India’s Hindustan Zinc and GreenLine pen deal for LNG-powered trucks

India’s Hindustan Zinc has joined forces with compatriot GreenLine to deploy LNG-powered trucks built by Blue Energy Motors.

Hindustan Zinc, a Vedanta group company and India’s largest and only integrated producer of Zinc, said in a statement that the deal includes 180 LNG-powered trucks.

Moreover, Hindustan Zinc looking to reduce emissions from its operations and this move will help reach its target of net-zero emissions by 2050, it said.

Essar Group’s GreenLine said in a separate statement it would invest 2 billion rupees ($24 million) to deploy LNG-powered trucks for Hindustan Zinc’s road logistics.

The company did not provide the number of the trucks in its statement.

GreenLine said its LNG-powered trucks, built by Blue Energy Motors, reduce emissions “significantly” compared to diesel.

The firm has collaborated with multiple firms to make LNG trucking a reality in India, it said.

These companies include India’s top cement maker, UltraTech Cement, and JK Lakshmi Cement.

Earlier this year, Blue Energy Motors 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 these 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.

Blue Energy also recently won an order from state-owned multimodal logistics firm Container Corporation of India (Concor) for the supply of 100 LNG-powered trucks.
