The first manned ‘multi-fuel’ LNG filling station (LNG + diesel + AdBlue + red gas oil) is strategically located along the E17 highway, which is the main corridor between the Netherlands and France via the A16-E19 (Rotterdam-Antwerp) and A1-E17 (Paris-Lille-Ghent) highways. It is owned by Tankterminal nv.
The LNG station is equipped with a storage capacity of 73m³ and currently has the largest LNG buffer in the Benelux region for a total of four LNG dispensers. In addition to the LNG dispensers, it also has the option to offer LCNG in the future.
The new filling station at Tankterminal was built by LIQAL. It ensures unlimited shelf life of LNG in the storage tank. This is achieved via a BTU (Boil-off gas Treatment Unit or micro liquefaction), without the use of liquid nitrogen. Tankterminal can offer the end users both cold (3-4 bar) and saturated (7-8 bar) LNG in addition to the existing fuels for trucks, diesel, AdBlue and red gas oil.
This allows the ‘multi-fuel’ LNG station to provide all truck brands on the market (like Volvo, Iveco and Scania) with LNG under optimal conditions. LIQAL will remain responsible for the technical management and maintenance of the facility.
