Z’s diesel ex­haust fluid net­work grows

Motor Equipment News - - DIESEL INDUSTRY -

For the many large fleets in New Zealand aim­ing to meet emis­sion re­duc­tion tar­gets through the use of SCR tech­nol­ogy, Z Energy’s ex­pand­ing diesel ex­haust fluid net­work is great news.

As one of the coun­try’s most com­pre­hen­sive net­works, Z con­tin­ues to make life on the road eas­ier for driv­ers of SCR en­gines, with its Z DEC (Diesel Emis­sion Cleaner) now avail­able on pump at 16 strate­gi­cally lo­cated truck stops across the coun­try.

Z’s gen­eral man­ager, com­mer­cial, Ni­co­las Wil­liams, says Z’s ex­pand­ing Z DEC net­work is a de­lib­er­ate move to make it even more con­ve­nient for driv­ers to fill up both their diesel and ex­haust fluid at one stop.

“We know just how big an in­vest­ment SCR tech­nol­ogy is for those com­pa­nies with fleets of all sizes across New Zealand, and we know how im­por­tant it is for those cus­tomers to be able to safely, re­li­ably and ef­fi­ciently fill up with both diesel and Z DEC.

“Since this time last year, we’ve con­tin­ued to in­vest in our Z DEC net­work, grow­ing to in­clude two more sites in the South Is­land, with another on the way in the North.

“Our Z Washdyke truck stop, in Ti­maru, opened with Z DEC in late Au­gust, and our Z Tem­ple­ton truck stop, in Christchurch, was online early Septem­ber. Z’s third new site, in Ro­torua, is planned to open in the com­ing months.”

Ni­co­las says all of Z’s truck stops of­fer fast and re­li­able pay­ment ter­mi­nals, and are fit­ted with fast­flow diesel pumps to en­able quick turn­around times for driv­ers.

Now, at the 16 truck stops where the ex­haust fluid is also avail­able, diesel and Z DEC can be dis­pensed and paid for in one stop.

“By en­sur­ing both diesel and Z DEC are avail­able at one stop, and with the added con­ve­nience of be­ing able to pay for both with Z Card, we’ve been able to cre­ate some real ef­fi­cien­cies for both driv­ers and the com­pany’s back of­fice teams.

“Nearly half of our Z DEC truck stops are co-lo­cated with Z ser­vice sta­tions, so that one stop ex­pe­ri­ence means driv­ers can com­bine re­fu­elling and com­fort stops – grab­bing a hot Z Es­press cof­fee or some of the de­li­cious food on of­fer at the same stop.”

For Z, the de­ci­sion to in­vest in its Z DEC net­work came down to sup­port­ing its cus­tomers’ chang­ing needs and their drive to meet emis­sion re­duc­tion tar­gets.

“Many ma­jor en­gine man­u­fac­tur­ers have cho­sen SCR tech­nol­ogy as a way to meet emis­sion re­duc­tion tar­gets and, as part of Z’s com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity, in­no­va­tion and sup­port­ing com­mer­cial road trans­port, so have we.

“Z DEC is just another way Z is look­ing to de­liver on its en­vi­ron­men­tal and sus­tain­abil­ity ob­jec­tives. It’s about of­fer­ing a prod­uct that more of our cus­tomers are look­ing for as they turn to cleaner emis­sion ve­hi­cles.”

Z DEC is now avail­able on pump at Z’s truck stops at Sanson, Sylvia Park (Mt Welling­ton), Tu­rangi, Whangarei, Grove Road (Blenheim), Seav­iew (Welling­ton), Hamil­ton, Hewletts Road (Mount Maun­ganui), Sawyers Arms Road and Tem­ple­ton (Christchurch), Washdyke (Ti­maru), Dunedin, High­brook (East Ta­maki), Po­keno, Napier and Roscom­mon Road (Wiri).
