Edison and Iveco have signed a memorandum of understanding to speed up the development of sustainable gas mobility and promote further the use of liquefied natural gas in the road transport sector in Italy.

“Last October we completed the first integrated LNG logistics chain in Italy to support sustainable mobility, this was thanks to a small-scale coastal deposit coming into operation in Ravenna, and an LNG carrier ship dedicated to the supply,” said Nicola Monti, Edison CEO.

“Today we are taking a further step in the strategic path of decarbonisation of transport, in view of the European and Italian climate targets.

“By joining forces and working together with an important group like Iveco, both in Italy and internationally, we will be able to speed up the conversion of fleets and the energy transition process.”

Gerrit Marx, designated CEO, Iveco Group, said the collaboration between Iveco and Edison will give an additional boost to sustainable mobility, which will be reinforced by the gradual introduction of biomethane in the project’s development plan.

The collaboration between will also aim to identify business models capable of offering tailor-made solutions for G-mobility that favour the conversion of fleets to LNG through a total cost of ownership that is competitive compared to traditional fuels and contributes to the gradual introduction of biomethane and bioLNG towards a circular economy and decarbonisation.
