Iveco has received its first contract order for 50 Stralis Hi-Ways powered by LNG. The vehicles will be used by LC3, a company specialising in temperature-controlled transport and container lorries.
Following the opening of the first ENI Liquefied Natural Gas Station in Piacenza, LC3 was the first company in Italy to purchase the Stralis LNG vehicles.
The Stralis Natural Power LNG is powered by a 330 hp Cursor 8 CNG Euro VI engine. It is fitted with a 510 litre cryogenic LNG fuel tank and 4x70 litre CNG tanks ensuring a fuel range of over 750 km.
Iveco is a leading European manufacturer of natural gas vehicles: over 200 LNG vehicles are currently in circulation throughout Europe, mainly in Spain and the Netherlands.
