One of Europe’s leading suppliers of renewable biomethane fuel for HGVs is building a new refuelling station at Doncaster.
The public access Bio-CNG station operated by ReFuels under the CNG Fuels brand puts 90% of the UK’s population and four of the country’s largest ports within a 4-5-hour reach of the station. With 76% of all intermodal journeys involving heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) beginning or ending at a shipping dock, the new station will play a fundamental role in enabling major fleets to cut CO2 emissions.
The UK’s largest port by tonnage, Immingham Docks, sits within an hour’s range of the new station, enabling fleets travelling to and from the port to run on 100% renewable biomethane for the first time. Additionally, the site will serve iPort, the UK’s most advanced multimodal logistics hub. Several of ReFuels’ customers already have warehousing and distribution bases in the area, including Amazon, DHL and Lidl.
Philip Fjeld, CEO and co-founder of ReFuels, said: “Our latest site to enter construction in Doncaster is set to transform access to Bio-CNG for fleets travelling to and from the UK’s largest ports. As a key logistics hub in the UK, the Doncaster station will not only expand the reach of low-carbon deliveries for our existing customers, but many major brands and local hauliers looking to make substantial emission cuts of over 90% from fleets.”
The station at Doncaster is owned by a joint venture (JV) with Foresight Group. It will feature 10 fuel pump islands, allowing more than 500 trucks to be refuelled daily with a total capacity of more than 19 million kilograms (kg) of Bio-CNG annually.
