French Retailer to Open RNG Stations, Deploy Additional Natural Gas Trucks
Carrefour has started rolling out its bioNGV service stations in France to further expand its fleet of vehicles running on renewable natural gas. The company’s aim is to have nine service stations to support 200 trucks operating in Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux and Lille by the end of 2017. The first of these service stations to open (in the Ile-de-France region) is the result of a partnership with Air Liquide.
The opening of the Servon service station (in the Seine-et-Marne département) near the Brie-Comte-Robert logistics hub is the first stage of this ambitious initiative aimed at delivering goods to France’s major urban areas.
