Uniper’s Liqvis continues to expand its network of LNG filling stations for trucks in order to cater to the increasing demand for the fuel in Germany.
The new LNG filling station is located in the central German city of Magdeburg, according to a Liqvis statement on Monday.
Liqvis says this filling station complements the firm’s growing LNG network in Germany but also in France.
It is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the EU and built in cooperation with Dutch cryogenic tech firm Cryonorm.
According to its website, Liqvis now has eight operational LNG filling stations in Germany and two in France. Prior to this facility, it launched a filling station near the western German city of Bonn.
The market for LNG as a truck fuel is growing rapidly in Germany as owners look to slash emissions but also a road tax exemption for such vehicles until the end of 2023.
Liqvis and Cryonorm recently signed a deal for up to 16 new LNG filling stations.
The new contract “Mercury II” builds on the previous “Mercury I” EPC contract signed in 2018. This deal covered 16 LNG stations.
