Northern Ireland Haulage Specialist Welcomes New CNG-Powered IVECO Stralis NP

Northern Ireland-based Woodside Haulage recently added an IVECO Stralis NP 4x2 tractor to its fleet. Because the truck runs on compressed natural gas (CNG), it will be an excellent fit for the company’s general haulage operations around Dublin where a Circle K CNG refuelling station recently opened. IVECO points out that the Stralis NP can reduce CO2 emissions by 15%, NO2 emissions by 90%, and particulate matter by 99%. That is one reason why Woodside purchased it with help from Gas Networks Ireland’s Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle Fund.

“We welcomed the initiative from IVECO and Gas Networks Ireland to promote CNG as an alternative fuel in Ireland,” says Mark Woodside, managing director at Woodside Haulage. “There is an expectation from many customers that we adopt innovative technology to reduce our environmental impact when we are transporting their goods. The new vehicle also enables us to achieve an important objective within our ISO 14001 environmental management system of using alternative fuels to further reduce emissions.”

Vehicle Specifications

Woodside Haulage’s new Stralis NP features an 8.7-litre IVECO Euro VI Cursor 9 Natural Gas engine that produces 400 horsepower and 1,700 newton metres of torque, which IVECO says “is the same output as its diesel equivalent,” and a 12-speed automated transmission. It also features a Stralis Hi-Way cab, which has “an internal height of close to two meters and more than 10 cubic meters of space for maximum driver comfort,” IVECO adds.
