H Parkinson powers up with 460hp gas Ivecos

H Parkinson Haulage has added seven 460hp Iveco Stralis NP (natural power) CNG 4x2 12.9-litre Cursor 13 tractor units to its fleet.

They replace seven equivalent 400hp 8.7-litre Cursor 9 models and the move follows 30 months of running the latter, lower-powered versions, each of which has covered 550,000km, leading the firm to proclaim itself one of the first UK operators to rack up more than half a million km in individual gas trucks.

Supplied by Walton Summit Truck Centre in Preston, they are used for 160-mile daily trips between an RDC in Chorley, Lancashire, and a production plant in Barrow-in Furness, transporting toilet roll.

They are in service 24-hours a day on multi-driver shift patterns pulling a total payload of 8 tonnes on 15.6m curtain-sided Longer Semi Trailers carrying up to 60 pallets.

Refuelling takes place at CNG Fuels’ Leyland gas station, half a mile from the Chorley RDC, and the 460hp trucks are said to have the longest oil-change intervals in the industry, at 90,000km.

“Our gas trial has been a true partner approach and Walton Summit’s gas knowledge, advice, support and service around the clock has been invaluable,” said HPH director Steve Sugden, “being one of the first operators to adopt gas power has proven a positive experience and we are confident our Stralis NPs have had a neutral impact on the environment.”

“TCO costs have also been very favourable. The cost of gas versus diesel has been significantly lower during the past 30 months and it will be interesting to see how the higher power Stralis NP 460s perform on the Chorley Barrow-in-Furness route.”

The firm has also taken delivery of four diesel Stralis 460hp steering mid-lift 6x2s – the first non-gas Iveco trucks on its fleet – which will be used on the same contract as the gas vehicles.
