Gasum launches new LNG fueling station in Finland

Gasum said it has opened a new LNG and CNG fueling station for vehicles in the Kivisto district of Vantaa, Finland.

The station offers liquefied and compressed gas for the needs of heavy- and light-duty transport vehicles and passenger cars, according to a Gasum statement issued on Thursday.

Earlier this year, Gasum said it would open this facility in late summer. This is the fifth gas filling station Vantaa.

Gasum created the station’s visual image in cooperation with LAB University of Applied Sciences and visual artist Katja Tsykarev.

The EU’s Connecting Europe Facility supported the construction of the LNG filling station in Vantaa.

Gasum said the new station would allow more and more logistics companies serving the Finnish trade to switch to using gas.

Logistics and transport companies play a “key role” in cutting road traffic emissions in Finland, according to the firm.

They operate long distances and consume “significant amount” of energy compared to smaller vehicle segments.

Biogas accounts for more than 95 percent of the road traffic gas sold by Gasum to all vehicle segments. The lifecycle emissions of biogas are as much as 90 percent less than traditional fossil fuels, it said.
