LIQAL expands footprint in German LNG-fueling market
Dutch LNG technology developer LIQAL has expanded its reach into the German market with its partnership with Flüssiggas-Anlagen.
The goal of this partnership with the German EPC company is to facilitate the supply of turnkey, LNG refueling stations, along with the flexibility of local maintenance for station operators throughout Germany.
LIQAL and FAS aim to support the transition to LNG and bio-LNG across Europe and to contribute to a greener and cleaner transport sector.
The market for LNG as a transport fuel is growing strongly in Germany, thanks in part to stable tax schemes and a road tax exemption for LNG powered trucks until the end of 2023, LIQAL said in its statement.
Based in Salzgitter in Lower Saxony, Germany, FAS provides project and permit preparations, and installation and servicing solutions for LNG filling stations.
The partnership meets LIQAL’s own objectives to expand its reach across new territories in Europe and beyond.
LIQAL’s CEO Jorg Raven said that by working in collaboration with local partners throughout Europe, the company can contribute faster to the ultimate goal of switching from polluting diesel to cost-effective LNG and bio-LNG, to help meet Europe’s climate goal targets.
The joint marketing and development of LNG fuelling systems in Germany is key to this new partnership. It highlights the importance of cross-border cooperation to deliver and expand the network of LNG refueling stations for heavy road transport operators and truck drivers.
LIQAL will have its first physical presence in the German market at the beginning of 2021, through the delivery of several LNG filling station projects that are currently in production.
As Germany scales up to respond to LNG demand and adapt to the energy transformation, both companies are looking forward to a successful and fruitful collaboration.
