Cryostar and TSG are joining forces to offer turnkey LNG and LCNG stations for the European market.
In that regard, the two firms have entered into a European partnership contract in November, according to a statement by France-based TGS.
Under the deal, they plan to build “multiple” stations in Europe.
Also, the agreement follows ten joint projects which included building LNG and LCNG stations in Europe.
Cryostar is an expert in rotating machines and cryogenic solutions, with more than 200 LNG/LCNG vehicle filling stations installed all over the globe, while TSG provides installation, maintenance, and other services to fueling stations.
“We will be combining Cryostar and TSG’s expertise to support our clients in their station construction projects, as well as the technical exploitation, service, and maintenance of those stations,” Philippe Heisch, Cryostar’s head of sales for LNG solutions, said.
Bertrand Leroy, TSG’s gas sector director said this partnership with Cryostar would allow the firm to build on its current offer for LNG stations in Europe.
Europe has now at least 462 LNG filling stations, according to Brussels-based association NGVA Europe.
NGVA Europe said earlier this year that the number of LNG filling stations rose from about 250 to 400 in 2020, marking a rise of 60 percent.
The association estimates that by 2030, there will be about 10,000 CNG and 2,000 LNG stations in Europe.
