PitPoint.LNG has started construction of a new LNG-station at the new A1 business park in Deventer, the Netherlands.
The LNG-station, planned to be operational December 2020, will be built on the grounds of the brand-new A1 business park in Deventer, which is within 500 metres of the A1 motorway, via exit 24. This is an advantageous location for road transportation in the Netherlands and cross-border transport heading to Germany.
The new station will be open 24/7. There will be two LNG-pumps allowing trucks to fill up at the same time. The most recent LNG innovations are included: extra cold LNG especially for Volvo trucks and a digital display with LNG filling instructions in 11 languages so that drivers from many different countries can follow the instructions. Finally, the new TOTAL multiple-energy station is located next to a secured truck parking lot that also gives access to showers and Wi-Fi, making this station a full-service stop.
MORE AND MORE TRANSPORTERS ARE SWITCHING TO LNG
Increasingly, Dutch transport companies are making the switch from diesel to LNG. With cleaner combustion and reduced CO2 emissions, LNG is the best alternative to diesel for heavy road transport at this point in time. In addition to the environmental benefits, transport companies geared to Germany also benefit from financial advantages: trucks driving on LNG in Germany are free of toll until 31 December 2023. That’s a difference of 18.7 cents per kilometer. The new LNG station by TOTAL and PitPoint.LNG is also a response to this development. A full tank from the A1 station at Deventer is enough to reach every corner of Germany.
