Finish energy company Gasum has opened its second gas filling station for heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) in Sweden.

Gasum said on Tuesday that the filling station, located in Norrköping, was a part of the company’s plan to build a Nordic network of 50 LNG stations for heavy-duty vehicles in high traffic areas by early 2020s.

The station is located close to the E4 route, which makes it easy for HDVs to access it and refuel. There, customers can fuel their HDVs with liquefied natural gas as well as liquefied biogas (LBG).

The first filling station in Sweden was opened in Västerås in May, and in Finland there are already six stations, the last two opened recently in Oulu. Altogether, the company has more than 30 gas filling stations for different vehicle segments in Sweden and Finland.

The liquefied gas station network will offer LNG and LBG to logistic companies and is seen as a necessity in the transition to a cleaner future as it offers cleaner fuels for HDVs.

Gasum added that it would expand its network with LNG/LBG stations in Jönköping and Örebro at the end of the summer, followed by more stations later in the year.
