Rolande opens LNG station in Germany’s Duisburg

Dutch Rolande has recently opened an LNG filling station for vehicles in Germany’s Port of Duisburg as it looks to establish a nationwide station network in the country.

The firm opened the new station in cooperation with the port owner and operator Duisburger Hafen. The German port is looking to boost the use of LNG as fuel in order to reduce emissions.

The facility in Duisburg features two LNG pumps with a daily capacity of up to 150 vehicles.

Additionally, the filling station is part of the Connect2LNG project that is financed by the CEF programme of the European Commission. The aim of the project is the development of a European LNG fueling network by commissioning five stations in Germany and France.

Following the opening of the first Rolande LNG filling station in Ulm, the Duisburg location is “an important milestone” for Rolande as it looks to add more stations in Germany, the firm says.

Rolande plans to open more stations by the end of this year and in early 2021 in Dortmund, Grasdorf, Lübeck, Ziesar and Hamburg.

Furthermore, each of these filling stations will also be capable of distributing bio-LNG.
