Containerships to fuel LNG fleet at BOC’s Teesport station
BOC, a member of The Linde Group, said that Containerships’s first LNG-powered trucks in the UK are now being refuelled at the company’s new refuelling station in Teesport, Middlesbrough.
Opened recently by BOC, the station is designed to serve BOC vehicles running on LNG and will also be available for third party access by arrangement.
Containerships is trialling dual fuel technology as part of its proposal to create a sustainable logistics solution door to door. With support funding from Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), the company has invested in two dual fuel trucks, with an option to invest in more vehicles following initial successful trials. Containerships is the first third party to sign up to access the station to refuel for its LNG needs, BOC said in a statement.
The station incorporates the latest ‘zero loss’ refuelling technology using cryogenic cooling to ‘temperature-condition’ the fuel just prior to dispensing.
The refuelling station will support BOC’s fleet of 10 dual fuel HGV vehicles transporting industrial gases from the BOC Middlesbrough plant to customers in the surrounding region. Containerships will initially refuel two heavy trucks operating out of the Teesport terminal in Middlesbrough.
