BOC, a member of The Linde Group, has announced that it is to install an LNG heavy goods vehicle (HGV) refuelling unit in the UK this spring. The LNG fuel unit will be installed at Exelby's Golden Fleece Service station on Junction 42 of the M6 south of Carlisle in Cumbria.
This will be BOC's first LNG fuel unit on an existing fuel forecourt for HGVs in the UK.
The LNG refuelling unit uses cryogenic cooling to ‘temperature-condition' the fuel prior to dispensing. It also incorporates BOC’s ‘zero loss' refuelling technology.
BOC's LNG technology uses nitrogen to keep the liquid LNG in the fuel tank at a constant temperature.
Exelby’s Managing Director, Michael Exelby, said: "Low carbon is an important part of Exelby Service's environmental agenda and we are delighted to be able to offer LNG fuel to our HGV customers."
Mark Lowe, LNG Business Manager, BOC, added: "BOC is proud to be working with Exelby as a partner on this important, environmentally friendly alternative to diesel. Our partnership with Exelby further demonstrates BOC's long-term commitment to play an active part in the transition to low-carbon transport. This is the first part of our plan to provide LNG on-road fuelling across the UK's HGV road network."
