Gasum Opens Swedish Bunkering Site

Finland's Gasum opened a new LNG bunkering station in Sweden in the middle of this month, it said on June 30.

The station at the port of Nynashamn near in Stockholm took a year to build and can bunker from two trucks at the same time, and while ships are loading or unloading. It is frequently used by two of Destination Gotland's gas ferries, Gasum said. Bunkering can be completed within 45 minutes.

Customers welcomed the shorter time spent bunkering and being able to do so in normal operating hours, said Destination CEO Christer Bruzelius in a statement. The station is just 5 km from Gasum's LNG terminal, meaning the company's LNG strucks can transport fuel to the site efficiently, Gasum said.
