Iveco will supply the Hegelmann Group with 160 S-Ways
The long-haul company opted for a fleet of alternative fuel trucks
The Hegelmann Group has ordered 150 LNG trucks and 10 Iveco S-Way CNG trucks
The European long-distance transport company Hegelmann Group has placed an order for 150 Iveco S-Way LNG (liquefied natural gas) tractors and 10 Iveco S-WAY CNG (compressed natural gas) tractors. These trucks will expand its green fleet, which already operates 20 Iveco trucks running on LNG, enabling the company to achieve significant reductions in CO2 emissions in recent years.
“The Hegelmann Group has experienced firsthand in its operations how Iveco S-Way LNG trucks provide a viable solution for sustainable transport – so much so that after their initial 20 units, they have now significantly expanded their natural gas fleet with this new order,” says John Venstra, Key Account Manager at Iveco.
“We are proud to support their efforts to decarbonise transport – a commitment we share at Iveco and which has led us to pioneer natural gas technology for over 25 years.”
The Iveco S-Way LNG/CNG vehicles ordered are 4×2 series tractors featuring a large Active Space cab with a raised roofline. They are powered by a 460 hp (343 kW) Cursor 13 natural gas engine that meets Euro VI Step E emissions standards. a total capacity of at least 390 kg of liquid bio-LNG, for a range of up to 1,600 kilometres, depending on the deployment scenario.
The CNG trucks have four gas tanks, each with a gravimetric filling volume totaling 160 kg, mounted on the left and right sides, allowing a range of up to 670 km. The use of biomethane not only allows the Hegelmann Group to significantly reduce its nitrogen dioxide and soot emissions, but also its CO2 emissions by up to 95% compared to a diesel truck – and can even achieve a carbon footprint negative when biomethane is generated. animal waste, says Iveco.
Besides the low consumption, the Hegelmann Group was impressed by the noise reduction of the natural gas engine of the Iveco S-Way LNG/CNG vehicles. According to Iveco, the natural gas engine is up to 50% quieter than comparable diesel engines, making it ideal for use in restricted traffic areas and for night deliveries. Another advantage is that these gasoline-powered Iveco vehicles can also drive in ecological zones which can be exempt from night restrictions.
The new S-Way LNG tractors have been equipped with a variety of customized options aimed at simplifying the daily life of drivers, such as cabin roof insulation, a fully automatic air conditioning system and an auxiliary heating system. , a luxury driver’s seat with lumbar support and three-level heating function. A high-end refrigerator with freezer compartment, including a thermally insulated storage box, as well as two additional USB ports and a 230V power outlet have also been added to each truck.
Custom equipment also includes a tire pressure monitoring system, axle load display and LED headlights.
