The Group has achieved the milestone on January 12 in Montoir-de-Bretagne commune, on the western coast of France. The GDF SUEZ LNG truck loading activity started in 2013 in Europe and ramped up progressively to reach this point.
GDF Suez is operating LNG truck loadings in Europe from three terminals (Montoir-de-Bretagne and Fos Tonkin in France and Zeebrugge in Belgium) and from the Everett terminal in Boston, USA. The Group intends to extend its loading activity to the Isle of Grain terminal in the UK, starting in the summer 2015.
The LNG is sold at the terminal gate. After being loaded into the trucks, the LNG is transported to industrial customers that are not connected to the natural gas grid.
In Europe, more than 10 companies are currently using the company’s loading services, among which LNGeneration and LNG Solutions, subsidiaries of the Group. LNGeneration sells LNG to off-grid customers in Europe and LNG Solutions markets LNG as a fuel and develops LNG filling stations infrastructures for trucks and bunkering facilities for ships in the Netherlands.
