With the delivery of the first cars in Turin, the company’s whole Italgas fleet is undergoing renovation with natural gas powered vehicles by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. In the forthcoming days similar deliveries will be made in Rome and Naples, both being the main cities where Italgas Group currently operates.
Italgas being a major operator in Italy in the natural gas distribution and the third largest in Europe understands the importance of this step taken and how it will create an improved environment. This righteous path will lead to a substantial reduction in harmful emissions into the atmosphere, contributing to making the air in the cities where it operates more breathable.
The conversion of the company’s fleet – the first in Italy to run completely on compressed natural gas (CNG) – is one of the initiatives launched under Italgas 2017-2023 Industrial Plan, which also included the construction of over 120 self-consumption CNG filling stations within the 40 fitting technical areas.
At present, the Italgas Group’s fleet is composed by 2,500 vehicles and over the next 12 months will be replaced with the latest “natural power” models of FCA: Panda, Panda Van, Fiorino, 500L, Doblò, Qubo and Ducato, all of them fuelled by CNG, accordingly with Italgas’ demands and the key of its development to be sustainable and efficient.
