Gasnam, the Iberian association founded with the aim of promoting the use of natural gas in both road and maritime transport, has visited the facilities of Scania in Madrid to see first-hand the company’s range of natural gas vehicles and verify that the benefits are comparable to a vehicle that uses conventional fuels, while additionally represent a significant economic savings, reduction of CO2 emissions and improvements in energy efficiency.
The visit, attended by Carla García, responsible for the Technical Area; Eugenia Sillero, General Secretary; and Elena Martínez, from the Communications department, focused on the brand’s latest LNG model featuring 13 liters, 6 cylinders and more than 1,000 kilometers of drive range in tractors and up to 1,600 in rigid trucks. It is the most powerful vehicle of its range with 410 HP and a torque of 2,000 Nm.
The Scania full NGV range was also reviewed, consisting of these three models in both LNG and CNG propulsions: 280 hp, 340 hp and 410 hp. These vehicles reduce CO2 emissions by up to 20% with natural gas and up to 99% with biogas. They represent a real option for long distance transport and an advantageous option for urban transport, since they can circulate even in situations of both environmental and noise restrictions.
Gasnam and Scania work in parallel to promote the use of sustainable vehicles and thus improve air quality in urban centers and reduce the environmental impact.
