ReFuels, a leading biomethane supplier, emphasized its pivotal role in assisting haulage fleets in reducing CO2 emissions as it embarked on the construction of a new refuelling station in Doncaster.
The establishment of the Bio-CNG station is poised to revolutionize access to Bio-CNG fuel for hauliers traveling to and from UK ports. The strategic location places four of the nation’s largest ports within a four-to-five-hour radius of the station, with Immingham docks conveniently situated within an hour’s reach.
ReFuels, the entity behind the station, highlighted that several of its customers, including industry giants like Amazon, DHL, and Lidl, already have warehousing and distribution bases in the vicinity. Philip Fjeld, CEO and co-founder of ReFuels, emphasized the significance of the Doncaster station as a crucial logistics hub in the UK. Fjeld stated, “The Doncaster station will not only expand the reach of low-carbon deliveries for our existing customers but [also] many major brands and local hauliers looking to make substantial emission cuts of over 90% from fleets.”
Owned by a joint venture with Foresight Group, the Doncaster station is designed to feature 10 fuel pump islands, capable of refuelling more than 500 trucks daily. In comparison, the existing CNG Fuels network in the UK, comprising 13 stations, can accommodate refuelling for over 6,500 HGVs on a daily basis.
ReFuels disclosed its plans for further expansion, with another station under construction in Aylesford. Additionally, the group anticipates the commencement of construction for one more station during the financial reporting year ending on March 31, 2024.
Recent strides by ReFuels include the opening of the first biomethane refuelling station in Wales, located in Parc Bryn Cegin, Bangor, providing another noteworthy milestone in the company’s commitment to sustainable fuel solutions.
