Spanish road freight transporter Transportes Monfort S.A, based in Castellón, is switching nine of its 100-strong fleet to dual-fuel operation, operating on 20-30% diesel and 70-80% liquefied natural gas (LNG), reports El Mundo. When asked why natural gas was selected over electrical power Company representative Manuel Monfort Colom explained that “the advantages in cost, speed and range are infinitely higher in engines adapted to liquefied natural gas compared to electric battery-powered.” Monfort has opened its own CNG-LNG station to service the fleet, also accessible for public motorists.
