Gasum opens new gas filling station in Växjö, Sweden today
The new liquefied filling gas station provides renewable liquefied biogas (LBG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG), both of which the reduce CO2 emissions compared to conventional fuel, Gasum said.
The company can now provide both compressed and liquefied gas to transport companies operating across Sweden, from the northernmost parts to the southern regions, it added.
The Växjö station is Gasum's 22nd filling station in Sweden, bringing the total number across the Nordics to over 50, some of which are operated by Gasum’s partners.
Alwex Transport, a logistics company with an ambitious goal of contributing to a cleaner environment, has been instrumental in establishing the filling station in Växjö, said Gasum.
"We are incredibly pleased to be a part of this milestone in green transportation," said Peter Sagebrant, CEO of Alwex Transport. "Our collaboration with Gasum has allowed us to play a pivotal role in advancing more sustainable transport. We look forward to seeing how this new filling station will make a difference to the environment and provide our customers with the opportunity to choose a greener solution for their transport needs."
"We are thrilled to strengthen our filling station capacity in Växjö, enabling an increasing number of logistics operators to reach their emission targets by switching to cleaner, more cost-effective fuels. The Växjö station is the fruitful outcome of a partnership between Alwex Transport and Gasum that enables a new corridor connecting Sweden's East and West coasts," said Sharareh Edström, head of business Sweden, traffic at Gasum.
Gasum said it is committed to helping Sweden's national target of reducing emissions by at least 70% by 2030, compared to 2010 levels.
"To reach climate goals, we need to lower heavy-duty vehicle emissions originate from this sector. We’re delighted with the investment contribution from the environmental initiative Klimatklivet, enabling us to build the infrastructure that contributes to dramatically reducing emissions where they are most needed," Sharareh concluded.
