Finnish energy company Gasum announced its plan to expand its filling station network in the Nordics.

“We're aiming to build around 20 filling stations for HDVs in Sweden and Finland by the end of the year and to build a total of 50 new filling stations in the Nordics by the early 2020s,” said Mikael Antonsson, Director, Traffic, Gasum Sweden.

Gasum hopes to increase the availability of gas and to allow more fleet owners to choose low-emission LNG and LBG as a fuel.

Today Gasum has a network of around 40 gas filling stations in Finland and Sweden, of which eleven LNG and LBG stations also serve the long-haul HDV segment. In addition, other operators are expanding the filling station network in Europe and, according to NGVA Europe, there are now about 218 HDV filling stations in operation, and around 6,000 LNG trucks across Europe.

Road transport emissions is a highly discussed issue as the European Union has set ambitious emission targets for HDVs. The legislation dictates that emissions of new HDVs need to be reduced by 15% by 2025 and by 30% by 2030 compared to 2019.
