Gasum has inaugurated its fourth gas filling station in Sweden. The new station is located in Torsvik, just south of Jönköping, and it offers LNG and LBG for heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs).
Gasum is planning to create a network of around 20 filling stations for heavy duty vehicles in Sweden and Finland by the end of the year, with 12 of the stations to be located in Sweden, and to introduce a total of 50 new filling stations in the Nordics by the early 2020s.
“The expanding filling station network supports logistics companies operating in Sweden that want to reduce their carbon footprint. The new filling station has a great location near Torsvik’s IKEA warehouse along the main highway in Jönköping. In addition, it’s a good continuation to the circular economy cooperation Gasum has with IKEA Finland,” states Mikael Antonsson, Director, Traffic, Gasum Sweden.
“By the end of the year, heavy-duty vehicles will be able to drive across Sweden with a low-emission fuel as the number of gas filling stations increases to 12. I’m happy about the rapidly increased demand for gas not only among logistics companies but also among logistics buyers,” Antonsson continues.
