FedEx Freight Wins NGVAmerica Achievement Award Too
Less than a month after announcing a new compressed natural gas fueling facility in support of 100 FedEx trucks in Oklahoma City, Clean Energy Fuels announced that it plans to supply the station with its Redeem brand RNG/renewable natural gas. NGVAmerica presented the NGV Achievement Award to FedEx Freight at a ceremony at the new station on Tuesday.
The Oklahoma City station boasts four-lane fast-fill fueling which, Clean Energy said, “closely replicates a diesel fueling experience.” Also onsite is a time-fill station with six zones and 18 hoses (F&F, September 16).
This week’s event at the FedEx Freight Oklahoma City Service Center was attended by Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, FedEx chairman and CEO Fred Smith, FedEx Freight president and CEO Mike Ducker, Clean Energy co-founder Boone Pickens, Clean Energy president and CEO Andrew Littlefair, and NGVAmerica president Matt Godlewski.
‘A Great Example’
“As we continue to advocate for the industry to legislators in Washington and in the states, FedEx Freight is a great example of clean transportation leadership when it comes to reducing emissions through the use of more natural gas,” Godlewski said as release.
“As one of the largest logistics companies in the world, FedEx does its homework when charting a new course and their decision to open up a major CNG fueling center was no different,” Clean Energy chief Littlefair said in his company announcement.
2.5 Million GGEs per Year
The Clean Energy station for FedEx is powered by six 300-horsepower compressors rated at 608 scfm/standard cubic feet per minute. Able to pump near;y 2.5 million GGE/gasoline gallon equivalents annually, it will initially support 100 Class 8 FedEx trucks but can handle as many as 175.
Clean Energy began commissioning the station in June and it was fully operational on August 12.
