Spanish refrigerated carrier will use 10 LNG Scanias for routes to Sweden
The ten new Scania trucks incorporated by Transportes Cabrera belong to the R series and have a 13-liter, 410 HP LNG-powered engine, which offers a maximum torque of 2,000 Nm. This is Scania’s most powerful LNG engine, which has diesel-like performance.
These new vehicles, which have a full five-year repair and maintenance contract, have an elevated sleeping cabin and a Highline high roof, ideal for long haul. The trucks will be used to make international routes to the Nordic countries; the routes are being organized based on the network of natural gas stations available.
Low emissions, together with a lower noise level, make these vehicles a fundamental tool in the search for greener transport. “It is the alternative to diesel to seek more sustainable transport, and Scania is our ally in this adventure, since 90% of our fleet is Scania and we have been working with them since 1982,” said José Antonio Cabrera, managing director of the company.
“We have counted on the advice of Scania to incorporate these first natural gas vehicles, which responds to the request of some of our Nordic clients to contribute to sustainable transport. These vehicles will make routes to the north of Europe, especially to Sweden”, added Cabrera.
Transportes Cabrera, based in the Almería town of Huércal-Overa, is a pioneer in international routes. It has been dedicated to transportation for more than 50 years, and it currently has a fleet of more than 150 refrigerated transport vehicles.
