As part of its continuous commitment to the environment, Margolles Logistic has added five environmentally-friendly tractors. These new Scania units belong to the P series, have a 9-liter 340-hp engine that offers a maximum torque of 1,600 Nm and are propelled by CNG. These are the first NGVs of Margolles Logistic, which has a fleet of 40 vehicles, three of them manufactured by Scania.
“I believe that Scania has the best natural gas vehicle on the market and, as we already have some Scania units in our fleet, we have opted for these vehicles,” said Luis Miguel Margolles, General Director of Margolles Logistic SL. “These trucks will operate in the city of Barcelona. We have decided to bet on natural gas to seek the reduction of emissions from our transport operations and thus face the restrictions on entry into the city, since next year a new access regulation will be applied.”
The increased concern about air quality has resulted in traffic restrictions in many European cities. That is why the demand for natural gas-powered vehicles is growing exponentially, since they represent a sustainable alternative for the distribution sector. One of the main advantages of natural gas as a vehicle fuel is that it reduces CO2 emissions by up to 15%, and can reach 90% in the case of biogas. In addition, natural gas engines are quieter than diesel, which make them suitable for sensitive urban environments.
To analyze this extremely positive scenario for natural gas and sustainable mobility, and evaluate the latest in alternative fuel technologies for road and sea transport, AltFuels Iberia 2020 will be held on 5-9 October at IFEMA Trade Fair Center in Madrid.
The event will feature first level conferences and exhibition of vehicles of all kinds, refueling stations, components, plants, engines terrestrial and marine, as well as the entire alternative fuels industry universe showing the latest technological developments, with multiple networking and business options, and new advances.
