Capacity to Fuel Approximately 200 Trucks Per Day

Shell has opened its third liquefied natural gas fueling facility for trucks in The Netherlands. The new station has a capacity of 70,000 liters of LNG, nearly 18,500 gallons, Shell says, “enough to fuel around 200 trucks per day.”

Shell’s new LNG truck fueling station in Amsterdam ‘is located in the western port area, a location with significant turnover from ships to trucks that distribute goods into the city.’

Shell previously opened LNG stations in Rotterdam (F&F, March 19) and subsequently in Waalwijk.

“We expect LNG will form a bigger part of the sustainable transport fuel mix in the future,” Shell downstream LNG GM Lauran Wetemans says in the Amsterdam station announcement.

The Amsterdam LNG outlet is Shell's third for trucks in The Netherlands.

“Shell continues to work together with engine manufacturers, customers and policy makers to strengthen the business case for the use of LNG fuel in transport,” he said. “As customer demand grows, we plan to open additional LNG sites in the Netherlands.”

“We believe LNG is a viable fuel option for heavy-duty truck fleet owners, today,” said euroShell GM Giorgio Delpiano.

Shell said that it expects to have access to product from the new Gate (Gas Access to Europe) LNG import terminal in Rotterdam as of October 1.
