The mobility service provider DKV recently expanded its LNG acceptance network to 100 stations, thus reaching an important milestone. The network now covers six European countries, making DKV the provider of the largest LNG acceptance network in Europe.
Liquefied natural gas produces 28 percent less CO2 emissions than conventional fuels. Many countries therefore offer tax advantages to transport companies using LNG. As a result, the alternative fuel is increasingly attracting the interest of European hauliers. “With the expansion of our LNG acceptance network to 100 stations, we can offer our customers a sustainable alternative to conventional fuels, especially in the heavy-duty and long-distance segment. By continuously expanding our supply network with a strong focus on multi-energy filling stations, we want to become the leading provider of sustainable mobility solutins,” says Sven Mehringer, Managing Director Energy & Vehicle Services at DKV Mobility.
Depending on national legislation, drivers may have to go through a registration and certification process for LNG refuelling. At many LNG partners, drivers can also use e-learning to familiarize themselves with the safe performance of LNG refuelling. DKV Mobility connects around 5,000 filling stations throughout Europe every year and has recently expanded its total network to over 60,000 stations.
