Finnish state-owned energy firm and LNG supplier, Gasum, has launched a new LNG and CNG fueling station in Sweden.
With the new station in Lulea, Gasum can now offer both compressed and liquefied gas to transport companies operating locally in the northernmost part of Sweden.
This station is Gasum’s second station built in cooperation with Sandahls Logistik, according to a statement issued on Tuesday.
The two firms opened the first filling station in Vargarda, in western Sweden.
Gasum now has 23 liquefied gas filling stations across Sweden and a total of more than 50 across the Nordics.
The company’s partners operate some of these filling stations, it said.
As the infrastructure expands, Gasum expects the number of gas-powered vehicles to continue to increase on Swedish roads.
“Several” companies have already signaled that an expansion of the gas filling station network allows for completely new possibilities, such as switching over to lower emissions transports in northern Sweden,” the firm said.
In addition, the new station means that some logistics companies have already redirected some of their traffic from other parts of Sweden to Lulea, it said.
