Woodside Haulage, a division of Woodside Logistics Group, has introduced an IVECO Stralis NP 4×2 tractor powered by compressed natural gas. This addition marks the company’s first new IVECO purchase for more than 15 years.
Supplied by Emerald Truck & Van and with support from Gas Networks Ireland, the CNG truck has returned better than expected fuel consumption figures, and are helping to reduce Woodside’s carbon footprint in line with the group´s corporate vision.
Mark Woodside, Managing Director of Woodside Haulage, commented: “There is an expectation from many customers that we adopt innovative technology to reduce our environmental impact when we are transporting their goods. We view this transition to CNG as an important first step in the roll out of natural gas-powered vehicles within our fleet.”
The Stralis entry into service follows the opening of the new Circle K CNG refueling station at Dublin Port – with the vehicle to be used for general haulage duties in and around Dublin, operating from Woodside Haulage’s depot inside the port.
