bp and the Navarre logistics company Lodisna promote “the largest decarbonisation project” for a truck fleet in Europe


The Spanish subsidiary of the British oil company will supply, from its facilities in Tafalla (Navarra), one million litres of HVO100 sustainable fuel to the Imárcoain-based company specialising in international transport. The latter thus becomes one of the first players in its sector to use this type of biofuel for its long-haul international routes.

HVO100 is a fuel that is compatible with existing engines. Lodisna will therefore be able to use it in its compatible trucks on its international long-haul routes without the need to modify the vehicles. At the same time, it represents an important step in the logistics company’s ambition to reduce CO2 emissions from its transport logistics, the promoters of the agreement between the two companies reported.

“Our aim is to support customers in the energy transition,” confirmed Olvido Moraleda, bp’s vice president of Mobility and Convenience for Southern Europe. In this regard, he recalled that the British oil company’s fleet customers “can already fill up with HVO100 at more than 170 service stations in Europe through the bp Routex card”. He also announced that, by 2024, its aim is to extend its offer “to more fleet customers” and to consider new sites such as the one in Tafalla throughout its distribution network in Spain.

For his part, Igor Beguiristain, CEO of Lodisna, valued “having promoted one of the largest European decarbonisation projects in the road transport sector”. In his view, this agreement is proof of “the continuous work in innovation” carried out by his company.
