Gasum, the Finnish energy gas company, has been granted an investment subsidy of €9.3 million ($11.4 million) that will enable the expansion of the company’s LNG fueling network. 

The subsidy, granted by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, under the Climate Leap (Klimatklivet) program, is a step in Gasum’s pursuit of building a Nordic gas ecosystem that will, for example, expand the use of liquified natural gas (LNG) in heavy-duty vehicles.

Gasum noted the investment subsidy will help in opening up to 16 new gas filling stations around Sweden in the coming years.

Switching fuels in the heavy road transport segment, from diesel to either liquefied biogas (LBG) or natural gas (LNG), will have a significant impact on reducing carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), particulates and noise emissions. In the future, gas will play a major role in the transition to a carbon-neutral society.

Over the next few years, Gasum will widen the company’s LNG filling station network and LNG infrastructure in Finland, Sweden and Norway, expanding the operating range of LNG powered vehicles even further in the Nordic countries.

The 16 stations will be built in 13 Swedish regions: Västerbotten, Norrbotten, Värmland, Västernorrland, Gävleborg, Örebro, Västmanland, Uppsala, Västra Götaland, Östra Götaland, Jönköping, Kronoberg and Skåne, Gasum said.
