HAM expands fleet of LNG-powered trucks

Spain’s HAM Group is expanding its fleet of LNG-powered trucks with 50 new Volvo tractor units.

HAM and its unit Transportes HAM already took delivery of 25 trucks and expect to receive the rest in 2024.

According to a statement by HAM, this is the Volvo FH model with 460 HP and 500 HP with the latest driving assistance safety features.

These LNG-powered trucks offer the same performance and drivability as their diesel models, it said.

They can be used in regional and long-haul heavy transport operations.

With the new 225 Kg tank and the new 500 HP engine, autonomy is increased by between 10-14 percent, the firm said.

HAM has a network of more than 129 LNG and CNG service stations, located on the main transport routes in Spain and the rest of Europe.

The firm plans to build a network of LNG fueling stations for vehicles in Peru as well.
