The Nordic gas filling stations network is expanding as Gasum opens its ninth gas filling station in Sweden.
The station is the first one in Umeå and serves both heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) and passenger cars. It is also an important part of Gasum’s plan to build a network of 50 gas filling stations for HDVs by the early 2020s in the Nordics. The growing network opens further opportunities to answer to the increased demand for low emission road transport.
The new gas filling station is in an area with heavy traffic where fuel consumption is high and the need for clean fuel solutions is rising rapidly. The station is capable of servicing HDVs with liquefied biogas (LBG) and LNG, while passenger cars, delivery vehicles, waste management vehicles and buses can fill up on compressed natural gas (CNG) and biogas (CBG).
“As the gas station network expands, gas becomes available to more actors in the transport sector, which in turn increases the demand for gas. At the end of last year, we opened a new gas station in Östersund, which together with the Umeå station enables gas-fuelled vehicles to be used across Sweden,” says Mikael Antonsson, Director of Traffic at Gasum Sweden.
