Cenex to showcase low emission projects at Freight in the City Expo

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.
