SEAT Delivers Largest Biomethane Vehicle Fleet in Switzerland
(NGV Journal/SPIE Switzerland) The event marking the delivery to SPIE Switzerland Ltd of 30 SEAT Leon ST TGI models running on natural gas/biogas took place on October 17 at the Bern STEP, the biogas-producing wastewater treatment plant that issued the biogas certificates for this vehicle fleet. These bi-fuel vehicles (natural gas and petrol) are generating growing interest among fleet managers, and this sizeable delivery represents a significant first for SEAT. The new vehicles will use to handle quick maintenance service calls.
Each car will run on 100% biogas for its first 1,000 km, thus being 100% carbon neutral. In this connection the Bern STEP will be injecting a sufficient quantity of biogas in the natural gas network to meet the consumption needs for those 30,000 km. These new vehicles will save 21 tons of CO2 over the course of their operating life while also greatly reducing harmful emissions such as particulate matter and NOx. READ MORE
