Asda Logistics Services has further invested in Triscan’s Fuel Management equipment at its newly opened distribution centre in Avonmouth, Bristol, in an effort to strengthen its commitment towards reducing carbon emissions.
Triscan’s Apollo 2 LNG Fuel Management Systems will monitor both Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) and diesel. This is the latest development in Asda’s transport sustainability strategy, following its commitment to deliver a 10 per cent absolute carbon footprint reduction by 2015, which includes a target to reduce emissions from its transport fleet by 60 per cent (between 2005 and 2015).
Working in partnership with BOC, the UK’s largest supplier of compressed and liquefied gases, Asda has built the LNG refuelling station to minimise environmental impact and costs. The station uses ‘zero loss’ refuelling technology to ‘temperature-condition’ fuel just prior to dispensing. The new depot also features a range of carbon and energy efficiency initiatives, including rainwater harvesting, combined heat and power, and occupier lighting.
Alongside this initiative, Asda has also invested in Triscan’s Automatic Mileage Capture Device, KisskeyOBD™, to ensure that the refuelling process is simple, quick and exceptionally accurate.
As a UK based systems and software manufacturer, Triscan is the market leader in fuel management. Using the latest technological advancements, the Triscan employed team of dedicated engineers and Project Managers, based across the UK, are always close to hand to respond to customers’ needs efficiently and effectively.
Users of Triscan’s Fuel Management Systems include haulage and logistics companies, bus, coach and other commercial vehicle operators, the emergency services, local government authorities and major industrial undertakings.
