Madrid passenger transport association may switch to LPG to face imminent sustainable mobility requirements

AETRAM (Madrid association of coach transportation entrepreneurs) and BeGas have recently held a meeting in which representatives of the association visited the company’s plant in San Agustin de Guadalix (Madrid). The aim was learning about the technological and innovative developments carried out by BeGas for the adaptation of passengers and heavy goods vehicles to LPG in order to meet the new requirements of sustainable urban mobility and decarbonisation.

BeGas presented its Autogas solution through its AVG engines, as well as the possibility to include the use of renewable bioLPG and further reduce carbon emissions. These engines have the latest European Euro VI-D homologation and obtain the DGT ECO label, with the benefits it entails when it comes to accessing the increasingly common low-emission zones in city centres, in addition to the consequent savings in fuel costs.

The AVG engine, built by BeGas at its headquarters in Amorebieta (Vizcaya) on a General Motors platform, has been developed in collaboration with the Centre for Thermal Engines (CMT) of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), being available in powers of 250, 280 and 310 HP.

The solutions that BeGas showcased to AETRAM for the discretionary sector range from the complete retrofit of the vehicle to the diesel-LPG dual fuel conversion. For more information, please visit this link.
