PitPoint opens rebuilt Zwolle LNG fueling station
Dutch company PitPoint said it has reopened the liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station in Zwolle.
The facility has undergone a complete renovation, the company said in its statement. The station now has four times more LNG storage capacity than it had previously as a response to the increasing demand.
To remind, the Zwolle LNG facility is the first public station in the Netherlands, PitPoint said.
The new station will operate 24/7, has two LNG pumps and three staging areas for trucks that run on LNG.
PitPoint added that more and more carriers are switching to LNG because of both environmental and financial advantages.
The Zwolle LNG station is the only one of its kind in the province Overijssel. Therefore, it is 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, the statement reads.
Commenting on the rebuild process, Joost de Ruijter, sales & business development manager at PitPoint.LNG, said, “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 optimisation.”
