Two new LNG stations, owned by PitPoint.LNG, were recently opened in the Netherlands. These facilities are situated at DCB-owned TruckEasy filling stations and located at: Peuldreef 2 (2635 BX) in Den Hoorn; and Erik de Rodeweg 3 (5975 WD) Trade Port North, Greenportlane in Sevenum/Venlo. In addition to LNG, these new locations will also offer high-calorific CNG.
The LNG filling station in Den Hoorn is situated in the heart of the Netherlands, only a few meters from the A4, and is easy to get to from Delft, The Hague and Rotterdam. The location in Sevenum/Venlo is also easily accessible, with direct access to the A67 and A73, and is ideally located for trucks driving to the hubs for the Rotterdam and Antwerp ports and Central Europe.
In July 2017, DCB Energy and PitPoint.LNG signed a contract for the realization of three new LNG filling stations. Two of these locations are now operational, and the third one in Roosendaal will open this spring. With Den Hoorn and Sevenum/Venlo included, there are now 24 LNG stations in total in the Netherlands, well-spread across the country. LNG has been used as fuel for heavy road transport in the Netherlands for years and gains popularity every year.
“The new LNG trucks can do around 1500 km on a full tank. With the current network of LNG filling stations at strategic locations, we pretty much have country-wide coverage,” said Jan Willem Drijver, managing director PitPoint.LNG. “We are currently working on the development and operation of LNG locations in Belgium and Germany, which will make it possible to use our network in these countries too. This way, carriers and their clients are no longer prevented from investing in clean transport,” added Drijver.
