Transport and logistics service provider HOYER Group has strengthened its LNG transport business area in response to the market growth for alternative energies.

For the German company, natural gas liquefied under pressure or cryogenically also has big potential as a fuel, but at present, the company is experiencing increased momentum by using LNG-fuelled trucks for transportation.

“We can make use of many years of experience in transporting and handling industrial, chemical and special gases, and we have equally long expertise in supplying mineral oil,” said Ortwin Nast, CEO of the HOYER Group.

“The fact that we bring gases liquefied under pressure and cryogenically safely to their destination every day is particularly due to our optimally trained drivers and dispatchers.”

HOYER Group relies on weight-optimised, state-of-the-art equipment for maximum safety and economic efficiency and has a variety of road tanker types purely for road transport.

To supplement these, the fleet also comprises various different tank container sizes that are used to transport LNG. The available options include 20-foot, 40-foot and 45-foot tank containers.

The majority of both the tank containers and road tankers are equipped with a pump and measure section. The pump has a high delivery pressure for quick unloading, and the measuring section allows the amount of product unloaded to be accurately measured. 

All of the HOYER Group’s equipment has the necessary approvals entitling the company to load at major European LNG storage terminals. The HOYER Group transports LNG in tank containers worldwide. The majority is moved in intermodal traffic.

LNG plays a twofold role for the HOYER Group: with a view to the future, the use of alternative drive systems is increasing, which sends a clear message about climate protection.

HOYER has already put four LNG trucks and seven CNG vehicles on the road.

Ortwin Nast continued, “As gas transport experts, we ensure the safe transport of all kinds of gases on a daily basis. Expanding our truck fleet by including climate-friendly trucks is a logical consequence and emphasises the values of the HOYER Group.”
