The overall objective of the Action was 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 aimed 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 were 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 was collected and a roll out plan of a full network along the Mediterranean corridor was prepared. The collection of the data was 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 delivered a deployment plan, appropriate business models and overall recommendations of the proposed technologies and solutions onto the whole Mediterranean corridor.
