The Nordic energy company Gasum has further expanded its network of LNG filling stations with the opening of a new facility in Umeå, Sweden.

The station is the first one in Umeå and serves both heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) and passenger cars. It is also an important part of Gasum’s plan to build a network of 50 gas filling stations for HDVs by the early 2020s in the Nordics, the company said in its statement.

The new gas filling station is in an area with heavy traffic where fuel consumption is high and the need for clean fuel solutions is rising rapidly.

HDVs can fill up on liquefied biogas (LBG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG), while compressed natural gas (CNG) and biogas (CBG) are suitable for passenger cars, delivery vehicles, waste management vehicles and buses, the company said.

The increasing amount of new stations is a key factor in reducing emissions, particularly in the long-haul road transport segment. Heavy-duty transport currently accounts for up to 30 percent of Europe’s CO2 emissions from road transport.

According to the new emission standards passed by the EU in 2019, greenhouse gas emissions from heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) are to be reduced by 30 percent by 2030. The national target in Sweden is to reduce road transport emissions by 70 percent by 2030, as compared to 2010 levels.
