Gasum has opened Värmland’s first liquefied gas filling station in Karlstad, offering LNG and LBG for heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs).
Värmland’s first gas filling station located in Karlstad is part of Gasum’s plan to guarantee HDVs a reliable filling station network spread across Sweden.
The new station is set to meet to an increasing market demand for low-emission fuels, especially among Värmland’s logistics companies. For example, Mejeritransport AB, a logistics company based in Värmland, has a fleet of about 35 trucks and a keen interest towards alternative fuels. Mejeritransport is one of Arla Food’s logistics contractors in Sweden.
“The expanding filling station network supports logistics companies operating in Sweden that want to reduce their carbon footprint. For logistics companies, LNG and LBG are a necessity in the transition to a carbon neutral future. At the same time, they enable significant savings in fuel costs. Gasum’s expanding network in Sweden now covers a distance of around 1000 km between our upcoming station in Kalmar in the south, and the Östersund station in the north” says Mikael Antonsson, Director Traffic Sweden, Gasum.
Gasum plans to grow the Nordic liquefied gas filling station network to a total of 50 stations by the early 2020s.
