Links Houston-Los Angeles for Interstate 10 LNG , Firm Says,
As It Lists Multiple New Fueling and Construction Agreements
Clean Energy Fuels has opened its “America’s Natural Gas Highway” liquefied natural gas fueling station in El Paso, stating that the facility “enables heavy-duty LNG truck fueling along the transcontinental Interstate 10 highway between Los Angeles, Calif., and Houston, Texas.”
EJ Madison, which is developing its own duel fuel engine technology with Clean Energy support (F&F, April 3), will fuel at the newly-opened LNG station. EJ Madison will haul for Cardinal Health using LNG fuel, Clean Energy said.
“The I-10 from LA to Houston is another link in America’s goods-movement infrastructure now fueling with natural gas,” Clean Energy president and CEO Andrew Littlefair said in a release.
‘One Corridor at a Time’
“One corridor at a time, our nationwide network is opening and changing how America moves.”
Clean Energy also reported in June that
- California’s Chavez Trucking has signed a multi-year fueling agreement as it prepares to deploy 15 heavy-duty LNG trucks to haul bulk aggregate materials such as road-building and construction materials. Clean Energy will support Chavez by opening a public-access LNG station in West Sacramento.
- All American Waste in New Haven, Conn., is expanding its CNG operations with a second fueling outlet. The new Clean Energy station will have two public access fast-fill dispensers and 40 time-fill posts. It’s to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2014.
- Pennsylvania’s Delaware Valley Concrete has taken delivery of the first of five CNG-fueled ready-mix trucks in the company’s initial step to convert its entire fleet of 88 trucks to natural gas. “This fleet will fuel at Clean Energy’s growing public-access natural gas station network in Pennsylvania,” the company said.
“We’re pleased to see this diversification across market segments as natural gas finds more applications on America’s roads,” Littlefair said.
