Chart has confirmed that it joined in the celebrations as Shell opened its first LNG fuelling station in Rotterdam Waalhaven, the Netherlands, for trucks operating in Europe.

A statement from Chart said: “With more stations under construction and additional sites in the pipeline, it’s clear that, despite the recent fall in global oil prices, LNG continues to offer an attractive, cost competitive alternative to diesel, while proving to be a more environmentally-friendly option as well.”
Chart-Ferox detailed scope of supply for the Rotterdam station includes engineering, fabrication, installation and commissioning of the LNG storage tank, off-loading, pump skids, control and safety system, interconnecting pipe work and the LNG dispensers. Chart’s technology enables the LNG fuelling station to meet the industry’s highest technical and safety standards.
