Cenex will be demonstrating its expertise on the low emission alternatives to medium and heavy goods vehicles by showcasing three of its key projects: ACCRA, Triumph and Dedicated to Gas.
Cenex will also display its offerings in real-world data collection, trial management/delivery, report writing and dissemination – aimed at fleet managers and any organisation with a fleet of medium and heavy goods vehicles.
Project ACCRA is a collaboration between Leeds City Council, Cenex, the Transport Systems Catapult, EarthSense, Dynniq, and Tevva Motors.
It showcases smart-city technology applications that demonstrate real-time emissions control, using live air-quality data to trigger electric hybrid engines to automatically switch to zero-emission mode in heavily polluted areas.
Dedicated to Gas involves trialling over 80 vehicles, ranging from 12-tonnes to 44-tonnes, between a number of logistics fleets such as Asda, Great Bear Distribution, Wincanton and Kuehne + Nagel.
The project will judge the viability of operating spark-ignited natural gas vehicles from an economic, environmental, logistical and fleet management perspective by tracking truck movements and fuel use, and undertaking portable emissions testing (PEMS).
Triumph, managed by Kuehne + Nagel, will involve running low emission trucks in urban-delivery scenarios.
A variety of drive trains will be tested, including range-extended vehicles, battery electric vehicles and unique Dearman liquid nitrogen-fuelled vehicles. The project aims to map the levels of urban pollution.
Cenex is already heavily involved in HGV trials and can offer knowledge sharing opportunities and access to a large network of industry contacts.
