Howard Tenens has installed two additional natural gas refuelling stations in the UK, bringing the total to three so far with others planned across its transport network.
Over the past 12 months the company has installed gas refuelling stations at its Andover, Boston and London (Aveley) depots to power its dual-fuel HGV fleet, which is running on natural gas and diesel. Tenens will also offer gas for sale from its sites.
Group environmental director Catherine Crouch said: “There is limited gas refuelling infrastructure in the UK and we have had to install our own gas stations to ensure the success of our low carbon transport strategy. Both Boston and London Aveley stations are grid connected as we expect there will be a virtual supply of biomethane in the future – injecting gas into the grid from anaerobic digestion plants and drawing off fuel at the point of demand.”
