These aspects are not only beneficial to truck owners, they also ensure greater social acceptability.
Savings are therefore proportional to fleet size. Generally, the installation of a private refuelling station requires that at least 10 collection trucks be on CNG. For fewer than 10 trucks, the use of a public refuelling station is recommended in order to generate enviable profitability.
The CNG refuelling process is similar to that of traditional fuels. Depending on the fleet's needs, refuelling can be done fast or slowly, during off hours. No specific competency card is required to carry out refuelling.
Fuelling collection trucks with biomethane is a fantastic project involving the citizen, the municipality and the waste collection company.
2 Baseline consumption level of 2,000,000 litres of diesel divided among 3 subcontractors ≈ 650,000 L and 18 trucks per subcontractor. Annual baseline consumption level of 35,000 litres of diesel per truck. Class 8 trucks with Cummins ISL-G engine (100% CNG). Surcharge for CNG version: $50,000 (90 diesel gallon equivalent tanks) + trucking energy-conservation subsidy (‑$15,000). Price of diesel @ $1.00/litre. Price of CNG includes: commodity, Gaz Métro services, refuelling equipment depreciation, maintenance and electricity. Private refuelling: construction of an on-site CNG filling station + garage upgrade; slow fill (8 hours for all trucks). Public refuelling: use of a third-party-operated CNG filling station + garage upgrade; fast fill (15 minutes per truck).
The savings calculations provided in this study are estimates and are provided for information purposes only. Under no circumstances should they be interpreted as a guarantee of savings to be achieved or as a representation in this regard by Gaz Métro, its employees, agents or representatives.
