Rolande has put into operation its 20th LNG station in Europe, which is its fifth refueling facility in Germany. It also has a total of 13 service stations in the Netherlands and two in Belgium. In addition, it plans to open 12 to 14 additional LNG stations and its first bio-LNG plant (in Leeuwarden) in 2022. The company’s mission is driving heavy haulage on biomethane.

There are several big companies that already choose LNG trucks. Albert Heijn supplies its Brabant branches with trucks that drive on Rolande’s clean fuel, and PostNL is also a big client of Rolande. Besides that, large companies like Unilever and Ikea are using more and more LNG haulage.

In the last 10 years Rolande has grown together with the development of LNG. “From the first manual transmission LNG trucks with little horsepower to trucks which are competitive to the current diesel truck. And also the development of bio-LNG: the same product, but made from organic waste, sludge, waste and manure,” said Marketing Director of Rolande Leila Mulder. “We really participate in the energy transition.”

Where LNG saves about 20% on CO2 emissions in comparison to diesel, Rolande’s self- and locally-produced bio-LNG will help eliminate almost all of the CO2 emissions. Since the new biomethane plant will be located in the Netherlands, it will save the CO2 that is released on the transport of the bio-LNG, which usually comes from abroad, such as Scandinavia.

“Right now, about 25% of our LNG stock is bio-LNG. When the plant opens, it could increase up to 50%. In five years, we want to offer 100% bio-LNG”, commented Jolon van der Schuit, CEO of Rolande.
