Q8 opens Denmark’s first LNG truck filling station

Q8 Danmark has opened Denmark’s first filling station for trucks running on liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The station owner is a joint venture of Sweden’s OK ekonomisk förening (OK Economic Association) and Kuwait Petroleum International.

Makeen Energy said in a statement that Q8 launched the new facility on Thursday.

Denmark-based KC LNG, Kosan Crisplant’s division under Makeen Energy, built the station with the help of Dutch small-scale LNG tech firm Liqal.

To remind, Q8 said in March it had expected to open the facility by the end of 2021

Located at Q8’s IDS station in the southern Danish town of Padborg, at the border with Germany, the facility will initially offer LNG for trucks, but future plans also include liquefied biogas, according to Q8.

Padborg is one of Europe’s busiest transport centers, with over 7,000 trucks passing through daily. This would help make the facility a hub for transporting goods between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe, Q8 said.

With this move, Q8 says it offers its customers an alternative to shy away from diesel to a “greener” fuel such as LNG.

The new station in Padborg makes part of a wider network as another Kuwait Petroleum subsidiary, IDS-Q8, is building a network of LNG filling stations in Europe.
