Second Agreement Adds Florida Fuel to Tennessee Sites
Pivotal LNG has forged a second agreement to supply liquefied natural gas for UPS trucks. The AGL Resources unit will supply fuel in Jacksonville, Fla., augmenting a ten-year, 500,000-gallon-per-month agreement reached in April 2013 to supply LNG for UPS facilities in Knoxville and Nashville, Tenn.
“They will arrange trucking from our liquefaction plants,” says Pivotal LNG fuel and storage president Steve Cittadine.
UPS emerged last year as an industry leader in LNG-power over-the-road trucking, announcing an aggressive plan for hundreds of LNG trucks at ACT Expo in Washington in June, and raising the ante in October: $50 million to build nine more LNG fueling stations for a total of 13, all to be operational by the end of 2014, supporting approximately 1,000 trucks (F&F, October 14).
Macon and Trussville for Jacksonville
The deal with UPS marks the first Pivotal LNG for a transportation application in Florida, Cittadine told F&F.
“We’re excited about the Florida prospects,” he says.
Pivotal has access to LNG from five production facilities. Fuel for Florida will most likely be supplied from parent AGL Resources plants in Macon, Ga. and Trussville, Ala.
