Main event sponsor, Calor Gas, in association with Mercury Fuel Systems Ltd will be on hand throughout the show at their stand in the Centre Paddock, to highlight the benefits of Calor Liquefied Petroleum Gas – LPG/Diesel dual fuel technology as a viable, low emission fuel solution for the transport and haulage sector. There will also be an opportunity to see the technology in action with two converted DAF Trucks on display.

The Calor dual fuel system works by replacing up to 30% of the more expensive and carbon-intensive primary fuel (diesel) with the less expensive and lower carbon-content secondary fuel, LPG/AutoGas. This dual-fuel technology has already delivered proven, significant economic and environmental benefits to many businesses.

Tony Dent from Mercury Fuel Systems commented, “The experience of our customers shows that introducing LPG as a dual fuel will significantly reduce CO2 and other emissions. Fuel savings of around 10 – 15%, with a reduction of around 6% of the CO2 generated, are common.”

Pascal Manley, Fleet Manager of Linwoods, has converted some of the larger units in their fleet to run on the dual fuel system. “We are always looking at ways to keep our running costs down and do our bit for the environment. Converting to the diesel/LPG system has helped us to do both. We’ve worked closely with Calor and Mercury on the conversions and continually monitor the system.  Conversion was simple and very successful and we plan to switch more of our fleet,” he said.

Calor’s Mobile Solutions Manager, Damien Shirkie commented, “We are delighted to be involved in the Mondello Truck Show this year. Road haulage is of critical importance for Ireland’s export-led economy, but greater energy and cost efficiencies are increasingly required. Calor has recognised this and, as a result, transport energy has become an increasingly important part of our business.”
