Duo join forces on new LNG filling station for Italy’s Socogas

Dutch small-scale LNG tech firm Liqal said it has joined forces with Italian EPC and service company Sgig to install a new LNG fueling system for Socogas in the Parma region.

The San Michele Campagna site, operated by Italy’s Eni, is located in Fidenza at the exit of the A1 motorway, according to Liqal.

Moreover, the integration of the LNG fueling facility would strengthen the offering for LNG vehicles at this service station on the busy route between Milan and Bologna, the firm said.

Sgig has built 15 LNG stations in Italy, and it took care of turnkey project supply on this latest project. Liqal supplied the LNG technology.

In addition, the duo will also deliver remote performance management and local aftercare to ensure optimum station availability for Socogas.

The Fidenza site has a 60-cbm LNG storage tank that provides fuel to two dispensers and a CNG dispenser with two-sided fueling possibility, Liqal said.

Italy has about 100 LNG filling stations throughout the country, one of the biggest networks in Europe, with projections to grow to 200 stations over the next two years.

With more than 3,000 registered LNG vehicles, Italy has “embraced the clear environmental benefits of LNG, and the government offers levies to support the transition away from diesel and other polluting transport fuels,” the statement said.
