Uniper’s Liqvis adds new LNG station in Germany

Uniper’s unit Liqvis has launched a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station for vehicles in Germany.

The new LNG filling station is located in Pfalzfeld, on the A 61 Autobahn, according to a Liqvis statement.

This station located west from Frankfurt complements the firm’s growing LNG network in Germany.

This is the company’s 15th LNG station in Germany and follows the opening of the LNG filling station in Lederhose, Thüringen in November 2023.

In January 2022, Liqvis and Dutch cryogenic tech firm Cryonorm signed a deal to build up to 16 new LNG filling stations.

Last year, Liqvis also signed a deal with compatriot revis bioenergy to buy bio-LNG from the latter from mid-2023.

Liqvis said at the time it plans to offer bio-LNG as an alternative fuel for heavy duty transport at its LNG filling stations in Germany from the summer of 2023 and to gradually convert its entire supply portfolio to 100 percent bio-LNG.

The market for LNG as a truck fuel is growing in Germany and is the largest in Europe, as owners look to slash emissions but also a road tax exemption for such vehicles.

Data by Gmobility shows Germany has 183 LNG filing stations, while Italy has 148 such stations. Europe in total hosts 714 LNG stations for trucks.

Last year, European network of LNG fueling stations for vehicles reached 700 stations.
