PitPoint.LNG has reopened its renovated LNG station in Zwolle, the Netherlands.
The station has four times more LNG storage capacity than before in order to meet the increasing demand for LNG.
Kleefstraat 7 in Zwolle saw a flurry of reconstruction activities in recent months. This very first – and hence oldest – public LNG station in the Netherlands has now been transformed into the country’s newest LNG station.
The new station will operate 24/7, has two LNG pumps and three staging areas for trucks that run on LNG.
The LNG station in Zwolle is the only one of its kind in the province Overijssel and is therefore considered to be an important station by an increasing number of carriers. Thanks to the larger LNG storage tank and an additional LNG pump, drivers no longer need to wait on each other but can refuel simultaneously. Speed and reliability of an LNG refuelling station is crucial, and even decisive, for many carriers in their decision to use LNG. PitPoint.LNG expects to meet carriers’ needs even better with this station upgrade, to help convince more carriers to make the switch to LNG.
Joost de Ruijter, Sales & Business Development Manager at PitPoint.LNG, said: “We are very glad that we were able to make this station operational on schedule – despite the coronavirus crisis. Our customers made a major contribution to the end-result by testing the station together with us for further optimisation. We are very pleased to have such loyal and enthusiastic customers, for whom we wish to express our appreciation. That’s why I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the drivers who helped us and gave us valuable feedback!”
