Collaborating with Mjåvann Invest, Gasum offers both compressed and liquefied biogas in line with its mission to respond to increasing demand for sustainable fuel alternatives in the region. The station is accessible to both corporate distributors and the public.

This facility in Kristiansand marks Gasum’s sixth LBG filling station in Norway, serving logistics companies in the region and facilitating long-haul traffic between Oslo and Kristiansand. Gasum plans to construct additional filling stations later in 2024, with one slated for Sandnes near Stavanger, thereby beginning the process of connecting the corridor along the E39 from Kristiansand to Ålesund on the western coast of Norway.

Jogeir Munkeby, Sales Manager, Traffic Norway at Gasum said, “We’re pleased to respond to the growing interest in biogas by extending our filling station network to Kristiansand. This expansion is a crucial move in developing the biogas infrastructure, with the goal of enabling biogas-powered trucks throughout southern Norway by the end of 2025. Our expansion of the Nordic gas filling station network not only benefits the environment but also offers logistics companies opportunities to significantly reduce emissions.”

“We in the Mjåvann industrial area are very happy and proud that Gasum has established this new filling station at our site in Mjåvann. The availability of biogas makes the area more attractive to everyone with some form of logistical needs. The green shift in the transport sector is moving ahead at full speed, which means this filling station is positive news for the entire southern region,” says Andre Kjetså, General Manager at Mjåvann Industripark AS.
