11 Scania LNG tractors for Ham Spain road tank
4 May 2020 - ConferenzaGNL
The Spanish HAM Group has acquired 11 new Scania R 410 tractors that will join its own fleet of Transportes HAM, a leading company in the LNG road tank transport sector, specialized in flammable and cryogenic products, such as liquefied natural gas, liquefied gases from the petroleum (LPG), fluorocarbons, sulfur and carbon dioxide, gases from the air (oxygen, argon and nitrogen), and sulfur dioxide.
HAM Group was the first European company to engage in the use of liquefied natural gas in its road tank transport vehicles to reduce the greenhouse effect. In 2000, 10 tractors that used LNG were imported from the USA and since then the fleet has continued to grow.
The entire fleet of vehicles of its subsidiary HAM Transport is exclusively powered by LNG, a fuel that reduces CO2 emissions by 15%, nitrogen oxides by 35% and fine particles by 95%; allowing greater air quality.
The commitment of HAM has been recognized by the main companies in the sector and has been rewarded with various mentions, such as that of Gasnam, the Iberian Association that promotes the use of natural gas in land and maritime mobility, which has recognized the commitment with the Environmental Entrepreneurship Award.
