ReFuels, the supplier of renewable biomethane (Bio-CNG) for the decarbonisation of HGVs, has opened a new refuelling station at Bangor in North Wales.
The station, which is owned by a joint venture (JV) with Foresight Group, features 12 fuel pump islands, allowing more than 500 trucks to be refuelled per day with a total capacity of 25 million kilograms (kg) of Bio-CNG annually.
It is located in Parc Bryn Cegin, just off Junction 11, North Wales Expressway and is ideally positioned to cater for trucks heading to and from Holyhead Port.
This is the 13th public access Bio-CNG station operated by ReFuels in the UK under the CNG Fuels brand, and the current network can refuel more than 6,500 HGVs daily.
This equals an annual dispensing capacity of almost 300,000 tonnes of biomethane annually and a potential saving of more than 800,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year when compared to diesel.
The year-end 2026 target of 30 to 40 stations in operation for ReFuels equals a total capacity of up to 15,000 HGVs per day and more than 600,000 tonnes of biomethane annually.
The group has one more station under construction in Aylesford and expects construction work on two further stations to begin shortly.
Philip Fjeld, CEO and co-founder of ReFuels said, “The station in Wales is an important step in expanding the network of reliable and convenient compressed renewable biomethane refuelling stations.
“It will open another critical transport route for fleet operators and hauliers of heavy-duty vehicles in the UK for refuelling of a low-carbon fuel. This will also be the very first station for Bio-CNG in Wales.”
