Gasrec opened a Bio-LNG filling station at Bridgwater in the South West, near Junction 24 of the M5, in early June.
The new low emission station is part of a growing network across the UK, and will initially supply approximately 30 heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) run by a number of existing Gasrec customers.
Owing to the station’s strategic location Gasrec is already seeing strong interest from its existing and other retail and distribution customers using the M5 to access business in the South West.
Commenting on the new facility, Ben Sawford, Gasrec Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We were pleased to have the support of a number of our existing customers as we opened the West Country’s first bio-LNG filling station.
“As news of this facility grows, I am confident many other retail and distribution businesses will see the benefit its location brings in extending the reach of gas powered HGVs accessing the region and through into Devon and Cornwall.”
The Bridgwater site is a state-of-the-art pumped LNG filling station, supplying low emission Bio-LNG fuel. The flexible and modular facility has the capacity to supply up to 80 vehicles per day and will ultimately be expanded to replicate Gasrec’s first open-access station at the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal near the M1, which is now capable of fuelling up to 700 gas vehicles every day.
