October 17, 2019. U.S. LNG equipment maker Chart Industries said its unit, Chart Ferox, has opened an LNG vehicle fueling station in Kostomloty, Poland.

The station has been engineered and built by Chart Ferox for Bisek-Asfalt that owns and will also operate the facility. It will service Bisek-Asfalt’s own fleet, as well as other companies in the region, Chart said in its statement.

Commenting during the opening of the LNG fueling station, Bisek-Asfalt’s chairman Michal Bisek, noted the company intends to expand its fleet of LNG trucks to 50 within the next 12 months. It was also noted that Chart has been selected by the company for the construction of the next LNG facility.

Bisek-Asfalt recently signed a deal with its compatriot Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) for the delivery over 1,000 tons of LNG as fuel for its current fleet. The two companies also agreed to develop a new LNG station. PGNiG will supply LNG from the President Lech Kaczyński LNG terminal in Świnoujście.
