Drive Systems will deploy LNG station in Belgium

The Dutch company LIQAL has been awarded a contract for turnkey realization of a refuelling station for LNG and CNG at a Texaco service station.

Last update:

With the realization of this new fuelling facility in Heverlee, Belgium, Drive Systems continues with its expansion of natural gas stations. According to the company, this will be the first highway site for LNG in North-West Europe.

The development is receiving funding from the EU through its Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program.

“This support was very welcome, as the number of vehicles on LNG or CNG is still low, for now. This initiative shows the commitment of the European Commission to roll out alternative fuel infrastructure along the main corridors” says Philippe Desrumaux, Director of Drive Systems.

Transport company Ninatrans, a Belgian provider of LNG powered transport since 2015, will be a launching customer for the station.

The station, which will be integrated into the existing Texaco full service station, will have an LNG storage capacity of 80,000 litres, a dispenser to supply LNG to trucks and two CNG dispensers to serve compressed natural gas-powered vehicles.
