The opening of this station represents a concrete step towards facilitating clean maritime transport. The new LNG bunker station is part of PitPoint.LNG’s plans to develop a European LNG infrastructure for heavy-duty transport by road and water and is co-financed by the European Union. The LNG bunker station is located in the Niehler Hafen in Cologne (Am Molenkopf 17).
