DKV's LNG supply network thereby grows to around 120 stations throughout Europe, making it the largest LNG supply network in the industry. Air Liquide stations are located along the French north-south motorway network which is a crucial route for road transport companies with European driving scope.
“With this partnership we encourage hauliers to opt for less polluting fuels, thus aiming to limit the environmental impact of energy consumption”, says Sven Mehringer, Managing Director Energy & Vehicle Services at DKV. Having a competitive cost structure, the growth in demand for natural gas is at the center of the ecological transition. Indeed, natural gas is a less polluting energy source than conventional fuels, allowing a considerable reduction of nitrogen and CO2 emissions. The agreement allows DKV to develop and diversify its natural gas supply network and enables Air Liquide, for its part, to extend its LNG & CNG offering to a wider customer base.
