TG Lynes introduces HVO vehicles and storage in sustainability drive

HVO is the latest fleet fuel of choice for the business to continue to deliver its commitment to achieving net zero.

TG Lynes chooses HVO to deliver its commitment to net zero achievement

Leading heating, plumbing and air movement materials supplier TG Lynes has taken the next step on its road to net zero by introducing HVO-fuelled vehicles to its fleet and installing an HVO tank

TG Lynes has started using HVO in two of its 18 tonne lorries which were running on diesel, making them 90 per cent more carbon efficient and has also installed the 10,000-litre HVO tank at its Enfield base for easy on-site refuelling.

HVO is a cleaner alternative to diesel and is manufactured from 100 per cent renewable and sustainable waste, including vegetable oil, tallow and used cooking oil.

Andrew Ingram, General Manager at TG Lynes, said: “We’re delighted to have introduced HVO to these two Euro 6 vehicles in our fleet.

“HVO is much better for the environment than diesel and the projected carbon saving through the course of 2023 is more than 12.5 tonnes. To put that into perspective, an average car would emit the same amount of carbon were it to drive 23,000 miles – or once around the world.

“TG Lynes is committed to achieving the ultimate goal of net zero by making tangible changes across all areas of the business. This move is just one part of that pledge.”

Taking decisive action

Andrew said the business was considering rolling out HVO across its entire fleet of delivery vehicles throughout 2023, potentially saving 220 tonnes of carbon.

TG Lynes offers a daily delivery service to sites across London, the South East, East Anglia and the Midlands, with the first vehicles on the road for 6am. As well as the HGVs, the delivery fleet also includes 3.5 tonne vans and an electric bike.

TG Lynes’ company vehicles are already 95 per cent hybrid or fully electric and the business has its own EV charge points on site. The business also has a 110kw solar system installed on the roof of its headquarters, providing more than 50% of the energy required for operations.

Andrew added: “From fuel combustion to being sustainable when purchasing electricity and recycling to choosing ethical suppliers, we are taking decisive action to ensure we are doing everything we can to lower our impact on the environment.

“Sustainability is not just a buzz word for TG Lynes – it has authenticity.”
