Dutch firm Rolande has opened its seventh liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station for trucks in Germany.
The fueling station in Ziesar near Berlin has two LNG pumps and is situated on a strategically important transport corridor for east-west and north-south goods traffic, covering the North Sea and Baltic Sea regions, according to a statement by Rolande.
As with its other locations, the LNG and bio-LNG provider has leased the premises from European provider of fuel cards and fuels, IDS.
Rolande is a strategic partner for clients with their own fleets and for freight forwarders and transport companies looking to switch to bio-LNG.
With the opening of the fueling station in Ziesar, Rolande is forging ahead with the development of a transnational LNG network in Europe.
Rolande said it aims to boost the availability of LNG and bio-LNG for transport companies by maintaining its growth trajectory and continuously investing in fueling stations in these countries.
According to data by Gmobility, there are currently 182 LNG stations in Germany and 699 stations in Europe.
Germany hosts the largest number of station, followed by Italy with 143 stations, the data shows.
