Gasum supplies bio-LNG to Metallica’s tour trucks

Finnish state-owned energy firm and LNG supplier, Gasum, delivered bio-LNG to Metallica’s Iveco tour trucks in Finland.

According to a social media post by Gasum on Monday, the trucks stopped to refuel with biogas at its LNG and CNG fueling station in Vantaa, Finland on their way to the concerts in Helsinki last weekend.

Iveco said in a statement last month that it is joining Metallica on the band’s European leg of the M72 World Tour as part of the partnership announced last November in Barcelona.

The firm is partnering with the rock band to deliver “low-emission” transport to all of the 9 stops on the tour in Europe (Munich, Milan, Vienna, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Clisson, Warsaw).

Iveco is providing 10 S-Way heavy-duty natural gas vehicles, and also electric, renewable diesel-powered trucks, and minibuses for the logistics for Metallica staff and concert equipment.

A fuel cell electric truck will also join the ranks of the multi-energy fleet in the final stages of the tour.

Iveco also said it will collaborate with Shell to refuel the vehicles on the routes to the concert venues, relying on the energy company’s network of filling stations, including LNG stations.
