Snam, OrangeGas to build bio-LCNG refueling station in Germany

A unit of Italian energy firm Snam has joined forces with Dutch fuel provider OrangeGas to develop their first bio-LCNG refueling station in Paderborn, Germany.

According to a joint statement, this agreement is part of a larger cooperation project between the two companies in the sustainable mobility field.

Under the deal, Snam4Mobility will build the station by the end of the year, while OrangeGas will act as operator within its network of service stations.

The station would provide both liquefied and compressed biomethane to power sustainable mobility of both light- and heavy-duty transports in Germany, it said.

Wijtze Bakker, head of network development Europe at OrangeGas, said the partners would launch four new bio-LCNG stations in Germany this year, with the aim of opening a total of twenty stations in the next three years.

Also, the construction of the new German bio-LCNG stations will help create an OrangeGas’ network of clean fuel stations in Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands.

The Dutch firm offers 100 percent of bio-CNG at all its CNG stations, while as of 2023, it plans to only offer 100 percent of bio-LNG at its LNG stations as well.

Alessio Torelli, chief executive officer of Snam4Mobility, added the two companies were “launching an important partnership to help decarbonize light and heavy transports in Germany.”
