Jamaica to get LNG-powered vehicles
Jamaica is set to get Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-powered motor vehicles.
The vehicles are being brought to market by IGL Limited in partnership with American energy and logistics company New Fortress Energy.
“IGL will introduce the first LNG-powered vehicles to Jamaica, a move which forms part of the company’s strategic plan to reduce its carbon footprint and widen its commitment to creating a safer environment,” IGL said in a media advisory.
A launch ceremony is scheduled for 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 3 with a keynote address by Minister of Science, Energy, and Technology Dr Andrew Wheatley.
On its website, IGL, which is owned by the Rahamut Group, says it has over 100 years experience in the petroleum marketing business and that its LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) operations extend across the Caribbean region.
“For more than four decades, IGL has been Jamaica's leading distributor of LPG and the primary manufacturer and distributor of industrial and medical gases serving a range of industries”.
