LNG24 is also involved in the development of a number of LNG fueling sites at the following cities: Duiven, Veghel, Venlo, Roosendaal, Rotterdam, Rijnsburg, Pijnacker and Amsterdam.
According to LNG24 general manager Antwan van Echtelt, about 50 filling stations are needed to be set in five years in the Netherlands. At the same time, he expects that 1,000-1,500 trucks will run on liquefied natural gas in the same period. A fueling site is profitable only with a customer base of 30 to 50 LNG trucks, the executive said.
The licensing process is currently the biggest bottleneck for this business. “Before you can actually start with the construction of a filling station, there is still about 1 to 1.5 years over. So we immediately requested permits at various locations,” Van Echtelt explained.
