UK provider of liquefied natural gas Calor and Dennison Commercials have launched the gas-powered Volvo truck range at Dennison’s Ballyclare head office depot.

The surge of interest in LNG in Northern Ireland follows the significant growth of LNG sales in Europe, where it is now well established as the lower cost, lower-emission alternative to diesel.

Calor said that it was set to extend its re-fuelling network to Northern Ireland in 2020. As a result, the company would provide refueling stations for larger fleets and make LNG an accessible solution for many businesses.

John Comer, head of product management at Volvo Trucks UK & Ireland, said: “[…] liquefied gas is the best climate alternative on the market for long and heavy transportation and Volvo’s new gas-powered trucks can compete with diesel both in terms of performance and fuel consumption.

Duncan Osborne, CEO of Calor, added: “Calor is committed to the role out of LNG in Northern Ireland. […] we have already started switching our HGV fleet from diesel to LNG to achieve 20 percent CO2 emission reductions.

Long-term, we see the opportunity for businesses to significantly reduce their fleet’s carbon footprint with a switch to BioLNG. This would operate using the same fleet and refueling infrastructure – future-proofing the investment in this alternative fuel technology.
