Total Nederland and PitPoint.LNG have started construction of a new multiple-energy truck station at the A1 business park in Deventer, the Netherlands. Alongside the traditional fuels on offer, this filling station will at first be equipped with LNG. This is part of Total’s objective to grow in low carbon solutions that helps customers to reduce their CO2 emissions.
The facility, 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 meters 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. A full tank from the Deventer site is enough to reach every corner of Germany.
Open 24/7, the multiple-energy station will feature two LNG dispensers allowing trucks to fill up at the same time. The most recent LNG innovations are also included: extra cold LNG especially for Volvo trucks and a digital display with LNG filling information in 11 languages so that drivers from different countries can follow the instructions. Finally, the new site 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.
Moreover, this will be the first PitPoint.LNG’s facility at a TOTAL station in the Netherlands. As part of TOTAL’s multiple-energy station, where LNG, diesel and AdBlue® will be offered, the design is also leaving room for the potential of dispensing hydrogen in the future.
“This project fulfils our objective to grow in low carbon solutions. The transportation sector really needs to become cleaner. We see LNG as the right transition fuel for heavy road transport and it can be used now to start reducing CO2 emissions. Our TOTAL Card already allows truck drivers to fill up at four different LNG locations in the Netherlands. We’re proud that – together with PitPoint.LNG – we will soon be able to offer cleaner fuel for road transport ourselves as well. That’s how we can build a cleaner future for everyone,” said Marja Versleijen, Director of Mobility & New Energies at Total Nederland.
