Why transfer to LNG?
The transport market is changing. After 100 years, diesel is increasingly being replaced by alternative, cleaner fuels. Rolande is convinced that LNG is the most sustainable and economical alternative to diesel.
Rolande proves that it is possible, and luckily, we are not alone in this. LNG as a transport fuel is gaining more and more ground. And rightfully so! Who wouldn’t want a cleaner future?
LNG is liquefied natural gas that has an extremely low temperature. As a result, the volume of natural gas is reduced by 600 times, making it, thanks to these properties, extremely suitable as a transport fuel. Driving no LNG has many advantages;
- LNG trucks are even cleaner than Euro-VI diesel trucks.
- LNG trucks are up to 75% quieter than diesel trucks
(PIEK-certified and thus extremely suitable for off-peak distribution).
- Driving on LNG saves costs. Kilometre after kilometre.
In Holland the network of LNG stations is complete. We our now activly investing in expanding our network to Europe.
Also we worked very hard to get our Rolande card accepted on LNG stations from our LNG partners. Therefor you can already rely on a complete LNG network in Europe.
What benefits does an LNG truck have to offer?
Together with you, Rolande will calculate the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of an LNG truck. This depends, among other things, on the purchase price, residual value, interest, maintenance costs and fuel costs. The purchase price of an LNG truck is higher than that of a comparable diesel truck, however, this price is usually more than offset by lower fuel costs.
10% lower fuel costs!
Experience shows that the average consumption of an LNG truck is 10% to 15% lower than the consumption of a comparable diesel truck. An example: while a diesel truck consumes 28.5 litres per 100 kilometres, the consumption of an LNG truck is around 24.25 kilogrammes per 100 kilometres. In addition, the price of a kilo of LNG is significantly lower than a litre of diesel. This adds up to a significant saving in TCO from 100,000 kilometres per year.
