A unit of Germany’s BayWa has launched a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station for trucks in Meerane.

This is the first LNG fueling station in the Zwickau district of Germany’s eastern state of Saxony, according to a BayWa statment.

BayWa Power Liquids launched the facility following an eight-month construction period.

The firm also plans to expand the LNG station in Meerane to include compressed natural gas (CNG).

This brings the total number of LNG filling stations in Saxony to six.

In total, BayWa now has twelve LNG filling stations in Germany, including in Wolfsburg, Nordlingen, Nuremberg, Karlsruhe, Regensburg, etc.

Moreover, BayWa said it plans to supply 100 percent bio-LNG from these stations for its trucks as well as for the company’s clients by mid-2024.

Germany hosts the largest number of LNG filling stations in Europe.

Data by Gmobility, previously known as NGVA Europe, shows that Germany has 169 LNG filing stations, while Italy has 140 such stations.

Europe in total hosts 671 LNG stations for trucks.
