Asda's Avonmouth LNG station open to third parties

BOC, a member of The Linde Group,  said that one of its key accounts, Asda, is opening up its Avonmouth LNG station to third party use, adding to the UK network of LNG stations available to heavy truck operators with LNG fleets.

The new dedicated dual fuel LNG refuelling station at Asda Logistics Services was opened last year at the chill distribution centre in Avonmouth, near Bristol. The station incorporates the latest ‘zero loss’ refuelling technology, developed by BOC, which uses cryogenic cooling to ‘temperature-condition’ the fuel just prior to dispensing, the company said in a statement.

The refuelling station supports the UK supermarket chain’s fleet of 52 dual fuel Volvo trucks at the site and is the latest development in Asda’s transport sustainability strategy, which includes a target to reduce emissions from its transport fleet by 60 percent (between 2005 and 2015).

Dual fuel is an innovative technology that allows natural gas to be used in conjunction with diesel, reducing the total consumption of diesel and cutting CO2emissions. LNG typically accounts for up to 60 per cent of total fuel consumption for a dual-fuel vehicle. Diesel produces around 2.6 kg of CO2 for every litre burned, whereas LNG when used with diesel in a dual fuel vehicle typically reduces CO2 emissions between 10 and 14 percent.
