36 LNG Truck Buy Lets Clean Energy Open ANGH Stations in Ohio & Florida
Clean Energy Fuels says that a multi-year fueling agreement to support 36 new liquefied natural gas trucks deployed by Raven Transport will allow it to open America’s Natural Gas Highway stations in Jacksonville, Fla., and Franklin, Ohio.
Raven’s 36 new LNG tractors will haul goods for a major U.S. consumer goods company in Georgia and the upper Midwest, Clean Energy says. The new trucks are forecasted to consume approximately 1 million diesel gallon equivalents of LNG per year, “which is anticipated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 2,000 metric tons per year, or the equivalent of removing 350 passenger cars from the road each year.”
“Raven’s success is built on our willingness to tailor logistics to the needs of our customers,” Raven COO Stephen Silverman says in a Clean Energy release.
‘Environmental Stewardship and Cost-Effective Logistics’
“Environmental stewardship and cost-effective logistics are central to the operating principles of our customers, which is why our investment in a heavy-duty natural gas fleet makes sense.”
Raven’s new LNG tractors, expected to be supplied by Volvo, will be powered by 11.9-liter ISX12 G from Cummins Westport.
