The new service station will facilitate the continuous supply of LNG to a fleet of 30 trucks from Cervecera AB InBev Chile, which will be incorporated into the transport fleet of Transportes San Gabriel. These vehicles will benefit from fuel savings of over 20% compared to other less environmentally friendly fuels, while also emitting fewer harmful emissions.
