Certas Energy is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the GreenFleet Industry Innovation Award for the work we have done in pioneering the use of Shell GTL Fuel in the UK, a cleaner burning alternative to diesel.
The Industry Innovation Award recognises companies that have introduced a new technology, practice or method that reduces fuel consumption and emissions and demonstrates innovation in its design or implementation. Certas Energy has a nationwide delivery network to supply GTL Fuel across the UK and just last week we announced that the fuel would now be available at our Horsham depot in Sussex. We’re proud to have sold millions of litres of GTL Fuel in the UK so far to customers including local councils, construction companies, transport companies, schools and golf clubs.
In September 2017, we supplied Brakes Group with 70,000 litres of Shell GTL Fuel to switch their fleet of 42 DAF LF55.220 18T trucks operating in the London area from diesel to the cleaner burning alternative. We’re thrilled that Brakes Group has also been shortlisted for the GreenFleet Awards for the Private Sector Fleet of the Year (Medium to Large) category for their use of Shell GTL Fuel. Other customers have also praised the benefits of switching from diesel to Shell GTL Fuel:
The Head Greenkeeper at Sittingbourne and Milton Regis Golf Club said, “GTL is working extremely well for us, we will continue to use it. We have found starting our vehicles up happens first time now where it used to take longer.”
John Page Trailer Ltd added, ‘GTL doesn’t froth up as much as standard Gas Oil, we have found we don’t have to wait for it to settle.”
The winners of the annual GreenFleet Awards will be announced at a ceremony on 23rd November at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
