ENN Clean Fuels has announced that it has opened a new LNG refuelling station at Albert Heijn’s distribution centre in Zaandam, the Netherlands.
In collaboration with its logistics service provider, Simon Loos, Albert Heijn introduced 30 LNG-powered trucks to its fleet for retail distribution in 2011. Over 10% of all trucks that serve Albert Heijn now run on LNG.
The new LNG refuelling facility will replace ENN’s existing semi-mobile station in Zaandam. The new installation uses the latest state-of-the-art technology and has a storage capacity of 60 000 litres of LNG (sufficient to refuel 150 trucks per day). Together with Simon Loos, ENN has developed an ingenious ‘pump release and registration system’: a specially installed truck connection that wirelessly communicates with the refuelling station to automatically and remotely read all relevant truck, fuel, and driver information. Human intervention is no longer necessary, and vehicle and refuelling information will be 100% reliable and digitally available, in order to make life easier for fleet managers.
The new LNG refuelling station will be used by Albert Heijn charters that serve the region.
