May 28, 2020. Bilfinger and Green Solutions have signed a framework agreement covering engineering, assembly and services for liquefied natural gas (LNG) filling stations in Germany. The goal is to establish a comprehensive filling station network for trucks powered by LNG – a more environmentally friendly alternative to diesel.
Bilfinger EMS will serve as technology partner of Green Solutions for the design, construction and maintenance of the LNG filling stations. The Cloppenburg-based company will contribute its engineering expertise to approval planning for future LNG filling station locations and will also co-ordinate other planning services. Furthermore, Bilfinger EMS will carry out technical inspections for plant function, plant safety and conformity with German laws and standards. Bilfinger EMS will also provide qualified personnel for the installation, technical testing and commissioning of the filling stations. The systems will be monitored 24/7 and, if necessary, assistance can be provided by telephone or on-site. The first LNG filling stations ordered by Green Solutions from Bilfinger EMS will be installed before the end of this year at locations in Germany, in Bremen (A 281 freight centre), Melle (A 30), Cologne (A 4 freight centre), Greding (A 9) and Ettenheim (A 5). The filling stations will be operated by Alternoil GmbH, on whose behalf Green Solutions is acting as project developer.
