LIQAL and Gasrec have joined forced to install a new private LNG station for temperature-controlled food distribution company Reed Boardall.

To be located at the company’s Yorkshire headquarters, the station will support Reed Boardall’s fleet of Volvo FH LNG trucks delivering frozen food to supermarkets across the UK.

Known as an MRU, the fully scalable, skid-mounted refuelling station combines best in class performance with the flexibility of a relocatable fuelling facility.

The system requires limited construction time on site and supplies the same fuelling consistency and reliability as a fully-fledged LNG fuelling station.

LIQAL’s patented Boil Off Gas re-liquefication technology ensures unlimited holding time of LNG inside the storage tank.

The company also provides remote performance management services for the facility through its advanced online station platform and real-time dashboards for station KPIs and logistics planning.

Commenting on the development, Joost Janse, LIQAL’s Business Development Manager, said, “We’re very excited to be taking our first steps into the UK market and delighted that the UK market leader in LNG transport fuel acknowledges the benefits of our station design and integrated project approach.”

James Westcott, Chief Commercial Officer at Gasrec, added, “We chose to work with LIQAL because we saw great synergy in our ambition and commitment to innovation.”

“Our size makes us small enough to innovate, and in LIQAL we have found a partner equally committed to making the transportation sector as sustainable as possible.”
