Accelerating Business – it’s a Roadgas Upgrade for Sheffield Veolia

Roadgas has broken new ground, securing a contract win that sees another self-owned station installed and up and running at Veolia Environmental, Sheffield.

This station replaces the existing facility with a state of the art LCNG gas vehicle refuelling station. The new facility, with faster refuelling, enables the 12 strong RCV fleet to refuel each vehicle in minutes on return from service. Roadgas design engineers worked on the existing LCNG station, providing an upgraded model that now supplies all the refuse fleet’s refuelling needs.

The refuelling station is also equipped with the Roadgas remote monitoring facility linking in with the 24/7 UK-wide monitoring of stations by Roadgas engineers.

The Veolia deal signifies an upgrade to a more modern way of operating LCNG stations. This is significant for both Roadgas and the wider gas vehicle refuelling industry, as it sends out a confident message that not only do Roadgas build state of the art refuelling stations, but also own and operate them.

Roadgas MD, Richard Barski comments: “We are proud and delighted to open another self-owned LCNG gas vehicle refuelling station, with Veolia Environmental in Sheffield.

Having previously operated a number of gas vehicle refuelling stations, as well as building over 15 stations in the past two years – including the UK’s first public refuelling station on the M1 at DIRFT, our aim is maximum uptime for the station, a rapid response for handling any issues and an efficiently planned maintenance schedule.

This is significant for Roadgas and the industry as a whole because we’re well known for building gas vehicle refuelling stations, however, now we can say we own them too. As displayed by the Sheffield tank, which proudly displays our Roadgas company logo. The contract is a great platform for our expertise and experience to branch out.”

Veolia Enviromental, who approached Roadgas for their services, had contractually tendered that a number of RCV vehicles operating in Sheffield were to be environmentally friendly. With Government funding behind it, Veolia Sheffield have invested in their vehicles and services with a twelve-year agreement.

Working in conjunction with Sheffield City Council, this ambitious project sees the joint organisations putting 12 refuse collection vehicles on the road, running purely on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
