Skangass Continues Its Bet on LNG for Transport
Skangass bets on new design of LNG trailers for Sweden and will attempt tailor-made solutions to increase LNG usage for transportation.
On Friday, a subsidiary of Finland’s Gasum reported that a new type of trailer has delivered its first load of LNG from the storing terminal in Lysekil.
‘This is the first of five trailers of its kind. They will operate between the Skangass’ terminal in Lysekil and the customer SSAB in Borlänge, Sweden, covering a distance of 420 km. The owner and operator, ScanTank Gass AB, will put the remaining trailers into service during spring 2015’ reads a note released by Skangass.
According to ScanTank Gass, the trailers are designed to meet the Swedish road regulations.
“We are very satisfied with ScanTank Gass’ choice of transport equipment for this particular customer. With this solution both the environmental footprint and operational safety are impressively improved, which is a step in the right direction for LNG distribution,” says Kenneth Olsen, Technical and Operations Director, Skangass.
Skangass launched its LNG terminal in Lysekil, Sweden, in October 2014.
