By building this LNG regasification module, the company will bring a natural gas supply to both towns while a gas pipeline is built. Gas Natural Cegas has invested 616,000 euros in this regasification module, which has been installed on the Pau de Polop industrial estate where the adjacent urbanisation already receives a natural gas supply.
The company expects to be supplying both towns by early next year. The first stage will consist of bringing a natural gas supply to approximately 1,125 homes and businesses in La Nucía and over 1,000 homes in Polop.
