Iveco Stralis NP, named ‘Project of the Year’ at prestigious awards

Iveco Stralis NP, the first natural gas truck for long-haul operations, has been voted “Project of the Year” at the European Gas Awards of Excellence 2017, during the European Gas Conference, the annual meeting for the European gas industry, held in Vienna, which gathers more than 450 key representatives from regional governments and industry leaders and more than 80 gas producers, to address issues related to Europe’s energy future.

Pierre Lahutte, Iveco Brand President, commented: “We are very proud that we have been again rewarded for our commitment to sustainability. Iveco saw very early that the future of transport was in sustainable alternative solutions. Our New Stralis NP is a revolutionary gas truck for sustainable transport: it builds on Iveco’s extensive expertise to take a step into the future: it is the first true long-haul gas truck in the market that offers a real alternative to diesel vehicles and the most sustainable long-distance transport truck ever.”

Within the category “Project of the Year” award, IVECO and other four shortlisted companies presented the latest developments on the newest and most exciting projects in the European gas market. The shortlist included: Zeebrugge’s Second LNG Jetty, Sabine Pass LNG Terminal, Iveco New 400 HP Gas Truck, LNG Dunkerque Terminal, Audi e-gas Project.

Karl-Martin Studener, Iveco Business Director Austria, Central & Eastern Europe said: “Iveco introduced in the market natural gas versions of trucks, vans and buses, and as a result today more than 16,000 Iveco gas powered vehicles are running on European roads. Our NP technology is future-proof in that it provides a solution to polluting emissions with low Total Cost of Operation – and the added advantage of low noise levels, so important for urban missions. And even more, with the growing availability of bioCNG and bioLNG in Europe, all transporters are now able to provide a CO2-Neutral transport and to contribute to European energy independence.”
