Flogas has recently introduced two new, innovative trucks that operate with bio-LNG. These vehicles, which provide an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the conventional diesel engine alternative, are part of the company’s 2040 ambition of providing their customers with 100% renewable energy solutions.
Flogas’ extensive fleet of vehicles already includes a range of dual fuel and electric hybrid alternatives. However, the all-new Volvo FM tractor units, which will be used to transport bulk LPG and LNG, will be a first of their kind and will contribute to the company’s aim of growing their alternatively fueled and low carbon fleet.
“These trucks are just the first of many, as we look to make our 200-strong fleet cleaner, greener and increasingly futureproof,” said James Goodson, National Account Manager for Alternative Transport Fuels at Flogas. “They will each be powered by renewable bio-LNG – a highly sustainable biofuel that’s produced during the anaerobic digestion process. This means they’ll be 50% quieter, they’ll release significantly fewer pollutants, and fuel costs will be far lower.”
“As a leading LNG supplier in the UK, at Flogas we understand the critical role this fuel will play as we face stringent government targets to tackle carbon emissions and improve air quality. Whilst it is still in its infancy in the transport industry, the strong environmental and cost-saving benefits compared to conventional fuels, means LNG is set to become the fuel of choice for heavy goods vehicles,” he added.
