To conduct the study and validate the results of GARnet, there is a plan to install seven LNG stations, four conventional and three mobile, which will be used to test the technology potential as a way to reach its deployment in Europe. In addition, the integration of communication technologies for the provision of large volumes of LNG will be evaluated, in order to allow an adequate network management.
The refueling stations will be located in some of the main European corridors of freight transportation at a suitable distance, so that LNG-powered trucks may operate without supply problems. This project is part of the European Union targets for road transport, and has been designed to promote and harmonize safer, more efficient and less polluting services. In this context, LNG stands as a firm alternative aimed at reducing transport emissions.
