The new natural gas filling station, built and operated by Gasum, is located in Roves industrial area at Piirturinväylä 1, in Seinäjoki. Its central location supports both heavy-duty vehicles and cars in western Finland and also towards destinations in northern Finland by offering inexpensive and environmentally friendly biogas and natural gas. The adoption of natural gas as vehicle fuel is growing considerably in Finland and plays an important role in the achievement of national and international emission reduction targets.
“The growing natural gas filling station network offers more and more consumers and businesses the opportunity to reduce their transport emissions. I believe that the new station will result in more and more transport companies operating in South Ostrobothnia introducing environmentally friendly natural gas vehicles in their fleet,” saod Jani Arala, Senior Sales Manager, Traffic, Gasum.
“As forerunners in the logistics sector, we want to be leading the way for cleaner transport and utilize low-emission fuel alternatives as soon as they become available. The use of LNG will reduce our company’s emissions while at the same time the competitive price of the fuel will provide us with a valuable competitive advantage. Our customers are also increasingly interested in low-emission fuel alternatives,” said Managing Director Tero Mattila from Huhtala Logistics Oy.
“The new filling station improves the conditions for natural gas use in the Seinäjoki area and will increase the demand for natural gas cars. NGV models can be found in all of the most popular car makes, such as Audi, Seat, Škoda and Volkswagen. We’re happy to be able to provide a diverse service to those interested in running their car on natural gas,” added Managing Director Jyrki Viitala from Käyttöauto, a Seinäjoki car dealer selling natural gas models.
