Molgás adds Scania LNG tractors to transport gas between Spain & France
The five new Scania vehicles incorporated by Molgás Energía belong to the R series and have a 13-liter, 410 HP engine powered by LNG, which offers a maximum torque of 2,000 Nm. It is Scania’s most powerful LNG engine and has a similar performance to diesel. These trucks feature double tanks, which guarantee an approximate range of 1,000 kilometers.
“This acquisition responds to the desire we had to test this LNG-powered Scania 410 HP tractor to see first-hand its performance on the road and its safety in heavy transport. We know the experience Scania has with this type of vehicle and we were clear that the new trucks that we added to our fleet had to be Scania,” said Juan Menchero Fabián, COO of Molgas Energía.
An adjusted operating cost, a lower noise level and, above all, the possibility of its use with biomethane as soon as it is available, make these vehicles a fundamental tool in the search for a more sustainable transport.
“Molgás is a company committed for many years to sustainability and the environment. In this way, we follow the line of our company policy, helping to achieve the EU’s decarbonization objectives and helping to improve air quality so that our future generations can enjoy a better world,” added Menchero.
These new vehicles, which make fixed routes between Madrid, Barcelona and the south of France transporting LNG, have been delivered through the official Scania Hispania dealer in Madrid.
