South-east fuel distribution specialist New Era Fuels has taken delivery of its latest DAF CF tanker.
The latest arrival to the Harlow-based firm is liveried in Green D+ HVO brand decals to promote its environmental credentials as the vehicle will use the green fuel.
The latest six-wheel 26-tonne DAF CF 340 FAN vehicle has a 20,000-litre capacity tank.
A further six DAF CF 340s are being built and scheduled for delivery in early 2021.
“The DAF marque has always been an integral part of our operation,” said transport operations manager Brett Jacobs. “For ADR-spec operations, we need a solid, reliable workhorse with a good range of safety features – and the DAF CF ticks all the boxes. The DAF total cost of operation is very competitive too, and the service support from Harris DAF means our fleet is running at optimum uptime.”
New Era CEO Reg Geggus added: “We are delighted that DAF Trucks is sharing a platform with us and making a determined effort to promote HVO.
“As a direct alternative to diesel it makes for a compelling case for truck operators who wish to make a serious reduction to their carbon footprint. We are 100% behind the drive for the UK to go green, and a wholesale switch to Green D+ HVO would deliver an immediate and significant impact.”
He added: “I urge the government to provide greater incentives for the use of Green D+ HVO and to support industries in their efforts to protect the environment and to address climate change.”
William Tebbit, CEO of Green Bio Fuels, said: "Green Biofuels is delighted to be working with New Era Fuels as our National Distribution Partner, delivering the leading clean, low emission, greenhouse-gas saving fuel Green D+ HVO. We also congratulate DAF for being proactive in making a difference to air quality right now."
