Transcentro Marín, a logistics group based in Santa Cruz de Mudela (Ciudad Real), has added two Scania natural gas tractors to its fleet. NGVs account for more than 30% of the company’s total fleet, a strong commitment towards sustainable transport and emissions reduction.
These two new Scania LNG trucks feature a 13-liter 410-hp engine and a maximum torque of 2,000 Nm, which always work in conjunction with Scania Opticruise, Scania’s automated gearshift system. These vehicles are already in operation providing logistics coverage to one of Transcentro Marín’s main clients, Calidad Pascual.
“Scania is a benchmark and very reliable brand. People have been talking very well about their natural gas vehicles and we wanted to try them. These trucks are already circulating and the drivers are very happy with them,” said Carlos Marín, managing director of Transcentro Marín.
“LNG reduces particle emissions by 90%. In a world where we are increasingly aware of the protection of the environment and climate change, sustainability becomes a competitive benefit that we want to take advantage of by the hand of our customers and Calidad Pascual’s ambitious sustainability project,” added Marín.
