Ocado opens a natural gas refuelling

As part of its £3 million investment in alternative fuel technology, Ocado has opened a natural gas refuelling station. The station is located at its customer fulfilment centre in Hatfield.

Graham Thomas, Ocado’s fleet services manager said: “By investing in gas-powered vehicles, and in our first on-site refuelling station, we’re future-proofing our fleet and our business,”

He added: “Emissions from compressed natural gas are cleaner than Euro VI standards which start to take effect with the London low emissions zone next April, and will soon be followed by a further 32 clean air zones.”

The new station is created and powered by Gasrec with a 10-year commitment contract. This initiative aims at reducing the company’s trucks CO2 emissions by 29% when replacing existing diesel vehicles.

James Westcott, chief commercial officer at Gasrec said:
“It’s fantastic to be working with a company so focused on improving the sustainability of its fleet. The move firmly backed by government, which has committed to supporting natural gas vehicles with a duty reduction until 2032.”
