Dennison Commercials and Calor join forces to launch LNG Volvo trucks in NI

In a first for the Northern Ireland transport sector, Dennison Commercials in partnership with Calor have launched the gas powered Volvo truck range at an Open Day event held on 27th November at Dennison Commercials’ Ballyclare head office depot. 

The one-day trade event was a great opportunity for Northern Ireland truck operators to learn more about the gas alternative to diesel and view a gas powered Volvo FH 6x2.

The surge of in interest in LNG in Northern Ireland follows the significant growth of LNG sales in Europe, where the fuel is now well established as the lower cost, lower emission alternative to diesel.  With Calor set to extend their re-fuelling network to Northern Ireland in 2020 and their option of providing back to base refuelling stations for larger fleets, LNG will be an accessible solution for many businesses.


John Comer, Head of Product Management at Volvo Trucks UK & Ireland says, "All told, liquefied gas is the best climate alternative on the market for long and heavy transportation and Volvo's new gas-powered trucks can compete with diesel both in terms of performance and fuel consumption."

Duncan Osborne, CEO of Calor says, ”Calor are committed to the role out of LNG in Northern Ireland.  At Calor we have already started switching our HGV fleet from diesel to LNG to achieve 20% CO2 emission reductions.  Our team is already working with customers to help them make the change to this cleaner fuel.  Longer term, we see the opportunity for businesses to significantly reduce their fleet’s carbon footprint with a switch to BioLNG. This would operate using the same fleet and refuelling infrastructure – future-proofing the investment in this alternative fuel technology.”
