Scania is ready to enhance its biogas offer by launching some new solutions, as shown during the Italian exhibition Transpotec held a few days ago in Milan. The Swedish manufacturer responds to increasing customer interest for its gas-powered trucks by expanding its assortment of tanks and specifications. More into details, new CBG and LBG tank options mean improved fuel-carrying capacity, longer distances and new opportunities for rigids with advanced body builds.
Scania to push on biogas and related infrastructure
Indeed, gas vehicles are becoming increasingly popular all over Europe, but markets such as Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Eastern and Central Europe are at the forefront. The infrastructure of filling stations for liquefied biomethane and other types of fuels for gas vehicles has definitely reached a critical mass, and not only in Europe. By adding various tank solutions to its existing offering, Scania aims to demonstrate its strong support for renewable fuels as an important part of driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system.
«Increasing the potential tank capacity for different applications takes out what used to be an Achilles heel in the eyes of some prospective customers», said Stefan Dorski, Senior Vice President and Head of Scania Trucks. «Our expanded offer, increased flexibility of the chassis layout and the many new gas filling stations spells a bright future for gas-minded customers. And their range anxieties can now finally be put to rest».
Among Scania’s latest additions to its gas solutions portfolio are: LBG tanks for ranges up to 1,400 km; CBG tanks for ranges up to 750 km; 80-litre CBG tanks that can be combined, freeing up one frame side and CBG tanks in a rack behind the cab.
