Gasum is investing in the construction of around 50 liquefied natural gas (LNG) and biogas filling stations for heavy-duty vehicles in Finland, Sweden and Norway by the beginning of the 2020s.
The investment will multiply the size of the Nordic heavy-duty vehicle gas filling station network, enabling considerable emission cuts.
The new filling stations will be located at key transport nodes as regards road haulage, and they will enable significant increases in the use of liquefied natural gas and biogas in heavy-duty transport.
The switch of heavy-duty vehicles to liquefied natural gas or liquefied biogas (LBG) will result in significant cuts in carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, particulate and noise emissions from transport, according to Gasum.
”We’re on our way towards a carbon-neutral society and it’s now time to accelerate the pace. Gas plays an indisputably important role in this transition,” says Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen.
