ENVIRONMENT: Engen's Green Effort
Recent Western Cape Business News
ENGEN’s pursuit of a ‘greener’ bulk transport fleet and operation was boosted recently with the purchase of two environmentally friendly vehicles from Scania.
According to Engen transport operations manager Llewellyn Snyman, the bulk transport vehicles both contain Euro 4 spec engines, which run on ADO 50 ppm diesel. They also sport exhaust gas recirculation and particulate filter technology which translates into fuel consumption savings.
“These are the first vehicles with reduced emissions technology to be owned by Engen. Not only do they offer great fuel savings and advanced technology but they also have safety features such as driver airbags and pre-tension seat belts, which are unique in the market,” says Snyman.
These vehicles will be operating out of Engen’s Cape Town and Langlaagte terminals. Additional ‘green’ vehicles’ will be purchased in accordance with the company’s fleet replacement programme and roll-out of ADO 50ppm nationally.
The Engen Transport Department will be monitoring the performance of these two vehicles and, pending their efficiency and sustainability, will pursue further roll-out.
