NGVA Europe and other advocates of natural gas as a transportation fuel in Europe are promoting the new LNG 4 Trucks & Ships workshop taking place September 19-21 at the Hotel Casa 400 in Amsterdam.
The gathering will be hosted by Ballast Nedam (which has a new subsidiary called LNG24; F&F, April 9), and organized by The GVR/NGV Communications Group.
Emerson Micro Motion is an early sponsor.
Organizers expect that hundreds of LNG and dual fuel on-road vehicles and ships will enter Dutch service soon. As many as 10,000 heavy duty vehicles supported by some five dozen fueling facilities in the 2017-2022 timeframe.
“A third of truckers could be using liquefied natural gas in just over a decade,” said NGVA Europe GM Manuel Lage said in a release.
Attendees can expect further details on Holland’s new “Green Deal” plan to deploy at least 500 heavy duty trucks, 50 barges, and 50 ships on LNG.
LNG 4 Trucks & Ships will include a technical tour to LNG24’s new LNG filling station in Zwolle, and the meeting will also feature a natural gas boat tour of the Amsterdam canals.
