EU backs Veurne LNG station

EU backs Veurne LNG station with EUR 520,000

The EU’s Ten-T programme will support with €520,000 the construction of the LNG refuelling station for trucks in Veurne, Belgium.

The publicly accessible station, situated near a major motorway linking six European countries, is expected to help reduce the carbon emissions of freight transport in Europe.

Trucks carrying goods between the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany often have to make a detour on their way to find the closest natural gas refuelling station. Expanding the network of LNG stations would reduce the length of their travel and encourage more transport companies to switch to environmentally friendlier LNG use, thus cutting down on carbon emissions.

This project aims to construct a pilot public refuelling station in Veurne and to use the lessons learnt for the future construction of two other stations in Belgium and France.

The project will also address safety and security standards for LNG, which will serve as a reference for developing national standards and safety legislation. The project findings will be widely shared with the public authorities, transport companies, fuel station and fuel card operators and fire brigades.
