LIQVIS and Cryonorm Systems BV conclude additional EPC contract
- LIQVIS and CRYONORM continue and deepen their co-operation in driving the expansion of the LNG station network in Germany and France
- During the next years, CRYONORM will deliver up to 16 additional LNG fueling stations to LIQVIS for the German and French market
Cryonorm Systems BV, LIQVIS GmbH and LIQVIS France SAS have signed a contract for the call-off of up to 16 further skid-mounted public LNG Fueling stations. They will be erected in Germany and France by the Dutch company Cryonorm during the next years. Cryonorm has already build 12 LNG-fueling stations for LIQVIS between 2017 and 2021.
The new contract MERCURY II is an extension of the “MERCURY I” EPC Contract which was negotiated between the partners in 2018 and that already covered 16 LNG stations. With the extensions of the MERCURY I contract, Liqvis is clearly underlining its growth ambitions. By scaling up the national network of LNG Stations, the demand of especially long-haul transportation is addressed. Especially Bio-LNG is expected to become one of the most important fuels in the near future when it comes to sustainable transportation.
Piet Tel, Owner and CEO of CRYONORM Group: “We highly appreciate the good collaboration with Liqvis and proud to be awarded with the MERCURE II contract. Based on the operational feedback and open discussions between the teams, both companies contributed to the current station design offering highest availability and optimized design to fit several plots. These stations will further contribute to achieving the climate targets for heavy goods vehicles.”
Sebastian Gröblinghoff, Manging Director LIQVIS GmbH: “We are looking forward to continuing our business partnership with CRYONORM. Expanding the LNG fuelling station network across Europe requires the co-operation with a strong, reliable and competent equipment manufacturer. We are happy that with CRYONORM we have found such a partner that also shares our vision of driving the promotion of alternative fuels as well as the decarbonisation of heavy duty transport.”
