IVECO Presented with NGV Global Industry Champion Award in Rotterdam
IVECO has won the “NGV Global Industry Champion” Award 2017 in recognition of IVECO’s pioneering work in developing a full range of natural gas vehicles over the past 20 years. The award is sponsored by NGV Global, the International Association for Natural Gas Vehicles, and was presented in Rotterdam, Netherlands at the NGV GLOBAL 2017 Gala Dinner on Wednesday, March 22.
“IVECO’s focus on natural gas propulsion, offering methane-powered alternatives (including biomethane) on its entire commercial vehicle product range, significantly contributes to the reduction of transport-related emissions,” said Diego Goldin, Executive Director of NGV Global.
The biennial award recognizes initiatives and programs implemented by companies to develop and improve the natural gas sector around the world. The NGV Global board selected IVECO for the award based on criteria that included the progress made in the use of natural gas as an alternative fuel and the contribution to growing the natural gas vehicle market worldwide. The jury looked at the impact of the activities of the brand at national, regional and global level.
The “NGV Global Industry Champion” award is the latest of numerous national and international awards won this year by the Stralis NP. They include the “Project of the Year” 2017 award at the European Gas Awards of Excellence in Vienna, and the Spanish “Vehículo Industrial Ecologico del Año” (Ecological Industrial Vehicle of the Year) 2017 prize, which came on the back of the recognition received by the Stralis NP at last year’s Green Fleet Awards 2016 in the UK.
