The Dutch Oil and Gas company Liqal has agreed to build a new LNG refuelling station for the Belgian transport company Remitrans.
Liqal was awarded the contract after a tender procedure.
Frank Coppens, Logistics Manager at Remitrans, commented, “By switching the fleet from diesel to LNG fuel, step-by-step, Remitrans improves the local air quality and we reduce the CO2 emission per truck by at least 20%. With the purchase of 9 ex-factory Euro-VI Volvo trucks, 15% of our trucks will run on LNG this year, next year this will be 30%, with as future target to change the entire fleet.”
Joost Jansen, Business Development Manager at Liqal, added “We are sure that LNG is the alternative for diesel in heavy duty and long haul transportation. Now that there are various truck brands available and more and more transport companies decide to switch to clean and affordable LNG, the demand for refuelling stations for this alternative fuel will also increase. Remitrans has selected our recently introduced prefab refuelling station, whereby the time to market can be reduced by a few months. Great for the turnaround time of the project and for the wallet of our customers, that is what we aim for.”
