LNG-BC: Liquefied Natural Gas Blue Corridors 

The LNG Blue Corridors project’s aim is to establish LNG as a real alternative for medium & long distance transport - first as a complementary fuel and later as an adequate substitute for diesel.

To accomplish its objective it has defined a roadmap of LNG refuelling points along four corridors covering the Atlantic area, the Mediterranean region and connecting Europe’s South with the North and its West and East accordingly. In order to implement a sustainable transport network for Europe, the project has set the goal to build approximately 14 new LNG or L-CNG stations, both permanent and mobile, on critical locations along the Blue Corridors whilst building up a fleet of approximately 100 Heavy Duty Vehicles powered by LNG. The project is co-funded by the European Commission with the amount of 7.96 M€ (total investments amounting to 14.33 M€), involving 27 partners from 11 countries, all members of NGVA Europe.
