Two new LNG filling locations have opened in the Netherlands. Both are owned by PitPoint.LNG and are situated at DCB-owned TruckEasy filling stations and located at: Peuldreef 2 (2635 BX) in Den Hoorn; and Erik de Rodeweg 3 (5975 WD) Trade Port North, Greenportlane in Sevenum/Venlo.
The LNG filling location in Den Hoorn is situated in the heart of the Netherlands, only a few metres from the A4, and is easily accessible from Delft, The Hague, and Rotterdam.
The LNG filling location in Sevenum/Venlo is also easily accessible, with direct access to the A67 and A73, and is ideally located for trucks driving to the hubs for the Rotterdam and Antwerp ports and Central Europe.
The LNG filling location in Sevenum/Venlo was officially opened in January 2018 by Paul Driessen, alderman of Horst aan de Maas, Freddy Berkel of DCB Energy, and Jan Willem Drijver of PitPoint.LNG. The LNG filling location in Den Hoorn was opened at the end of December 2017.
In July 2017, DCB Energy and PitPoint.LNG signed a contract for the realisation of three new LNG filling locations. Two of these locations are obviously now operational, and the third location in Roosendaal will open in the spring. With Den Hoorn and Sevenum/Venlo included, there are now 24 LNG filling locations in total in the Netherlands, well-spread across the country.
Jan Willem Drijver, managing director PitPoint.LNG commented "The new LNG trucks can do around 1500 km on a full tank. With the current network of LNG filling stations at strategic locations, we pretty much have country-wide coverage."
The network of LNG filling stations will continue to grow beyond the Netherlands. "PitPoint.LNG is currently working on the development and exploitation of LNG locations in Belgium and Germany, which will make it possible to use our network in these countries too. This way, carriers and their clients are no longer prevented from investing in clean transport," explains Drijver.
