What are the advantages of a (Bio-)LNG truck?

With (Bio-)LNG you drive cleaner and quieter without losing the benefits of a regular truck. Choosing (Bio-)LNG means choosing the future. Read all the benefits here.

What is CNG+?

CNG stands for compressed natural gas. Rolande offers the highest quality CNG in the Netherlands: CNG+. Our CNG is high-calorific, which increases the range by 25%.

What is LNG?

LNG stands for liquefied natural gas. By liquefying natural gas, its volume decreases 600 times, making it very suitable as a fuel. Natural gas liquefies at -160 degrees Celsius. Its main component is methane (CH4), the lightest hydrocarbon compound.

What is Bio-LNG?

Bio-LNG is methane extracted from fermentation of waste products, which is then liquefied. The composition of Bio-LNG is almost identical to that of LNG. Bio-LNG can therefore be used as a circular fuel in the same vehicles and infrastructure as LNG. Bio-LNG can be used in any blend in existing LNG trucks. As a result, you retain all the benefits in terms of performance, fuel economy and noise level that you are used to from an LNG truck. For a blend, a fixed surcharge is paid on the LNG price. Rolande is happy to help you make a custom calculation for your fleet. Plus, with our CO2 calculator, we can calculate exactly what blend you can use to meet your CO2 reduction targets.

At the station

I see condensation vapour, what is going on?

Don't panic, this is normal. During LNG unloading, condensation vapour often forms, which comes from the evaporator under the trailer. Filling a tank at a station takes 1 to 1.5 hours.

Can I park at a Rolande station?

Parking at a (Bio-)LNG station is permitted exclusively in the designated parking areas.

Where can I find a hot water point?

There is a hot water point at every Rolande station. The location of the hot water point is indicated by a sign. At each point, you will also find a watering can. If the nozzle has frozen during refuelling, you can use hot water to loosen the nozzle.

When do I use the emergency stop?

Each dispenser has an emergency cut-off button with a cover. This button can be pressed in emergency situations. The entire installation is then disabled. After pressing the emergency stop, call 112 from a safe location. When do you press the emergency stop? - Someone is (seriously) injured - In the event of a spill or accidental release of liquid LNG - There is a fire at the station  

When do I use the intercom?

To report malfunctions and technical questions about refuelling, you can call 24/7 via the intercom at the filling station. The location of the intercom is indicated by stickers.

What does a Rolande station look like?

In this vlog, you can see what a Rolande Bio-LNG station looks like and how it works.

Emergency instructions

What should I do if a fire occurs at the station?

In case of fire, an alarm will sound. The station will automatically go into emergency shutdown. Notify the administrator via the intercom. The administrator will summon emergency services. If the intercom is not accessible, call 112 from a safe location.

What should I do in the event of an LNG spill or release?

Press the emergency stop. In the event that a large amount of LNG is released, the station will automatically go into emergency shutdown. Notify the administrator via the intercom. The administrator will summon emergency services. If the intercom is not accessible, call 112 from a safe location.

What situations are classed as an emergency?

The following are considered emergency situations: - Someone is (seriously) injured - A spill or accidental release of liquid LNG - A fire at the station

Refuelling

How does a first refuelling with a new truck go?

When first refuelling a new truck, we recommend adding up to 6 kg of LNG first and then driving for 10-15 minutes to cool the tank and get the pressure to below 10 bar/150 psi before starting the normal refuelling procedure. You may need to repeat this step several times.

The nozzle is frozen solid, what should I do?

There is a hot water point at every Rolande station. The location of the hot water point is indicated by a sign. At each point, you will also find a watering can. If the nozzle has frozen during refuelling, use hot water to loosen the nozzle.

How do I prevent the nozzle from freezing?

By using the air gun to spray the nozzle thoroughly clean and dry, you can prevent the nozzle from freezing during refuelling.

What types of nozzles are there?

At our Alkmaar and Heerenveen filling stations, the nozzles work according to the butterfly principle. All other Rolande stations are equipped with twisting nozzles.

How do I operate the dispenser?

For each filling station, the operation of the dispenser may vary. The correct order is on the dispenser sticker.

Why is wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) mandatory?

LNG is liquefied natural gas (methane), which has an extremely low temperature of -160 °C. This means that the nozzle, dispenser lines and vehicle tank lines can be very cold. Using personal protective equipment (PPE) prevents burns and frostbite. You can read more about safe refuelling at a Rolande station here.

I would like to properly instruct my staff, can Rolande help me with this?

We believe safe refuelling is very important and contribute to driver training in a variety of ways. For example, we organise special Rolande days at our stations. A calendar of dates when our instructors will be at the stations will soon be posted on our website. We also provide customised tank training. Depending on the need, we offer appropriate training. If interested, please fill in the contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

The payment post requests a driver ID, what do I enter here?

A driver ID is a code that can be requested for your employer's records. If you have a personal code or registration number, you can enter it on the payment post. If you don't know your driver ID (anymore), enter '0' four times.

Which fuel cards can I use to fill up with you?
