Shell has announced the opening of its third LNG truck refuelling station in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The LNG truck refuelling station is located in the western port area, a location with significant turnover from ships to trucks that distribute goods into the city.
The station has a capacity of 70 000 litres of LNG, enough to fuel around 200 trucks per day.
Giorgio Delpiano, General Manager for Shell’s Euroshell business, said: “I am excited by the progress we have made, in a short time, developing an LNG refuelling network in the Netherlands with the opening of this new station […] We believe LNG is a viable fuel option for heavy-duty truck fleet owners, today.”
Lauran Wetemans, General Manager Downstream LNG, added: “We expect LNG will form a bigger part of the sustainable transport fuel mix in the future. Shell continues to work together with engine manufacturers, customers and policy makers to strengthen the business case for the use of LNG fuel in transport. As customer demand grows, we plan to open additional LNG sites in the Netherlands.”
From 1 October 2015, Shell will have access to import and storage capacity in the Gas Access To Europe terminal (Gate). As such , it will be able to supply its own LNG to marine and road customers in Northwest Europe. The LNG fuel for its truck refuelling network in the Netherlands will be supplied form here.
Earlier this year, Shell opened its first two LNG refuelling stations in the Netherlands in Rotterdam and Waalwijk.
