cHAMeleon investigates technological and operational options for carrying out improvements on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) infrastructure, including vehicles, and LNG logistics service focused on bringing installation and operational costs down and making LNG an attractive commercial viable alternative fuel. The investigation will also address the business-client relation in order to address appropriately client’s needs in the different geographical areas
The overall objective of the Action is to foster the use of LNG for road transport on the Mediterranean Corridor (Barcelona-Ljubljana) through a study and a pilot implementation. Additionally, the Action aims to study the implementation of LNG refuelling point in the Port of Barcelona as one key core node in the exchange of goods (starting and ending point for road freight transport).
During the Action 3 L-CNG refuelling stations will be deployed in 3 strategic points across the Mediterranean Corridor, in the Port of Barcelona (Spain), in La Jonquera (Spain) and in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Moreover, in the frame of the Action, data will be collected with a view to define the roll out plan of a full network along the Mediterranean corridor. The collection of the data will be achieved through the trial operation and monitoring of the 3 stations implemented in the frame of the Action as well as 2 stations operating by the beneficiary in Italy and in France.
The Action is expected to deliver a deployment plan, appropriate business models and overall recommendations of the proposed technologies and solutions onto the whole Mediterranean corridor.
