Rebro Transport Service, from Rucphen in the southern Netherlands, has began using two Volvo LNG trucks. As one of the first delivery companies in the Netherlands to recognition on transport with an LHV aggregate, the corporation is decided to makes its transport provider extra sustainable via using Liquefied Natural Gas fuelled automobiles.
The vehicles are specially used for the distribution of applications in Germany, with the PitPoint LNG station on the Truckeasy fuelling station of DCB Energy in Venlo (a city in the southeast of the Netherlands, close to the German border) turning into a set carrier point. LNG refueling in Venlo gives a very good operating radius in Germany in which LNG vans are exempt from MAUT.
CO2 Reduction of 20 percentage
“You can use a simple calculation”, says Roy Rens, owner of Rebro Transport. “An LHV (Long, Heavy Vehicle inclusive of a container truck, a dolly and a box chassis or trailer) can carry as much as 50 percent extra cargo. This effects in substantial fee financial savings and is likewise better for the surroundings. We now have eight LHV mixtures and have been gambling with the idea of using LNG trucks for this to make our transport extra sustainable, something that our clients additionally keep in mind critical. After all, LNG trucks emit 20 percentage much less CO2.
“The monetary photo is proper and this is the figuring out aspect for us now to pressure LNG vans. In Germany we do now not have to pay Maut with LNG trucks as much as and which includes 2020 and within the Netherlands there can be an incentive scheme for LNG.”
The two Volvo LNG trucks are geared up with a 205 kg LNG gas tank for a number of as much as one thousand kilometers. “We actually have a branch in Meerbusch in Germany,” says Rens. “That is the place of those vans, which are used constantly at least six days per week. In Germany, the network of LNG filling stations continues to be beneath improvement, but from Meerbusch the PitPoint.LNG LNG filling station in Sevenum (Venlo) is without difficulty accessible.”
Truck transport turned into made in collaboration with Volvo Trucks dealer Bluekens Truck and Bus. The drivers of the brand new LNG vans were without delay thereafter provided with LNG tank education by means of PitPoint.
DCB Energy notes LNG burns purifier than diesel, resulting in 95% fewer emissions of particulate be counted and eighty% fewer emissions of nitrogen oxides. It also has 15% -25% much less CO2 emissions. LNG is therefore already broadly used inside the United States and in various European countries. A distribution network has been installation alongside the most essential worldwide delivery routes, the so-called Blue Corridors.
