The alderman of Roosendaal René van Ginderen and the director of Transport Van Overveld (TVO) Gert van Overveld officially opened the latest LNG filling station in the Netherlands, in Roosendaal. PitPoint.LNG’s station is closely located to the A17, in the center of the Dutch Logistics Hotspot number 1 of 2018, West-Brabant. It is the 25th Dutch LNG station. This fuel is gaining ground in the Dutch national and international road transport sector as an alternative energy to diesel.
René van Ginderen said: “The West-Brabant region is recently called the number 1 hotspot of the Netherlands. For us logistics is a priority. The addition of the new LNG filling station in Roosendaal fits in nicely into this. Moreover, it fits within the ambitions of the municipal council to lead the way in the energy transition in the region.”
Gert van Overveld also commented: “Since 1988, it has been all about speed, quality and continuity of our business. That includes efforts to make transport better and cleaner as far as we are concerned. LNG is in many ways a smart alternative to diesel: clean, affordable and available throughout the Netherlands and in the countries around us. In addition, the new LNG trucks are as good as the diesel trucks in comfort, horsepower, traction and range.”
Joost de Ruijter, Sales Manager Automotive PitPoint.LNG, said: “In the past six months PitPoint.LNG has opened three new LNG filling stations: in Den Hoorn, Venlo/Sevenum and now in Roosendaal. With this number of LNG stations, the Netherlands is leading the way in Europe. However, you can also see in other European countries that the LNG network of filling stations is growing steadily. With the favorable price ratio and the large supply of trucks, LNG is becoming a logical alternative for national and international transport.”
