India’s Blue Energy wins order from Concor for 100 LNG trucks

India’s Blue Energy Motors has secured an order from state-owned multimodal logistics firm Container Corporation of India (Concor) for the supply of 100 LNG-powered trucks.

Blue Energy did not provide the price tag or any other details regarding the deal in a statement issued on August 29.

Concor develops multimodal transport and logistics infrastructure to support India’s growing domestic and international trade.

The company is “making strides in its commitment to sustainability and decarbonization of its operations by deploying Blue Energy Motors LNG-powered fleet of trucks at its strategic hubs to facilitate containers’ first and last-mile movement,” the statement said.

Moreover, this partnership showcases the growing importance of sustainable logistics in India and represents Concor’s commitment to cut emissions by aligning itself with the government’s larger climate change goals, Blue Energy said.

Earlier this year, Blue Energy launched the country’s 100th LNG-powered truck at its manufacturing facility in Pune.

FPT Industrial, a unit of Italian manufacturer Iveco, is supplying engines for the LNG-powered trucks as part of a deal the two firms signed in July 2022.

After that, the two firms unveiled the first LNG truck powered by FPT’s 6.7-liter engine in September, while Iveco also agreed to buy a stake in the Indian firm.

With 280 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque, BE 5528+ tractor is the most powerful LNG-powered truck available for the Indian market, Blue Energy said.

The truck has the first 990-lt cryogenic LNG tank in its class, giving it an up to 1400 km range on a single fill, it said.
