December 12, 2020. LIQAL announces a new partnership with German company Flüssiggas-Anlagen GmbH (FAS) to facilitate the supply of turnkey, high performance liquefied natural gas (LNG) refueling stations, along with the flexibility of local maintenance for station operators throughout Germany.
LIQAL and FAS are committed to supporting the transition to LNG and bio-LNG across Germany and to contribute to a greener and cleaner transport sector. The agreement, signed on November 15, will strengthen collaboration between these European LNG players in one of the largest markets in Europe.
The market for LNG as a transport fuel is growing strongly in Germany, thanks in part to stable tax schemes and a road tax exemption for LNG-powered trucks until the end of 2023.
The partnership meets LIQAL’s own objectives to expand its reach across new territories in Europe and beyond. LIQAL’s CEO Jorg Raven explains: “By working in collaboration with local partners throughout Europe, we can contribute faster to the ultimate goal of switching from polluting diesel to cost-effective LNG and bio-LNG, to help meet Europe’s climate goal targets.”
The joint marketing and development of LNG fuelling systems in Germany is key to this new partnership. It highlights the importance of cross-border cooperation to deliver and expand the network of LNG stations for heavy road transport operators and truck drivers.
