THE PROJECT

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. This study, in the form of real-life trial, aims to allow a quick deployment of LNG and CNG by significantly bringing unit cost down while improving the understanding of client’s needs.

RESULTS / OUTPUT

gasinera

21 L-CNG stations along the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Rhine-Danube corridor

1 bio-methane station along the Mediterranean corridor in Madrid (Spain)

1 HCNG station along the Atlantic corridor in Burgos (Spain)

car

More than 200 NGVs will participate in the real-life trials, directly and indirectly to ensure the use of the stations and, hence, securing the collection and analysis of meaningful operational data to feed the study. Furthermore, at least 30 will be monitored to analyse technology performance, vehicle emissions and fuel economy over several routes.

co2

Improve air quality and reduce emissions from road transport sector compared to Diesel. Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) will emit 30% less CO2 emissions, 85% less NOx and will virtually emit zero particulate matter (95%), while in turn makes less noise (around 10dB less). Additionally, it will suppose up to 37% of fuel savings compared to Diesel.

idea

ECO-GATE will implement and test enhanced L-CNG and CNG refuelling stations with a large amount of innovative solutions and technology capable to reduce the overall investment cost between 10 and 20%, according to each situation, condition and type of station, as well as to reduce operational expenditures, improve sustainability, efficiency, reliability, management and accessibility of the refuelling stations.
