Lennart Pilskog, director of public affairs at Volvo Trucks, also commented: “At Volvo Trucks we believe that the viability of carbon dioxide-free transportation is not limited by technology, but rather by the availability of alternative fuels. Gasrec is a key player in this and we are one of the leading truck manufacturers with an energy-efficient gas truck already available on the market. Together we believe that we can enhance and speed up the introduction of LNG and LBM to the transport business, both through own activities and by inspiring others.”
Gasrec is currently developing the UK’s first network of open-access Bio-LNG refueling stations, which is set for completion in 2015. Gasrec’s initiative promises ease of access for refueling, ensuring that 85 per cent of the UK’s HGV population is within four hours’ drive of a station.
