Tesco Ireland replaces diesel with biomethane

The retailer has taken delivery of 50 biomethane fuelled trucks to be deployed on its country-wide distribution network. The Scania trucks will immediately replace 50 diesel units, cutting down tailpipe carbon emissions by up to 90%.


The biomethane trucks will be operated by Tesco’s transport partner DHL and used to transport produce to stores from the retailer’s distribution centres in Dublin, Ireland.


Each truck has a range capacity of 700 km on a full tank of biomethane gas, allowing the vehicles to supply any of Tesco's 177 stores without refuelling. Each vehicle will complete an average of 15 to 20 truckloads of store deliveries per week. (ben)
