“This fuel is the future and will reduce our carbon footprints. The trucks are twice quieter and are not affected by the uncertainty of diesel cost,” highlighted Patrick Mendy, CEO of the company that operates 300 trucks in Benesse-Maremne and that expects to use these vehicles for every day hauling.
Meanwhile, Iveco France, which designed the truck prototype that runs entirely on LNG and weighs 38 tones, has already announced its plans to start its mass production in June next year, published AFP. According to Charlotte Hubert, president of Gnvert, the entry into force of Euro 6 (on the reduction of pollutants in fuels) in 2015 will in any case be a “severe blow” to the diesel engine. “All lights are green,” she said.
