Uniper’s Liqvis launches 13th German LNG station

Uniper’s unit Liqvis has launched its 13th LNG fueling station in Germany to cater to the increasing demand for the fuel in road transport.

The new LNG filling station is located on the A7 motorway, exit Fulda-Nord, according to a Liqvis statement.

This station in Fulda complements the firm’s growing LNG network in Germany but also in France.

It was built in cooperation with Dutch cryogenic tech firm Cryonorm.

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

According to its website, Liqvis has 13 operational LNG filling stations in Germany and three in France. Prior to this facility, it launched a station near Alsfeld.

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

Liqvis 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, previously known as NGVA Europe, shows Germany has 167 LNG filing stations ,while Italy has 140 such stations. Europe in total hosts 668 LNG stations for trucks.
