LC3 confirms its confidence in the HDV manufacturer with its latest purchase of LNG Euro VI trucks. This order arrives shortly after the first five of its kind were put on the road. The Italian transport company has continuously strived to equip its fleet with alternative technological solutions capable of reducing the vehicles’ environmental impact.
Following the opening of the first ENI LNG station in Piacenza, LC3 was the first company in Italy to purchase the Stralis LNG and use them on the country’s roads.
The Stralis Natural Power is fueled by a 330 hp Cursor 8 CNG Euro VI engine. It is fitted with a 510 liter cryogenic LNG fuel tank and 4×70 litre CNG tanks ensuring a fuel range of over 750 km. Because of these factors, the vehicles can be used for medium/long-term distances.
With reference to cost effectiveness and savings in terms of the Total Cost of Ownership: natural gas is significantly less expensive when compared with Diesel. This results in fuel costs being reduced by up to 40% (i.e. the most important factor when evaluating TCO).
Iveco is a leading European manufacturer of NGVs: over 200 LNG vehicles are currently in circulation throughout Europe, chiefly in Spain and the Netherlands where the appropriate infrastructure is well established.
