Since 2021, the company has expanded from the Community of Madrid to six other regions throughout the entire Peninsula: Castilla y León, the Valencian Community, La Rioja, the Basque Country, Castilla La Mancha and Extremadura.
Likewise, the number of Aliara Energía customers has grown by 250% to over 5,000. A good part of them are recurring users linked to companies with fleets of vehicles, either manufactured with natural gas engines or adapted to this technology.
One of the most outstanding points in this evolution of Aliara Energía is represented by the service station that the company operates in the town of Monesterio in Badajoz and which has become a point of reference not only on the Ruta de la Plata, but also on the care model for professional drivers. At this facility, users can enjoy not only CNG and LNG pumps, but also specific customer services: truck wash, toilets, hotel, gym, free 24-hour guarded parking and even a grocery store and fruit shop.
The number of users of cars compatible with the use of natural gas already exceeds 35,000 units in Spain. With 51% more vehicles registered in the last year, the increase in individuals and companies that trust natural gas and biomethane has not stopped growing, especially among professional users: urban waste, logistics, taxis, delivery companies, and commercial fleets.
One of these companies is Noriega Grupo Logístico. With more than 600 employees and more than 10 million tons transported per year, the company has added 78 LNG-powered vehicles to its fleet and has closed an agreement with Aliara Energía for refueling at the company’s facilities.
“The advance of natural gas among Spanish professional fleets is a sign not only of the competitiveness of this energy source, but also of the deep awareness of companies and the self-employed of how important it is to advance in decarbonization and develop more sustainable mobility. The relationship we have with Noriega Grupo Logístico reinforces this conviction and the certainty that, together, we are developing a more viable and sustainable future,” commented Gerardo Fernández Jaén, from Aliara Energía.
“Road transport plays an essential role in logistics distribution, key to the proper functioning of economic activity. However, beyond its dynamic role, its impact on the environment does not go unnoticed either. For this reason, at Noriega Grupo Logístico we are committed to the decarbonization of this industry, being a decisive actor and aligned with the needs and concerns of our customers and the whole of society. Our relationship with Aliara Energía guarantees us not only the availability of service for our new sustainable fleet, but also to do it with the best quality and care for our drivers,” said José Noriega Andrades, president of Noriega Grupo Logístico.
