April 27, 2021. Q8 and KC LNG, a Makeen Energy company, are developing Denmark’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station for trucks in Padborg.
The project aims to boost the progress towards greener road transport sector, and is seen as a step towards a CO2 neutral future.
In its statement, KC LNG noted that initially the station will provide LNG before adding fossil-free liquefied biogas (LBG).
KC LNG will deliver the station, which is expected to be ready at the end of 2021, and will be the first of its kind in Denmark. It will be located at Q8’s IDS station in the Danish city Padborg, which is right next to a major highway and the border to Germany.
In Denmark, the road transport sector is held back by the complete lack of refueling options for LNG. Therefore, Q8 has chosen to take the first step with this project, aiming to make it easier for North European freight companies to invest in cleaner technology.
Today, LNG usage is widespread in Germany, among other countries, and on the rise in Sweden. Compared to diesel, LNG-fueled trucks emit up to 22 per cent less CO2 and completely eliminate the emission of harmful particulates.
The technical solution will be delivered in collaboration with the Dutch company LIQAL.
