As part of Sweden's national strategy to cut emissions in the country's transport sector, Gasum and Scania opened a biogas filling station on 27 May in Södertälje.
An inauguration ceremony was attended by industry stakeholders and political decision-makers, which Gasum said represents a clear indication of the wide acknowledgment of the importance of transitioning towards greener fuels in transport.
The Södertälje station, replaces older stations in Järna and Älvsjö, and will provide greater capacity and reduced refuelling time.
The design boasts two compressed gas dispensers and two liquefied gas dispensers, catering to both heavy-duty transport and smaller vehicles, thereby supporting an inclusive green transport system.
The new station is located near the Södertälje Syd junction, and is adjacent to Scania’s production plant - embodying an engagement in the shared focus on sustainable solutions for one of Sweden's most active logistic hubs.
Sweden has an ambitious roadmap of achieving a 70% reduction in transport emissions by 2030, with 2010 as the baseline.
"In order to reach our urgent climate targets, we need to halve emissions every decade," said Christian Levin, CEO of Scania and Traton. "Biomethane is an important part of Scania's broad sustainability offering, providing cost-efficient emission cuts, as well as several circular benefits and increased energy resilience. The Nordics have pioneered biomethane in transport. Together with our partners we can offer complete waste-to-vehicle solutions.”
Sharareh Edström, head of business traffic Sweden at Gasum, said: "This partnership with Scania is important as they are providing land for this project and continue to develop gas-powered trucks. It enables us to continue to expand and secure energy supply for sustainable solutions. This new station caters for not only the local transport and logistic needs, but national and international transports as well."
