NGV Industry to meet in Barcelona
next June

Europe is looking for solutions to support the decarbonisation of the transport sector.

The use of gas as fuel can significantly contribute to reduce the Co2 emission from transport, improve the air quality and offer a profitable alternative fuel for the transport and logistics sector.

The role of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) is key to substitute conventional fuels with low-emission fuels, also reducing European dependence on oil.

NGVA Europe 2017 annual event NGV Corridors: Towards Sustainable Mobility will be an opportunity to report back on the outcomes from the LNG Blue Corridor Project, as well as to identify the best common solutions for reducing emissions from transport.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Barcelona in June 2017 !

LNG Blue Corridors

The project started in 2013 with the aim of demonstration that heavy duty vehicles running with liquefied gas  (LNG) are a real alternative for medium & long distance transport - first as a complementary fuel and later as an adequate substitute for diesel.

To accomplish its objective, the project defined a roadmap of LNG refueling points along four corridors covering the Atlantic area, the Mediterranean region and connecting Europe’s South with the North and its West and East accordingly.

In order to implement a sustainable transport network for Europe, the project has set the goal to build 13 new LNG or L-CNG stations, both permanent and mobile, on critical locations along the Blue Corridors whilst building up a fleet of approximately 130 Heavy Duty Vehicles powered by LNG.

The project is co-funded by the European Commission with the amount of 7.96 M€ (total investments amounting to 14.33 M€), involving 27 partners from 11 countries.

Fleet operators need clean vehicles

The logistic sector is looking for a mature, sustainable and cost-effective alternative fuel that could partner up with their daily needs. Freight transport is a key driver of economic growth and mobility of cargo in Europe is largely dependent on road transport.  

LNG can offer a solution for them and therefore several fleet operators across Europe are already delivering their goods with LNG. For them, the European infrastructure for alternative fuels should ensure an efficient, reliable and sustainable future road transport sector.
