Linde deploys 20 LNG trucks for alt-fuel delivery operation

Published February, 07 2013

Linde North America, a provider of liquefied natural gas and other alternative fuel solutions, has expanded its commitment to LNG fuel with the deployment of 20 additional LNG Class 8 trucks used to deliver cryogenic gases to Linde’s customers in North America.

Last year, Linde deployed three LNG trucks to test the performance and economic viability of LNG fuel. The success of the initial program set the stage for the current expansion.

“Our experience with our LNG trucks has been very positive,” says Fred Kinkin head of supply for Linde North America.  “Natural gas burns more cleanly than diesel and is more economical, so we were able to save money on fuel while reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.  Given the size of our fleet and our commitment to environmental sustainability, this reduction in emissions and costs is significant.”
