Volvo Trucks Italia has introduced a dual-fuel FM vehicle enabling methane/diesel consumption up to 80/20%. Equipped with a 287 litres LNG cryogenic tank on-board, this truck is already circulating in Sweden, Holland and UK, while Italy seems to be the next country for commercialization. Moreover, Iveco stated that all the CNG product range can be adapted to liquified gas, thus exploiting a LNG mature technology for both heavy and professional duty vehicles.
Logicompany, a major transportation and logistic company with several hubs in Italy, was also invited to witness the concrete interest and achievability of economical convenience of LNG within their fleets.
It is worth mentioning that Vanzetti Engineering developed the first L-CNG station in Italy, which is now operative and assures that each facility is built with the upgrade for LNG refuelling, which widens the opportunity to create “blue corridors” in addition to service stations dedicated to internal fleets.
