Public transportation, also Udine aims at methane

SAF puts 21 new CNG buses into service

Public Transportation Company of Udine, SAF, is upgrading its fleet. On Wednesday it presented 21 new methane-fueled buses of the Euro 6C standard. The event was attended by City Mayor of Udine, Pietro Fontanini, and Regional Councilor for Infrastructure and Transportation, Graziano Pizzimenti.
The 21 new buses, almost one third on the SAF fleet in service, “enhance the city image through an increasingly advanced and state-of-the-art sustainable mobility which relies on methane for the reduction of consumption and emissions of particulate matter into the atmosphere,” underlines a message.
“This new fleet of great technological capacity, respects the environment and meets the needs of the disabled for it being sensitive to sustainable mobility,” commented Councilor Pizzimenti who added that “21 new methane-fueled buses are a sign of attention to environmental protection and containment of consumption by limiting the emissions into the atmosphere.”
SAF started testing methane in road vehicles in 1984 and that year at its new headquarters the company installed a compression plant of 400 kW and a capacity of 1,200 kg/h methane output, with 80 sequential charging columns for buses and a centralized system of recording and management of refueled vehicles.
