IVECO was honored to support Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant in London, in association with specialist event hauler, KB Event. IVECO supplied three of its IVECO S-WAY tractor units, to pull three of the pageant’s floats, of which two vehicles were CNG-powered, which provided a sustainable approach to the event.
The two biomethane fueled IVECO S-WAYs (AS440S46TP natural gas) pulled the ‘70s Northern Soul Trailer and the Platinum Pals float featuring beloved children’s characters over the years including Postman Pat, Sooty & Sweep, Bill & Ben, Bagpuss, Paddington Bear, Danger Mouse, and Wallace & Gromit.
“KB Event are leading the way with sustainable solutions to events and tours – continually exploring new alternatives as they come onto the market. The IVECO S-WAY vehicles were a key ingredient to helping make the Platinum Jubilee Pageant an environmentally friendly event success,” said Richard Burnett, Managing Director of KB Events.
The IVECO S-WAY Natural Gas line-up remains a leader in alternative fuels technology for heavy trucks, tried, tested and ready to significantly reduce fleet emissions now with either bio-CNG or bio-LNG. Not only is it beneficial for the environment by emitting up to 95% less CO2, but the vehicles also emit up to 50% less noise than the equivalent diesel and offer a great driving experience for drivers too.
