Chart has announced the successful commissioning of a fourth permanent fuelling station for natural gas vehicles close to Helsinki Vantaa airport, which is now open to the public and has served its first customers. The public station, owned and operated by indigenous gas sector expert Gasum, is further helping to develop the country’s natural gas vehicle fuelling infrastructure alongside its other Chart designed and built counterparts in Helsinki Vuosaari, Turku and Jyväskylä.
Commenting on this latest addition to the fuelling network, Pavel Mátl, Business Director Chart Ferox, said, “Chart shares the view that natural gas will play an increased role in the transport sector. Strict emissions targets and concerns about CO2 footprint, mean that LNG/LBG is fast becoming accepted as the future fuel for heavy haulage vehicles. It’s very exciting to see the commitment of major truck OEMs, through the availability of modern LNG powered vehicles, and progressive companies, like Gasum, investing in the fuelling infrastructure to keep demand and supply in tandem.”
As the market evolves, so does Chart’s fuelling station design. This latest one is equipped to serve various types of LNG fuelled trucks and incorporates a CNG module and dispenser for cars and vans, which can accommodate two vehicles simultaneously. Safety, reliability, zero emissions to atmosphere and operator comfort are paramount and the station incorporates many associated features. The payment terminal for debit and credit cards is integral to the dispensing islands and Chart technology keeps fuelling times consistent with those for diesel fuelled vehicles.
