Your Needs

Fuel is the main operating cost of a heavy vehicle. Most carriers have applied the smartest possible solutions to keep the cost of fuel down, in a constant quest for competitiveness.

The road transport sector has the second highest energy consumption after the tertiary residential sector. It represents nearly 30% of the final energy consumption in France and is responsible for one third of CO2 emissions.
The Grenelle Environnement provisions for transportation aim to reduce current emissions of the sector by 20% by 2020.

To improve the economic and environmental performance of your fleet, you can look for an alternative fuel to diesel. Natural gas is the only fuel that offers an effective solution to all transportation issues.

Your requirements

Approximately 11 million vehicles in the world run on natural gas. Natural Gas for Vehicles (NGV) is stored onboard as compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG). Gas engines have demonstrated high performance and reliability. Goods and passenger vehicles from automakers such as Iveco, Volvo Trucks and Mercedes among others have been in service in several countries for years, and have proven their reliability and performance.

Taking into account all operating costs (including depreciation of the investment of the vehicle purchase), natural gas replacing diesel allows for savings ranging from 10% to 20% depending on fleet size, vehicle use and price variations of the two fuels.

Greenhouse gas emissions of natural gas vehicles can be 25% lower than their diesel-powered counterparts. In addition, they emit practically no local pollutants (NOx and fine particles) and their low noise emission level is compatible with the restrictions that cities increasingly impose on urban deliveries.

When storing the gas onboard in liquid form (LNG), gas-powered trucks can achieve an operating range comparable to conventional diesel trucks. In addition, the AXÈGAZ fuel solution guarantees the availability of gas wherever your trucks need to refuel.

The AXÈGAZ solution

The AXÈGAZ team takes care of :

  • Installing an LNG satellite plant in a strategic location selected by you and AXÈGAZ to serve your transport flows.
    The LNG station consists of a storage tank, of one or more pumps (depending on your needs) and a volumeter to control your consumption.
  • Financing the LNG station, its maintenance and automated refueling.
    You can thus focus on optimal utilization of your fleet and your flows.

As an option, AXÈGAZ can equip your station with a CNG (compressed natural gas) pump to also supply vehicles that store gas on board in compressed form.

Questions to ask

To properly consider an LNG project, some basic points need defining :

  • Automaker,
  • Number of trucks involved,
  • Annual mileage,
  • Duration of operation,
  • Location of the site,
  • Consumption and autonomy,
  • Type of route.
