    Robin Meczes for Commercial Motor 6 March 2020 - Ocado extends its investment in CNG

    Hatfield (London) UK - Online grocery retailer Ocado has ordered a further 30 IVECO Stralis NP CNG tractors. The move follows an initial investment in 29 Stralis NP 4x2 CNG tractors in mid-2018. Ten of the latest blended biomethane-powered trucks have already gone into service, with the remainder due to follow this year.

    The Stralis NP 400 4x2s, powered by a Cursor 9 Euro-6 gas engine, deliver the same output of 400hp and 1,700 Nm of torque as diesel equivalents, according to IVECO. Each vehicle emits 50% less NOx and 95% less particulate matter than current Euro-6 limits, as well as 95% less CO2, it says.

    The performance of the first batch of Stralis NPs has been great, commented Graham Thomas, fleet operations manager at Ocado Group. We’ve now clocked up more than 4,000,000km under gas power, and we know we can comfortably cover a 550km (350mi) range when operating longer routes with our single-deck trailers.

    We didn’t order any new diesel trucks in 2019. Indeed, since our investment in the refuelling site in Hatfield and our first 29 CNG trucks, we have reviewed the market carefully and looked at where the various manufacturers stand in terms of natural gas technology. We are fully confident we are heading in the right direction – hence the order for a further 30 IVECOs.

    In January last year, Ocado self-funded the purchase of an onsite CNG refueling station at its Hatfield Customer Fulfillment Center, which was designed and built by Gasrec to have two dispensers. A second phase to be completed 3Q 2020 will add more storage and an additional compressor.

      Matthew Mercure for NGTNews April 20, 2020 - Gasrec Notches Record Growth in CNG, LNG Sales

      This record growth follows an influx of new trucks into the market running on CNG or LNG. “The growth we have seen has been phenomenal, with volumes more than doubling between the final quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020,” says James Westcott, CCO of Gasrec. Demand for gas year-to-date is currently split approximately 70/30 in terms of LNG versus CNG, with LNG proving most popular for vehicles requiring maximum range.

      Gasrec supplies fleets from a network of eight refueling facilities, with its flagship site at the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) – Europe’s largest dedicated natural gas refueling station – currently running at just over 30% capacity. At maximum utilization, DIRFT has the capacity to refuel 700 heavy-duty vehicles per day.

        Will Owen for LNG Industry 27 April 2020 A new Liqvis LNG filling station for trucks has been opened in the central German city of Kassel.

        This is now Liqvis’s second permanent LNG filling station – with the first located in Grünheide near Berlin – and it will replace the mobile station that has been stationed in Kassel up until now. Silvano Calcagno, Managing Director of Liqvis GmbH, says: “Thanks in no small part to the toll exemption in Germany, LNG has established itself as a fuel on the market over the last three years, which can be seen in the large increase in revenue at our filling stations over the past year.”

            May 27 2020 - Agility Updates ProRail CNG Fuel System

            Agility Fuel Solutions, provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, introduced the new fifth generation ProRail CNG fuel system. The ProRail is lightweight and durable, utilizing carbon fiber composite TUFFSHELL ACF Type 4 CNG cylinders. The ProRail is 30-pounds lighter than the previous generation ProRail. Agility’s integrated Fuel Management Module (FMM), now standard on the ProRail, provides a fast-fill receptacle for up to 13% faster refueling, a de-fueling receptacle, and ignition disconnect fuel caps.

            Since the ProRail family of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems was introduced in 2016, it has been used in a wide variety of demanding applications, and powers tens of thousands of commercial fleet vehicles on the road, according to Agility. The ProRail can be combined with Agility’s ProCab behind-the-cab CNG fuel systems for added fuel capacity and range.

              IVECO Press Room 6/5/2020

              Today, on World Environment Day, IVECO welcomes the German Federal Council’s (Bundesrat) final decision to extend the motorway toll exemption for CNG and LNG heavy-duty trucks over 7.5 tons until December 31st, 2023. With IVECO S-WAY NP, which is available in CNG and LNG versions, freight forwarders will benefit not only from traveling toll-free in Germany for a further three years and the significantly lower fuel costs, but also from subsidies for new purchases until the end of 2020.

                Matthew Mercure for NGTNews August 6, 2020 - Agility Introduces 3rd-Gen Roof Mount CNG Fuel System

                Agility introduced its roof mount CNG fuel systems for refuse fleets in 2001. With a design utilizing Agility’s lightweight carbon fiber composite TUFFSHELL ACF Type 4 CNG cylinders, and with fuel capacity options ranging from 60-92 diesel gallons equivalent (DGE), the roof mount systems can meet the needs of any refuse fleet.

                The internal CNG plumbing was redesigned to significantly reduce potential leak points and the placement of pressure relief devices (PRDs) for fire safety was improved to provide optimal coverage based on where fires are most likely to occur. The new roof mount systems include full-length ¼-inch steel rub rails to defend against tree branch strikes – and to reinforce the entire structure. The aluminum exterior cover features a chamfered design, tool-free removable service access panels, fewer exposed seams and button-head screws to prevent branches from catching or damaging the system.

                The new systems are designed with tool-free access panels to allow for easier inspection and service. And for ease of installation, and in case the system needs to be removed for major vehicle repairs, revised lift points, exposed mounting points, and interfacing tube connections allow the entire CNG system to be mounted or dismounted quickly and safely as a single unit.

                        Sanja Pekic for Offshore Energy 9 Mar 2021 - Rolande, Hoyer team up on boosting LNG fueling accessibility

                        Dutch LNG infrastructure specialist Rolande has partnered up with the logistics company Hoyer Group to make cross-card acceptance possible at LNG/CNG filling stations.

                        Jolon van der Schuit, CEO of Rolande, said: “Rolande pursues the objective of creating an LNG network covering all of Europe. We want to make it possible that driving an LNG truck from Goteborg to Gibraltar is just as easy as driving a diesel truck. To achieve this objective, Rolande relies on its own filling station network while it enters long-term partnerships in the interest of cross-card acceptance at the same time.”

                        Rolande opened its first LNG station in Germany in 2020 in Ulm. The Hoyer Group did it in Soltau in 2020. Rolande operates four stations in Germany and another ten are to be added by the end of the year. A maximum of 24 Rolande stations will be added to the network in 2022.
