Waterside Station in Holland Can Fuel Natural Gas Barges Too
Cryonorm Systems is spreading the word about a liquefied natural gas fueling station in The Netherlands that serves a fleet of nine LNG-fueled trucks operated by the logistics provider Royal Rotra – and can provide fuel for future natural gas-powered barges on the local inland waterway.
Rotra expects to log a million kilometers on LNG fuel this year, Cryonorm says – upwards of 621,000 miles.
The “multimodal transport chain” facility is adjacent to the new Rotra container terminal in Doesburg, east of Arnhem.

“The construction of the terminal is in its last phase and will be officially opened in April,” Cryonorm says. The LNG fueling station, which was built with European Union support via the TEN-T Program, will be formally opened at that time.
Rotra said this past autumn that it was adding four LNG trucks to an existing fleet of five. They are Scania P340-chassis vehicle with two tanks with capacity for 350 liters of fuel – 92 gallons.
