I want you to meet Philippe Heisch. He is the Global Sales Manager of LNG distribution systems at Cryostar, and a really passionate professional when it comes to bringing a new and efficient alternative fuel system to the market.

During the full podcast interview -that you can hear on Spotify or Apple Podcasts-, we could learn many different things about Cryostar. A company with an amazing background in a very specific industry which is: cryogenic equipment. At this moment Cryostar is scaling from 400 to more than 800 workers with many different facilities continuously evolving around the world. Not only that, Cryostar is one of the leaders with the operation of more than 77 refueling stations in Europe at this moment.

If you know nothing about LNG, you should start right here. In this episode, we go deep into understanding what are the basic requirements for developing new LNG stations, and how to start dimensioning them. We get to know a lot better about how can LNG tackle the autonomy issues and still be considered as a feasible solution for Heavy Duty fleet owners.
