The heavy transport and logistics industries are increasingly relying on natural gas to plan the future of mobility.
This is proven by the numerous agreements signed by important companies in the country . The latest ones involve different sectors, but the common denominator is the same: in all its forms – from LNG (or LNG, liquefied natural gas) to bio-methane – it is seen as an opportunity to ensure sustainability.
Recently the first five of the new Lidl fleet bio-methane powered vehicles have been presented: Iveco Stralis NP 460CV CNG, which were created thanks to the collaboration with Iveco, LC3 Trasporti and Edison. On the other hand, Snam, Scania and DN Logistica have announced the gradual conversion of their fleet of trucks by DN Logistica, a supplier of Snam specialized in the transport of steel pipes throughout the country, to liquefied natural gas. Scania has already delivered the first vehicles: these are tractors equipped with a 13-liter natural gas engine, with a torque of 2,000 Nm and 410 horsepower, range up to 1,100 km. Eni, Inalca and Havi Logistics have instead signed the first national agreement for the production and use of bio-methane produced from agro-food waste in the meat sector.
