Iveco has received its first contract order for 50 Stralis Hi-Ways powered by liquefied natural gas.
The vehicles will be used by LC3, a company specialising in temperature-controlled transport and container lorries that has continuously strived to equip its fleet with alternative technological solutions capable of reducing the vehicles’ environmental impact.
Following the opening of the first ENI LNG Station in Piacenza, LC3 was the first company in Italy to purchase the Stralis LNG and use them on the country’s roads.
The Stralis Natural Power LNG is powered by a 330 hp Cursor 8 CNG Euro VI engine. It is fitted with a 510 litre cryogenic LNG fuel tank and 4×70 litre CNG tanks ensuring a fuel range of over 750 km. Because of these factors, the vehicles can be used for medium/long-term distances.
