Gasum launches new LNG station in Sweden

Finnish state-owned energy firm and LNG supplier, Gasum, has launched a new LNG fueling station for trucks in Sweden.

According to a statement by Gasum, the firm joined forces with logistics company Alwex Transport to develop the station in Vaxjo, south central Sweden.

The station will officially open on July 3 and offers LNG and bio-LNG.

Gasum can now provide both compressed and liquefied gas to transport companies operating across Sweden, from the northernmost parts to the southern regions, it said.

The company’s ownership of the entire value chain allow it to take “another significant leap” in extend the corridor of stations.

Gasum said that the Vaxjö station is the company’s 22nd filling station in Sweden, bringing the total number across the Nordics to over 50.

The company’s partners operate some of these stations.

As the gas filling station infrastructure continues to expand into new areas, an increasing number of gas-powered heavy-duty vehicles are appearing on Swedish roads.

There are almost 1,000 heavy-duty vehicles driving on liquefied gas today in Sweden, and together with the heavy-duty vehicles that run on compressed gas, there are more than 2,200, Gasum said.
