SGIG, leading Italian EPC and service company for gas stations, has teamed up with Dutch LNG technology specialists LIQAL to install a new LNG fuelling system for Socogas in the Parma region. The San Michele Campagna site, operated by Eni, is located in Fidenza at the exit of the A1 motorway. 

The integration of the LNG fuelling facility will strengthen the offering for LNG vehicles at this modern service station on the busy route between Milan and Bologna. 

Italy was an early LNG adopter in Europe and has one of the biggest networks of 100 LNG fuel stations throughout the country, with projections to grow to 200 stations over the next two years.

With a stable infrastructure already in place, the challenges for a mature market like Italy are to provide standardisation and advanced fuelling technology.  

“The Italian market for LNG as transportation fuel is no longer in its infancy and suppliers are looking for high tech and reliable LNG fuelling solutions that provide a consistent fuel experience for end users at the highest quality,” says Joost Jansen, Business Development Manager at LIQAL. “We are excited to take our first step into the Italian market with our local partner SGIG.”

SGIG has built 15 LNG fuel stations in Italy, and it took care of turnkey project supply on this latest project. LIQAL supplied the innovative LNG technology. This combination provides a highly stable and cost-effective solution for Socogas. 

A 60 cubic meter LNG storage tank that provides fuel to two LNG dispensers and a CNG dispenser with two-sided fuelling possibility are added to the Fidenza site to give vehicle owners guaranteed quality, accessibility and supply. 

Fabio Scaramuzza, Director at SGIG says: “We were looking for a company to deliver reliable LNG technology for seamless integration with existing fuel stations. That’s where LIQAL came in. Working together we can deliver integrated dependable technology to fulfil our customer’s needs.”

LIQAL and SGIG will also deliver remote performance management and local aftercare to ensure optimum station availability for Socogas. Patrizia Zucchi, CEO of the Socogas Group adds: “Our new fuelling facility needed to comply with the highest standards in terms of quality and safety given that we expect to a yearly throughput of more than 2,000 tons of LNG. The LIQAL system allows efficient operation and fast and consistent fuel supply to the vehicles”. 

With more than 3,000 registered LNG vehicles, Italy has embraced the clear environmental benefits of LNG, and the government offers levies to support the transition away from diesel and other polluting transport fuels.

Future challenges include the need to improve LNG delivery to site and cost of supply. “Decentralised production of Bio-LNG from local organic waste will help to cut these costs,” says Joost Jansen. “LIQAL provides a real-time LNG deliveries dashboard feature for efficient planning of LNG logistics to stations which will also contribute”.  

LNG continues to play a significant role in meeting Italy’s and the world’s need for reliable, low-emission, and low-cost transportation fuel.

About Socogas

Socogas is a leading company in the oil sector in Italy since 1967. The company has 220 employees and €460 million of turnover. Socogas delivers LPG to 36,000 households and industrial clients and has 25% share of the LPG transport market in Italy. The company owns and operates 80 petrol stations in the north of Italy of which 6 sell CNG and 3 sell LNG/L-CNG. These stations are operated under the brands Eni, Esso, Q8 and SOCOGAS. 

Working with KC LNG (a part of MAKEEN Energy), Q8 is building Denmark’s first ever refuelling station for trucks running on liquefied natural gas (LNG). This ambitious project will lead to a greener road transport sector – and it is a decisive step towards a COneutral future. To start, truck drivers will fill their tanks with LNG at the station, but eventually, Q8 will offer 100% fossil-free liquefied biogas (LBG).

Around 30,000 diesel-driven trucks occupy the roads of Denmark, emitting significant amounts of COevery day. To steer the heavy road transport sector in a greener direction, it is, therefore, essential to transition to cleaner, more sustainable fuels. KC LNG will deliver the station, which is expected to be ready at the end of 2021 – and will be the first of its kind in Denmark.

A carefully selected location

The new station will be located at Q8’s IDS station in the Danish city Padborg, which is right next to a major highway and the border to Germany. Padborg is one of Europe’s busiest transport hubs, and over 7,000 trucks make their way here each day, which will make the station a key junction for the transport of goods between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe.

“Here at Q8, we have one clear goal for this project. We want to help our customers start a sustainable transition of their transports. We are seeing a growing demand for sustainable solutions within the heavy goods transport sector, and more companies now demand that their goods be transported using more sustainable energy sources, such as gas. We want to enable our customers to get that transition going, and LNG and liquefied gas in general are highly relevant alternatives for heavy transport, which can’t just be converted to electric overnight. Our customers aren’t waiting around – they want concrete solutions,” says Gert Thomasen, Head of Fleet & IDS from Q8 Denmark.

Green light for sustainable transport

In Denmark, the road transport sector is held back by the complete lack of refuelling options for LNG. Therefore, Q8 has chosen to take the first step with this project, aiming to make it easier for North European freight companies to invest in cleaner technology. Today, LNG usage is widespread in Germany, among other countries, and on the rise in Sweden. Compared to diesel, LNG-fuelled trucks emit up to 22% less CO2 and completely eliminate the emission of harmful particulates.

”The world needs to move away from diesel and other highly polluting fuels – and this initiative is a significant milestone. One of our goals is to break down the barriers that currently hinder the use of cleaner fuel in trucks. Now we are tackling one of the big ones, which is the lack of availability,” says Frej Olsen, Head of Group LNG, KC LNG.

Fast refuelling for all trucks

The station in Padborg will be fully automatic, requiring no operator – the truck driver can fill up his own tank in just a few minutes. The station will be able to accommodate all types of trucks.

The technical solution will be delivered in collaboration with the Dutch company LIQAL. KC LNG will deliver the station as a turnkey project, handling everything from project management to civil works and installation. The station will also be delivered with an advanced online surveillance system that maximises safety and user experience.

On the road to further CO2 reductions

In the future, the station in Padborg will become even greener. Eventually, it will be able to supply liquefied biogas (LBG) – a 100% fossil-free energy source. While the switch from diesel to LNG will require new trucks, transitioning from LNG to LBG needs no further investment in refuelling stations or vehicles.

One significant advantage of LBG is that the production of biogas can accept excess and waste products from, for example, agriculture. In that way, part of the heavy transport can be converted to a fossil-free alternative, while simultaneously reducing the CO2 emissions of both the transport sector and the industries that supply the biogas producers. This will be yet another step on the way to sustainable truck transport and cleaner air.

The LNG station in Padborg will be part of a European network, as IDS (International Diesel Service) has 25 other locations that also offer LNG.

Gasrec has chosen Dutch LNG experts LIQAL to deliver the innovative LNG refuelling technology at Reed Boardall’s newly opened gas station.

Demand for LNG as a clean transport fuel is stronger than ever as more distribution businesses make the switch to alternative fuels. Gasrec and LIQAL have brought their collective expertise together to deliver and install the new private LNG facility for Reed Boardall at the UK’s temperature control distribution business’s Yorkshire headquarters.

This will not only result in the convenience of onsite refuelling, but it will also support the business’ aims to reduce carbon emissions from its fleet, and take advantage of a lower cost and more sustainable fuel.

Gasrec is the largest supplier of natural gas and biogas to the UK road transport sector. It sees tremendous growth potential for renewable fuels and wanted a partner that could provide the right level of technology for this latest venture. For Dutch LNG technology developer LIQAL, expansion into new markets is a key part of its plans and its track record of developing cutting edge LNG technologies made them the perfect partner for Gasrec.

James Westcott, Chief Commercial Officer at Gasrec, explains: “We chose to work with LIQAL because we saw great synergy in our ambition and commitment to innovation. Our size makes us small enough to innovate, and in LIQAL we have found a partner equally committed to making the transportation sector as sustainable as possible.”   

LNG station with next generation technology

The dedicated site at Boroughbridge – the first joint project delivered by LIQAL for Gasrec – will be used to refuel Reed Boardall’s modern fleet of Volvo FH LNG trucks delivering frozen food to supermarkets across the UK.

The fully scalable, skid-mounted refuelling station – known as an MRU – combines best in class performance with the flexibility of a relocatable fuelling facility. This compact, prefabricated system requires limited construction time on site and supplies the same fuelling consistency and reliability as a fully-fledged LNG fuelling station. LIQAL’s patented Boil Off Gas re-liquefication technology ensures unlimited holding time of LNG inside the storage tank. LIQAL also provides remote performance management services for the facility through its advanced online station platform and real-time dashboards for station KPIs and logistics planning.

Grow as you go

The MRU is fully scalable to cope with increased demand as Reed Boardall grows its gas fleet in the future.

As part of their expansion, LIQAL have recently partnered with Kosan Crisplant (part of Makeen Energy), who supported with the local UK installation work for this project.

LIQAL’s Business Development Manager Joost Jansen says: “We’re very excited to be taking our first steps into the UK market and delighted that the UK market leader in LNG transport fuel acknowledges the benefits of our station design and integrated project approach.”

Economic and environmental benefits

Lowering CO2 emissions is a robust impetus to invest in LNG, but transport operators can also make significant fuel cost savings thanks to a duty differential to diesel of approx. 50%, in place until 2032.

“The market is moving rapidly and it’s important to find technology to cope with demand,” says Westcott. “Working with LIQAL we can respond quickly to fulfil our customer’s needs.”

Gasrec can supply future-focused LNG solutions to meet the transport sector’s growing sustainable energy demands and support operators making the transition to LNG.
