March 11, 2021. Gasum is to open its first filling station for heavy-duty vehicles in Malmö. The station is the first to offer liquefied gas in the Malmö region and is Gasum’s 16th filling station to open in Sweden. It is part of Gasum’s plan to build a network of 50 filling stations in the Nordics by the early 2020s.
Gasum’s new filling station in Malmö has been built in conjunction with Volvo Truck Center and will be directly linked to the Center’s premises. The station is located in an industrial area with a lot of passing heavy-duty vehicles, which will benefit from the new filling station. It will offer both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) for heavy-duty vehicles.
”We are very pleased with this cooperation with one of the leading manufacturers of gas-fueled trucks and that we are able to offer our solution to their customers. Interest in gas as a fuel solution is steadily growing and thanks to government climate subsidy programs such as Klimatklivet, there are now more than 800 gas-fueled trucks on Swedish roads,” says Mikael Antonsson, Director Traffic, Sweden, Gasum.
The filling station is a long-awaited addition and has triggered interest from a number of logistics companies because of its location at an important traffic hub.
”We value our close cooperation with Gasum which has resulted in the first station offering liquefied gas in Malmö. We’re delighted that the station is also at our Volvo Truck Center facility, an important investment on our part. Now everyone transporting goods on major traffic routes in the vicinity can easily refuel their trucks with liquefied gas and reduce their environmental impact,” says Stefan Strand, Managing Director at Volvo Trucks Sweden.
