CNG Iveco Daily a natural fit for Northern Gas

Iveco Daily Natural PowerNorthern Gas Networks (NGN) has taken delivery of two more CNG-powered Iveco Daily Natural Power 3.5-tonner dropside chassis cabs. They join the one which became part of NGN’s 600-strong fleet in June 2017. Supplied by Brighouse-based Iveco dealer Northern Commercials, the newcomers are powered by compressed natural gas and produce 12 per cent fewer NOx emissions and 76 per cent less particulate matter than the diesel equivalent.

Daily Natural Power (35S14) is powered by a 3.0-litre natural gas engine that produces 136hp and develops 350Nm of peak torque between 1,500rpm and 2,730rpm. It has the same power, torque and response as its diesel equivalent, but is 50 per cent quieter, making it perfect for NGN’s 24hr operations. They also benefit from much of the same technology found in Iveco’s new Daily Blue Power LCV range.

Iveco Daily Natural PowerBoth of the newcomers feature dropside bodywork by Advance Commercial Bodies and have a reversing camera system, payload indicator and roof-mounted beacons to increase operational safety and visibility. They will be among the highest mileage vehicles on NGN’s fleet, clocking up around 15,500 miles annually during their projected six years in service. They will be refuelled at a CNG station in the Aire Valley, with NGN opening its own dedicated refuelling facility later in 2018.

“We see natural gas as the answer to a lot of air quality issues,” said Mark Squires, NGN’s commercial manager, Fleet and Facilities. “Iveco was able to demonstrate its benefits and how well suited this fuel is for our operations. Our drivers were very impressed with our first gas-powered Daily, making it the vehicle and fuel of choice to replace two of our older diesel models. Reducing vehicle emissions is a key focus for us and Iveco has given us the confidence to use more gas-powered vehicles in our fleet.”
