May 20, 2020. Gasum is to build the first gas filling station in Järvenpää, in the Boogie business district. The new gas filling station will enjoy an excellent location at a traffic hub and will strengthen Gasum’s network of stations, especially in Central Uusimaa. The City of Järvenpää is striving for carbon neutrality by 2035 as part of the Resource Wisdom Järvenpää project, and the new filling station will contribute to promoting this objective. The gas filling station is expected to open by the end of 2020.
”The station in Järvenpää will be excellently located and has clearly been one of the most anticipated. It’s good news that the station will at last become a reality. The station will provide a diverse range of services for passing traffic and will be a good addition to our existing network of stations in the neighboring areas of Hyvinkää, Riihimäki and Porvoo. We believe the station will also attract heavier-duty delivery vehicle transport,” enthuses Olli Paasio, Director, Traffic Finland, at Gasum.
The new filling station will enable drivers to fill up with compressed natural gas (CNG) and biogas, which is equally suitable for passenger cars and light transport fleets, such as delivery and refuse collection vehicles. As a traffic fuel, gas is easy to use, low emission and cost effective. The filling station will enable increasingly more residents of Järvenpää as well as visitors to Järvenpää and businesses to choose more environment-friendly vehicles. Recent years have seen rapid growth in the popularity of gas cars in Finland, where the number of gas-fueled vehicles almost doubled in 2019.
