Norwegian gas technology company Liquiline AS, based in Bergen, has entered into an agreement with energy provider E. ON for delivery of a newly developed public gas filling station for cars and taxis in Stockholm. The agreement has been signed with E.ON’s Swedish subsdiary, E.ON Gas Sverige AB, which builds and operates fueling stations and pipeline distribution for biogas and natural gas in Sweden.
The new station will be E. ON Gas Sweden’s first LCNG station (Liquefied and compressed natural gas), says Liquiline in its press release, where the gas will be supplied with either liquid natural gas (LNG) or liquefied biogas (LBG), for conversion to high pressure compressed gas. The station solution is newly developed by Liquiline, designed with requirements including high uptime and ease of operation.
Dag Lilletvedt, CEO and founder of Liquiline, explained that in addition to this being a technology and energy project, it is also an environmental project. That cars and taxis in Stockholm can be driving on biogas or natural gas instead of gasoline and diesel fuel contributes towards reduced emissions of CO2, NOx, SOx and particulates.
“The agreement … reaffirms our position as a specialist in transport and storage of liquefied gases. The agreement also comes with options for additional filling stations and maintenance service, and is thus an opportunity for further growth in both Sweden and other countries in which E.ON operates,” Lilletvedt said.
