Gasum opened its sixth gas filling station in Östersund last week. The new station, now Sweden’s most northern, serves both heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) and passenger cars by offering biogas and natural gas, according to a press release.

The first gas filling station for long haul transportation in Norrland is now open in Östersund, and offers liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) for Heavy Duty Vehicles. By expanding the filling station network in Sweden, Gasum is enabling gas-fuelled long-distance transport from the southern regions of the country to the north. In addition to HDVs, the station also serves passenger cars, delivery vehicles and buses with compressed gas, CNG.

“The opening of Östersund’s filling station and the development of several other upcoming stations in southern Sweden means that, soon, HDVs will be able to drive across Sweden with low-emission fuel. This station is a good example how the same infrastructure can serve different vehicle segments in regional transport.” says Mikael Antonsson, Director Traffic Sweden, Gasum.

At the moment, Gasum is investing in expanding its gas filling station network in the Nordics. By the early 2020s, the company is aiming to create a network of 50 new HDV gas filling stations in Finland, Sweden and Norway. In addition to the new station in Östersund, the stations that are already operational in Sweden can be found in Västerås, Norrköping, Örebro, Jönköping and Karlstad.
