LNG trucks help reduce carbon emissions

Arla Foods has taken delivery of seven new Volvo FM LNG 6x2 tractor units. The UK’s biggest dairy cooperative currently views bio-LNG (liquified natural gas) as the best option to improve the sustainability of its commercial vehicle fleet.


The FM LNG benefits from Volvo’s approach to gas engine technology, which uses small amounts of diesel to initiate ignition of the air-fuel mixture. This enables the Volvo G13C engine to deliver the same 460 hp and 2,300 Nm of torque as a standard 460 hp diesel, with matching driveability, reliability and service intervals.


Paired with Arla’s milk tanker trailers, the new FMs are expected to cover distances of around 200,000 km per year. (ben)
