Gasum has opened a new gas filling station in Trondheim, Norway in partnership with cooperative retail chain, Coop.
The facility offers both liquefied and compressed gas, responding to the growing demand for low emission fuel solutions in Norway. The station will also be used to supply Coop with renewable biogas for its transport partners.
The station is well located in the middle of a logistic hub for heavy-duty traffic that integrates Gasum’s gas filling station network in the Oslo region with northern parts of Sweden, such as Östersung and Umeå.
“We are very excited to see our joint efforts with Coop be realised, and the station open and supplying the area’s logistic actors with biogas and natural gas,” said John Melby, director of Traffic, Norway at Gasum.
“I am extremely happy to see considerable interest towards gas in Norway indicated by major logistic players. By expanding the Nordic gas filling station network, we can also provide new opportunities for local companies to substantially lower their emissions.
“This is Gasum’s northernmost gas station in Norway and, as such, will open new routes for companies driving on gas.”
A recent study commissioned by Gasum, surveying 101 decision-makers from Norwegian transport companies, revealed that up to 45% of companies are interested in gas as a fuel option. Norwegian transport companies consider gas a cost-effective way to reduce emissions and above all, to convey a positive image of their companies to both current and potential clients.
