Gasum opens 20th filling station in Sweden

Gasum continues to expand the gas filling station network and is investing with partners to enable the use of environmentally friendlier fuel across Sweden. Our latest addition and the twentieth station opening in Vårgårda is part of the cooperation between Sandahls Logistik, Volvo Trucks and Gasum.

Sharareh Edström, Director, Traffic Sweden at Gasum said "The Vårgårda station means Gasum has 22 liquefied gas across Sweden and a total of 50 across the Nordics, where some stations are operated by Gasum’s partners. As the infrastructure expands, there will be more and more gas-powered vehicles on Swedish roads. Today, there are an estimated 600 heavy-duty vehicles that run on liquefied gas. Biogas is a circular fuel that drastically reduces carbon dioxide emissions - by as much as 90 percent compared to fossil fuel alternatives.

The Vårgårda station is the result of cooperation between purposeful parties who actively invest and thus advance their positions regarding emissions reductions in road transport. Gas is a cost effective way to reduce emissions and a solution which is already available today. There is huge interest in using this new filling station and several companies have signalled that this venture gives them completely new possibilities to switch over to lower emissions transports,”
