The Daventry facility is capable of fueling up to 250 HGVs a day in the first phase from three Bio-LNG dispensers. The second phase will increase that capacity to up to 700 vehicles. Gasrec will provide training and support to drivers. This will initially be carried out at the station, before customers’ own teams are able to train their colleagues. A five-person Gasrec team will staff the station 24-hours a day.
This station is also the first site of Gasrec’s Bio-LNG refueling network planned to be up and running by the end of 2015. It will be conveniently located near motorway junctions so that 85 percent of the UK’s HGV population will have at least one location within four hours’ drive. The entire system will be monitored from a control centre in Daventry and is set to keep expanding.
Gasrec is specifically looking to serve multi-location logistics organizations and in the last 18 months has already installed eight refueling stations at customer sites. Clients include B&Q, Tesco, and Waitrose. “It is a pleasure to see our service not only saving customers significant sums of money but also helping them to play their part in protecting the environment,” commented Gasrec commercial development manager, Doug Leaf.
