GasNet launches fourth Czech LNG fueling station

Natural gas distributor GasNet has launched its fourth LNG fueling station for trucks in the Czech Republic.

The mobile LNG station is located in the South Bohemian town of Kaplice and is the first in the region, according to GasNet.

Earlier this year, GasNet added two new LNG fueling stations in Kosmonosy, close to Prague, and in Nyrany, Pilsen.

The firm says it operates four of total five LNG fueling stations in the Czech Republic and plans to build more due to growing demand for LNG as fuel in the transport sector.

These stations will also be able to supply bio-LNG in the future.

According to GasNet, there are currently 135 registered LNG-powered trucks in the Czech Republic.

The firm expects that the country would need at least 30 LNG fueling stations for trucks by 2030.

GasNet also noted that there are now more than 600 LNG fueling stations in Europe.

European network of LNG fueling stations continues to grow despite very high prices and Europe now has 615 LNG stations, according to NGVA Europe.

Germany continues to host the highest amount of LNG stations for trucks with 153 stations, followed by Italy with 130.

Moreover, Spain has 90 LNG filling stations, France 70, the Netherlands 33, Sweden 28, Belgium 24, Finland 15, and the UK 14, the data shows.
