Rolande launches another German LNG station

Dutch Rolande has opened another LNG filling station for vehicles in Germany as it works on establishing a nationwide network in the country.

The firm said it opened the new station on January 25 at gates of the city of Dortmund.

Moreover, the station features two LNG pumps and a capacity to guarantee the quick fuelling of up to 150 vehicles per day, it said.

Rolande says its next LNG station in Lubeck is already in the works. Further locations, among others, in Grasdorf, Zeisar and Hamburg are planned for this year.

The firm operates exclusively public filling stations that can be used by any customer.

While only four LNG filling stations operated in Germany overall in 2019, this figure increased to 43 by December 2020, according to Rolande.

In addition, this figure should double by the end of 2021, Rolande says.

The market for LNG as a truck fuel is growing strongly in Germany but also the Netherlands, as owners look to slash emissions and due to tax schemes and a road tax exemption for LNG-powered trucks until the end of 2023

This makes for savings of up to 18.7 cents in road tolls per driven kilometre for the operators, Rolande said.
