Shell adds another German LNG station

Energy giant Shell has launched its fifth LNG retail station for heavy-duty road transport sector in Germany.

The new Kirchheim unter Teck station is the first for Shell in Baden-Württemberg in southwest Germany.

It has a capacity to fill up to 150 LNG-powered trucks per day, according to Shell’s German unit.

The LNG giant is planning to develop its station network to 35-40 facilities by 2022 as part of an initiative to slash emissions.

In addition to building filling stations, Shell also aims to boost the use of bio-LNG.

In that regard, the firm announced plans to construct a small biomethane liquefaction plant at its Godorf refinery near Cologne.

The plant will have a capacity of about 100,000 tons, supplying Shell’s network of LNG stations by trucks.

Besides Germany, Shell is building a network of LNG stations in Europe as part of the BioLNG EuroNet consortium.

The consortium will build a pan-European network of 39 LNG refueling sites in Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Spain.

These stations will be deployed on existing diesel sites, on or near key locations on main TransEuropean Transport Network nodes and corridors.
