December 16, 2020. Gasum opens its 14th gas filling station for heavy duty vehicles (HDVs) in Sweden. The station in Borlänge is the first for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Dalarna and will be a filling station for heavy vehicles. At the moment, Gasum has 27 filling stations for HDVs around the Nordics. In the coming years Gasum is planning to increase its network in the Nordics up to 50 filling stations.
Gasum’s new station in Borlänge offers LNG and liquefied biogas (LBG) for heavy duty vehicles. The filling station is conveniently located in an area with terminals and industry that experiences heavy traffic.
“We are very happy to be in Borlänge and to also continue to strengthen the gas infrastructure in Dalarna. Most of our customers have operations throughout Sweden, so the station in Borlänge is a welcome addition to the network of filling stations for them as well. Interest in gas as a fuel solution is steadily rising and thanks to government climate subsidies such as Klimatklivet, more than 800 gas-powered trucks are now making their way to Swedish roads,” says Mikael Antonsson, Director Traffic Sweden, Gasum.
The public filling station in Borlänge has been built in close collaboration with the region’s largest logistics company MaserFrakt and TRB. TRB is a company that owns 12 large transportation and logistics operators around Sweden. Its network consists of approximately 7,000 vehicles. The Borlänge station is being built on MaserFrakt’s property, which further strengthens the cooperation between MaserFrakt and Gasum.
