The partnership between IVECO and Arcese becomes even more sustainable
with new LNG-fuelled IVECO S-Way trucks
Cutting-edge technology, lower emissions and less noise for efficient and green transport
Thomas Hilse, IVECO Brand President, took the opportunity of his official visit with Matteo Arcese, Executive President of the Arcese Group at the company’s new site in Basiano, to hand over 20 new IVECO S-Way NP tractors in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) version. Also present at the handover were Emanuele Arcese, the Group’s Business Road Freight FTL Director, and Technical Director Carlo La Corte, as well as IVECO’s Business Director for the Italian market, Mihai Daderlat.
The vehicles chosen by the Arcese Group are true game-changers in connected, efficient transport thanks to their advanced technology and outstanding services combined with a highly competitive Total Cost of Ownership. In addition, they benefit from IVECO’s industry-leading natural gas technology, which makes them extremely sustainable.
Matteo Arcese, Executive President of the Arcese Group, commented about the recent expansion of the Group’s fleet: “We’ve always paid special attention to sustainability. Reducing the emissions in our operations is a goal we increasingly share with our customers. Constantly updating our fleet and investing in vehicles that run on alternative fuels are just two examples of the steps we’re taking in this direction. We chose IVECO because we think IVECO S-Ways are some of the best LNG-fuelled tractors on the market for power, autonomy and reliability, which makes them ideally suited to the demands of our heavy, long-distance transport services.”
Thomas Hilse, Brand President of IVECO, stated: “We would like to thank the Arcese Group for placing their trust in our IVECO Brand once again. We admire the company’s far-sightedness: over the years it has turned it into the productive, highly innovative group we see today. IVECO has been Arcese’s fellow traveller on much of its path, forging a relationship of mutual trust and collaboration. We are honoured to be a part of the sustainable growth of its fleet, with a cutting-edge vehicle where technology, services and sustainability work together seamlessly to respect the environment.”
The supplied vehicles are equipped with 460 CV Cursor 13 engines, 12-gear Hi-Tronix gearboxes, predictive GPS and two 440-litre LNG tanks on either side. They feature a predictive driving system and advanced technology that significantly cut down on fuel consumption and emissions, reducing NO2 by 90% and PM by 95%. They are set up to run on biomethane, a fuel generated from existing renewable sources, which makes them a perfect example of circular economy with a 95% reduction of CO2 compared their diesel equivalents. The quiet operation in silent mode, which lowers engine noise to 71 dB(A), paves the way for night-time urban operation. The excellent autonomy – 1600 km for the 540-litre tank version – enables transport across Europe even over long distances. In addition, the IVECO S-Way combines technology and design to provide a superior driving experience, and is testament to IVECO’s and Arcese’s care for the drivers’ well-being.
An important technological asset of the vehicles is the Connectivity Box, which keeps the vehicle connected to specialists from IVECO’s Control Room, who monitor the vehicle at all times. This enables efficient planning of maintenance and repairs and helps prevent unplanned stops. The Ecofleet, Driving Style Evaluation (DSE) and Driver Attention Support (DAS) systems, further contribute to reducing the Total Cost of Ownership.
The new IVECO S-Way NPs are also the very first tractors in Arcese’s brand-new colours. This restyling underlines the brand’s identity, linking it to the company’s history and values while looking ahead to the future, as the company promotes ever more sustainable logistics and transport.
After-sales assistance is provided by IVECO dealer Officine Brennero, which supports customer from its four sites and a network of workshops in the provinces of Trento, Verona, Mantua, Pordenone, Udine, Trieste and Gorizia.
