Gasum kicks off work on new LNG station in Finland

Finnish state-owned energy firm Gasum has started building a new LNG and CNG filling station in Finnish Lapland’s biggest city Rovaniemi.

According to a statement by Gasum, the station in Rovaniemi is an “important addition” in the expansion of Gasum’s gas distribution network for road transportation in Northern Finland and in particular in Lapland.

Stations in Northern Finland enable low-emission transports by gas-powered trucks for an increasing number of logistics companies, it said.

The Rovaniemi station will sell both liquefied and compressed gas, which means it will serve heavy-duty traffic and passenger cars.

Gasum expects to open this station in early summer 2024.

On completion, the Rovaniemi station will be the world’s northernmost filling station selling liquefied gas, the company claims.

Gasum recently opened its northernmost filling station to date in Kemi.

The company said that biogas accounts for almost 100 percent of the gas it sells to all vehicle segments in Finland.

According to the firm, the lifecycle emissions of biogas are 90 percent lower on average compared to traditional fossil fuels.

Gasum’s strategic goal is to bring 7 TWh of renewable gas yearly to the Nordic market by 2027.
