Finish energy company Gasum has opened a filling station for environmentally friendly road fuel gas in Seinäjoki, Finland.

Gasum said on Wednesday that the Seinäjoki gas filling station was opened on August 21, 2019.

This new filling station serves customers with heavy-duty road vehicles and passenger cars by offering biogas and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

According to the company, the central location of the Seinäjoki station supports gas-powered road transport in western Finland and also towards destinations in northern Finland by offering inexpensive and environmentally friendly biogas and LNG.

Jani Arala, senior sales manager for traffic at Gasum, said: “The growing gas filling station network offers more and more consumers and businesses the opportunity to reduce their transport emissions. I believe that the new station will result in more and more transport companies operating in South Ostrobothnia, introducing environmentally friendly gas-fueled vehicles in their fleet.

Gasum claimed that fully renewable biogas could reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the fuel life cycle by up to 85% compared with conventional fuels and transport use of biogas and LNG enables significant reductions in nitrogen oxide, particulate, and noise emissions.

Managing director of Huhtala Logistics, Tero Mattila, said: “As forerunners in the logistics sector, we want to be leading the way for cleaner transport and utilize low-emission fuel alternatives as soon as they become available.

The use of LNG will reduce our company’s emissions while at the same time, the competitive price of the fuel will provide us with a valuable competitive advantage. Our customers are also increasingly interested in low-emission fuel alternatives.

LNG offers a competitive fuel solution for immediate heavy-duty transport emission cuts as its life cycle greenhouse gas emissions are more than 20 percent lower than those of fossil diesel.
