AMSTERDAM: Shell has opened its first LNG fuelling station in Rotterdam Waalhaven, the Netherlands, for trucks operating in Europe.
The station is located near the A15, which is a major route for lorries travelling to Belgium, France, and the German Ruhr area.
The new station has a capacity of 70 000 litres of LNG, and can provide some 170 trucks with LNG on a daily basis. Transport companies SUEZ Environnement NL (formerly SITA NL), Vos Logistics and ABS Trucking are among the first customers to use the station.
It’s great to see customers now fill their trucks with LNG at the Shell gas station, where customers previously could refuel all Fuel Save Diesel and GTL Fuel,” commented Giorgio Delpiano, General Manager Commercial Fleet. “We are proud to take the lead in the development of safe and cost efficient LNG fuel technology.”
