Hoyer will expand its Petrolog fleet in the UK with 26 new Scania P 450 vehicles, in early 2019.
The order includes eight Hydrapak and 16 Non-Hydrapak trucks.
Further vehicles will be tendered earlier next year as part of Hoyer’s growth strategy.
As well as updating the fleet with newer, more reliable trucks, drivers will have the benefit of new features including Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) as standard.
As part of the deal, all vehicles will be placed on a Fixed Price Maintenance package for five years.
“We are pleased to announce the arrival of new additions to our Scania fleet. Scania have always offered an exceptionally reliable vehicle whilst also bringing the environmental benefits of returning excellent fuel economy and, importantly, this vehicle is always a popular choice with our driver workforce,” Allan Davison, operations director of Hoyer Petrolog in the UK.
The New Scania P450s join an existing UK fleet of more than 500 Hoyer vehicles operating nationally across its UK sites. Scania vehicles currently make up 10% of the company’s UK fleet.
Matthew Cox, senior fleet engineer with Hoyer Petrolog added: “The drivers have only trialled the Scania demonstrator truck so far, but all feedback has been positive. They have commented that it is comfortable, quiet and powerful.”
