BP has launched its vision for ’Fuelling the Future’ at its Hammersmith site in London to coincide with its role as official oil and gas partner of London 2012.
BP is providing fuels and lubricants for the Olympic fleet of over 5,000 vehicles. Some of these will fill up with advanced biofuel blends at a special pump to the rear of the main forecourt, where a series of displays and presentations will showcase the company’s ongoing development of fuels to meet the global demand for lower-carbon energy.
Jackie Fionda, vice president for fuels marketing at BP, said: "Our mission is to provide smarter, more efficient fuel solutions for consumers. We do this by working together with motor manufacturers in a collaboration which helps reduce CO2 from engines through the use of advanced fuels and lubricants that we co-engineer for maximum effect. Working together in this way enables us to bring breakthrough solutions to market such as those we will trial at The Games helping meet London 2012’s lower-carbon goals, together with BMW." BP’s latest generation Ultimate petrol and diesel fuels will be used to fuel the majority of the official London 2012 fleet provided by BP’s future fuels partner, BMW.
In addition, BP’s Castrol, is providing the London 2012 fleet with its range of oils and lubricants.
