LNG refuelling network enhanced
05 February 2019
Calor has upgraded its Aust LNG facility, near Bristol.
Part of Moto’s Severn View Services, the Aust facility is located off the M48 motorway by the Severn River Crossing. It is a vital refuelling stop for LNG-fuelled vehicles using the M4 corridor to travel to London or elsewhere in the UK, and has been upgraded to consider the requirements of mono-fuelled trucks.
Mark Gilks, transport specialist at Calor, adds: “Leading truck manufacturers are predicting that, by the early 2020s, vehicles powered by natural gas could account for 20 per cent of all HGVs sold. This growing market share highlights the obvious benefits of choosing LNG to power long-haul HGVs now and into the future.
“As a low-carbon, competitively-priced fuel solution with good availability, LNG has a big role to play in helping the transport and logistics sector hit its environmental targets. Ensuring our publicly-accessible LNG refuelling network, which is the largest in the UK, can best support the demands of HGVs is crucial to this aim.”
