February 21, 2021. Gasum has opened its newest gas filling station in Järvenpää, at Diggarinkatu 8 A, in the Boogie business district near the Lahti motorway. The filling station serves passenger cars and medium-duty transport vehicles in the area with compressed biogas and natural gas.
The first gas filling station in Järvenpää further strengthens the network of filling stations in Southern Finland. Located in the proximity of the Lahti motorway, the station serves both passing and local traffic in the area and supports the existing network of stations in the neighboring areas of Hyvinkää, Riihimäki and Porvoo. The station serves customers with biogas and natural gas, which are suitable for passenger cars and light delivery fleets, such as vans and refuse collection vehicles.
The new station will enable increasingly more residents of Järvenpää and entrepreneurs in the area to refuel with user-friendly and environmentally friendly fuel, which can help to significantly reduce traffic emissions. Also, Savon Kuljetus Oy, which has expanded its operations to the Greater Helsinki Area, has chosen new vehicles fueled by compressed biogas to reduce environmental loading.
“The new station in Järvenpää well supports our strategy of switching over to a fleet running on gas. We want to be a leader in clean traffic and are committed to using only biogas in our new delivery vehicles. By March, we will have 10 biogas-fueled delivery vehicles operating in Southern Finland, which means that adding to the number of gas filling stations in the region is especially good news,” says Kimmo Pekonen, Business Director at Savon Kuljetus.
