LNG trucks can refuel at revamped facility in northeastern Netherlands
PitPoint.LNG has reopened its completely renovated LNG station in Zwolle, the Netherlands, featuring the latest innovations and with four times more storage capacity than before in order to meet the increasing demand for natural gas. This very first – and hence oldest – public LNG station in the Netherlands has now been transformed into the country’s newest LNG station.
The new facility, which will operate 24/7, has two LNG pumps and three staging areas for trucks. PitPoint.LNG has incorporated its latest innovations: extra-cold LNG specifically for Volvo trucks and digital pump display with fueling instructions in 11 languages especially for the international haulers who will come through this station. The new LNG pumps are located underneath a canopy to protect drivers from the elements while they refuel. To serve as many carriers as possible, multiple LNG fuel cards are accepted.
“We are very glad that we were able to make this station operational on schedule – despite the coronavirus crisis. Our customers made a major contribution to the end-result by testing the station together with us for further optimization. We are very pleased to have such loyal and enthusiastic customers, for whom we wish to express our appreciation,” said Joost de Ruijter, Sales & Business Development Manager at PitPoint.LNG.
More and more carriers are switching to LNG because of both environmental and financial advantages. The new station in Zwolle is the only one of its kind in the province Overijssel and is therefore considered to be an important station by an increasing number of carriers. Thanks to the larger LNG storage tank and an additional LNG pump, drivers no longer need to wait on each other but can refuel simultaneously.
PitPoint.LNG expects to meet carriers’ needs even better with this station upgrade, to help convince more carriers to make the switch to LNG.
