Scania’s Argentinian unit delivered a fleet of LNG-fueled trucks for the Mendoza-based logistics company Transportes Andreu.
The delivery marks a milestone for Argentina as it is the country’s first-ever fleet of LNG-fueled trucks, according to a Scania statement.
Scania said it has been working with Enargas, the national gas regulator in Argentina to import gas-powered vehicles.
Julián Rosso, head of sales engineering at Scania Argentina, said, “It is a proven technology and there are already more than 2,500 Scania trucks operating in Europe, which means that from a technological point of view, the product is an efficient, safe and aligned solution with Argentina’s energy matrix.”
Transportes Andreu will use the LNG-powered trucks to transport liquid natural gas, Scania said.
