LNG (liquefied natural gas) is an immediate and effective response to the challenges of the energy transition in the road transport sector, reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 15% compared to diesel, particulate emissions by 95% and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 70%.

The new loading bays at Fos Cavaou join the two existing ones, thus doubling the terminal's loading capacity to 22,000 slots per year.

With this commissioning, Elengy continues to develop its infrastructure to provide reliable and sustainable access to LNG for road transport that started : 

- in 2013, with the road tanker loading bays at the Montoir-de-Bretagne and Fos terminals. They allowed a total of 70,000 tanker trucks loading operations to be carried out over the past ten years.

- since 2023, through the transport service by rail of ISO containers at the two Fos terminals.

The two new bays at Fos Cavaou represent an investment of ten million euros.
