Jacky Perrenot Group, one of the leading European transport logistics operators, has signed a new long-term partnership with IVECO for 250 Stralis NP (Natural Power) 460. This builds upon previous orders for IVECO natural gas trucks, including one placed in June 2016 for 250 Stralis NP 400.
With a commercial relationship spanning some 40 years, the two companies are aiming for a target fleet of 1,000 natural gas trucks by 2020. This latest order foresees 550 IVECO natural gas trucks within the transport operator’s fleet by the end of 2018.
The new Stralis NP 460 is fitted with the IVECO Cursor 13 NP engineered by CNH Industrial’s powertrain brand FPT Industrial, which is protected by two patents. This proprietary technology delivers a 99 percent reduction in Particulate Matter, a 60 percent reduction of Nitrogen Oxides and a volume level of less than 71 decibels, in comparison with the current Euro VI limits. In terms of autonomy, the truck’s double LNG tank version ensures a record range of up to nearly 1,000 miles.
