Gasum has opened its sixth, and Sweden’s most northern, gas filling station in Östersund.
The station, the first gas filling station for long haul transportation in Norrland, is equipped to supply heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) with LNG and LBG. It is also capable of supplying passenger cars, delivery vehicles and buses with CNG.
“There is a growing demand among logistic buyers and transport companies for environmental and cost-efficient fuel solutions. Liquefied gas meets these requirements. The opening of Östersund’s filling station and the development of several other upcoming stations in southern Sweden means that, soon, HDVs will be able to drive across Sweden with low-emission fuel. In addition, as there is already a significant number of CNG vehicles in the region and high demand for low emission solution in different vehicle segments. This station is a good example how the same infrastructure can serve different vehicle segments in regional transport.” says Mikael Antonsson, Director Traffic Sweden, Gasum.
Currently, Gasum is focused on investing in expanding its gas filling station network in the Nordics. By the early 2020s, the company aims to have created a network of 50 new HDV gas filling stations in Finland, Sweden and Norway. In addition to the new station in Östersund, the stations that are already operational in Sweden can be found in Västerås, Norrköping, Örebro, Jönköping and Karlstad.
