Gasum will open a liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) filling station near Arlanda Airport in Stockholm at the end of the year.
The station is Gasum’s first in the Stockholm area. By opening a station offering LNG and LBG for heavy-duty vehicles, the company said it is responding to its customers’ needs to extend the existing station network to another key transport hub. Following the opening of this latest station, Gasum’s network in Sweden will include 16 filling stations in total.
The Arlanda filling station will be located at a central heavy transport hub in the vicinity of Arlanda Airport, Arlandastad Shopping Centre and the E4 motorway. Gasum is working with Arlandastad Holding, the company that manages Airport City Stockholm – a new city forming around the airport.
Dieter Sand, CEO of Arlandastad Holding, said: “We are very pleased to have Gasum, a company that is actively working towards reaching the EU’s climate goals, choose us as their partner in Arlandastad. The station encourages companies operating in the region to invest in cleaner transport, which goes hand in hand with our efforts.”
“The gas filling station near the Arlanda airport is a long-awaited addition to our existing network,” said Mikael Antonsson, director of traffic at Gasum, Sweden. “Many of our customers are now able to increase their investment in gas-powered vehicles, of which Lidl is a good example.
“This interest in sustainable solutions for transport remains very strong. Liquefied gas is a fuel that offers both sustainability and competitiveness.”
Carl Ceder, logistics manager at Lidl Sweden, commented: “Gasum and their expansion of new biogas filling stations is a very important part of our conversion to completely fossil-free transport.
“Thanks to the fact that they are opening new gas stations for biogas, such as the future one in northern Stockholm, we have been able to start the process of switching biogas trucks and thereby reducing our climate impact.”
