Scania gas engines are known for their fuel efficiency. a typical semi-trailer truck with a gross weight of up to 40 tonnes can drive 1,100 kilometres without refuelling under favourable conditions. With twin fuel tanks on a rigid truck, the range is approximately 1,700 kilometres. With biogas in the tanks, CO2 reduction can be as much as 90 percent compared to a similar diesel engine.
Driving profitability with a fleet of Scania 410 hp gas trucks
Valencia-based Delgo Transport specialises in refrigerated transports at both a national and international level. Today, just a year after acquiring their first liquefied natural gas truck, half of the company’s fleet of 110 trucks runs on LNG, and, so far, Managing Director Félix González likes what he sees. “When we found out Scania made gas trucks, 80 percent of the decision was made,” he says. “And the results we’ve had have been better than what we had on paper. Better consumption levels, and fewer emissions of course.”
Climate change is undeniable, and is largely driven by the release of carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere. That is why Scania incorporates sustainability into each tailored solution we offer and everything we do, from research and development to products and services.More about sustainability More about sustainability
