Kranpunkten converts to fossil free HVO100

Kranpunkten’s sustainability work includes a number of clear goals and efforts to reduce the climate impact of the business. As a measure, the company has decided that all diesel powered machines and vehicles should be refueled with the fossil free diesel HVO100.

In Kranpunkten’s rental fleet of 3,500 units, the proportion of electricity and hybrid driven machines is over 80%, which is a result of an early and conscious strategy where environmental and business requirements from customers have been of great importance. The strategy also includes a conversion to alternative fuels for the diesel-powered part.

– Now we take further action by switching to a renewable and fossil free fuel. Compared to regular diesel, this means a significant reduction in our carbon dioxide emissions, says Petra Lampa, Sustainability Manager at Kranpunkten.

The fleets carbon dioxide emissions via ordinary diesel are one of the important environmental aspects for the company. With HVO100 as the fuel, the emissions volume is estimated to decrease by 82% within this area.

The company’s service cars started refueling with the HVO100 as early as the fall of 2019. The conversion of other diesel-powered vehicles and machines to the fossil free diesel is estimated to take one year. Factors that affect are the availability of the fuel itself and the clearance of certain machine and vehicle suppliers.

About HVO100
HVO100 is a 100% renewable and fossil free diesel fuel that can reduce the climate impact by up to 90% compared to fossil diesel. The propellant is a chemical copy of a regular diesel but with a slightly lower density. The environmental and climate performance of the HVO100 depends on the raw material used in the production. HVO can be manufactured from different raw materials and the raw material mix used depends on the product and fuel supplier.
