Dutch Rolande continues to grow network of LNG filling stations

Rolande is looking to add up to 14 new LNG filling stations for trucks to its network in Europe, while it continues to work on a bio-LNG production plant in the northern Dutch city of Leeuwarden.

The LNG firm operates a network of 20 filling stations, including 13 in the Netherlands but also Belgium, Germany, and France.

Besides these facilities, it aims to add 12-14 LNG stations for trucks, the firm said in a statement this week.

Dutch bio-LNG plant

The Dutch firm has earlier this year joined forces with project developer D4. on a bio-LNG production plant in Leeuwarden.

Rolande said in the statement it would start supplying bio-LNG for road transport produced at the plant this year.

The installation will produce about 9.2 kilotons of bio-LNG annually.

“100 percent bio-LNG”

Jolon van der Schuit, CEO of Rolande, said that bio-LNG currently accounts for about 25 percent of the company’s total supplies.

“When the bio-LNG factory opens, it could increase up to 50 percent. In five years, we want to offer 100 percent bio-LNG,” he said.

Besides the bio-LNG plans in the Netherlands, Rolande is buying bio-LNG from Scandinavian Biogas.

In October, the two firms signed a new deal for deliveries of bio-LNG, totaling about 90 GWh of bio-LNG per year.

Sweden-based Scandinavian Biogas said the volume of this new agreement replaced a previously signed deal.

Also, deliveries will start in 2022 from Scandinavian Biogas’ facilities in Sweden and Norway for primarily supply to the Dutch and German market.
