Iveco and Uniper have released a joint statement claiming that they have opened Germany’s first LNG truck fuelling station in Ulm. The station will be used for endurance tests in trials of innovative engine concepts for long-haul transportation.
Eckhardt Rümmler, the Chief Operating Officer of Uniper, said: “the construction of this fuelling station in Germany represents a first, important step in the development of innovative, environmentally friendly fuelling alternatives in long-haul transportation. Working in further partnerships, we want to build a fit-for-purpose network of LNG fuelling stations in Germany and selected neighbouring countries in the next few years. We are thus making an important contribution toward improving environmental performance and noise reduction in road transportation.”
The Business Director at Iveco Magirus AG, Sascha Kaehne, added: “We are pleased to join forces with Uniper in taking the first step toward a true alternative to diesel in Germany at the Ulm development site. The Stralis is now the first LNG vehicle in Europe that is fully capable of long-haul transportation from the perspective of drivers and business owners.”
