Liquind is continuing to build a nationwide network of LNG filling stations for trucks in Germany to meet a growing demand for the fuel in the transport industry.
The Berlin-based firm backed by Switzerland-based Energy 360 ° said it has opened a new LNG filling station in Schüttorf, near the Dutch border.
The station features one dispenser and a 60-cbm LNG tank.
Liquind says it has implemented the 1 million euro ($1.21 million) project together with the local partner, Hermann Eissing Mineralöl, and with the support of the State of Lower Saxony and the European Union.
In addition, Dutch cryogenic tech firm Cryonorm built the facility.
Next LNG stations will go online in Hamburg-West and Dummerstorf, according to Liquind.
The firm is currently developing twenty-three LNG truck filling stations in Germany.
Besides truck filling stations, Liquind plans to launch two LNG bunkering stations for inland vessels to cater to an increasing demand for cleaner fuels in Germany.
The stations in Mannheim and Duisburg should start serving vessels working on the Rhine in the summer.
