Gasum inaugurated its new biogas filling station on 9 June in Ålesund municipality, on the western coast of Norway. The new gas filling station saw Gasum collaborate with the Norwegian postal service Posten and ÅRIM, a waste management company. It is Gasum's fourth LBG filling station in Norway.
The new station caters to logistics companies operating in the region as well as to long-haul traffic from Ålesund through Trondheim or Oslo all the way to Sweden, according to the company.
It is situated in the Digerneset Næringspark logistics hub and is a crucial component in Gasum’s expanding Nordic gas filling station network, which is already supporting the growth of biogas in the heavy-duty sector, Gasum added.
Posten’s and ÅRIM’s investments in biogas trucks gave Gasum the necessary base load volume to invest in the filling station. Using biogas will allow Posten and ÅRIM to reduce their emissions from heavy-duty transport. The station is open to all logistics actors and to the public.
“Reducing CO2 emissions and minimising local pollutions is an important part of Posten’s sustainability targets. We have set ourselves ambitious targets and biogas is one of the renewable sources used by our fleet. Gasum opening in Ålesund is most welcomed,” said Margrethe Aamodt, SVP People and sustainability Nordic, Posten Norge AS.
“The core of ÅRIM’s business is caring for the environment. Choosing biogas for our transports is as natural as it can be. Biogas supports local production of biogas and enables us to be part of the circular economy,” commented Øystein Solevåg, CEO of ÅRIM and Bingsa Gjenvinning.”
“We are very excited to expand our network of filling stations to the west coast of Norway. Digerneset Næringspark is an important logistics hub, and the station will supply the area’s logistics actors with biogas so that they can reduce their emissions from road transport both within Ålesund and for longer distance transport to the Oslo area. I am happy to see considerable interest in biogas in Norway indicated by major logistics players. By expanding the Nordic gas filling station network, we can also provide new opportunities for local companies to substantially lower their emissions,” stated Jogeir Munkeby, sales manager, Traffic Norway at Gasum.
