GDF Suez LNG Solutions, in cooperation with FrieslandCampina, a Dutch internationally operating dairy cooperative, said it has opened the first LNG station for trucks in the North of the Netherlands on 8 April.
The station is located at the Firezone station of Salland Olie in Leeuwarden, GDF Suez LNG Solutions said in a statement.
Frank van Ooijen, Director Sustainability of FrieslandCampina said: “The official opening of this LNG filling station enables the first 6 LNG lorries of FrieslandCampina transporters (4 milk collection truck trailers and 2 INTRA trailers) to really tank LNG.
The bi-fuel lorries of FrieslandCampina reduce the CO2-emission at least by 12% compared with diesel and they are quieter as well.”
