Clean Energy LNG in Ohio for Dillon+

March 16, 2012 in Uncategorized by rich  |  No Comments

Ohio's first LNG truck fueling station, in Seville, west of Akron, will initially support ten Dillon Transport Peterbilt 384 trucks in Owens Corning service, and will be open to other shippers and carriers as well.

Ohio’s first LNG truck fueling station, in Seville, west of Akron, will initially support ten Dillon Transport Peterbilt 384 trucks in Owens Corning service, and will be open to other shippers and carriers as well.

Clean Fuels Ohio is talking up the opening of Ohio’s first liquefied natural gas fueling station for trucks, a Clean Energy Fuels station hosted by Pilot Flying J in Seville, off I-71 west of Akron.

The new Clean Energy station will initially support LNG trucks deployed by contract freight carrier Dillon Transport to deliver raw materials to Owens Corning production plants (F&F, December 12).

Dillon earlier this year deployed 14 LNG Peterbilt 384s, also with partner Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) for Owens Corning in Irving, Texas.

The Ohio LNG station and Dillon’s ten trucks there were funded in part by Clean Fuels Ohio through a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy Clean Cities program.

Columbus-based Clean Fuels Ohio is hosting opening ceremonies at the Seville LNG station on the morning of April 4, followed by an LNG Trucking Workshop at noon.

Dillon Fielding Ten More LNG Peterbilts

January 2, 2012 in Uncategorized by rich  |  No Comments

Dillon Transport is placing ten more LNG-fueled Peterbilt 384 tractors in Owens Corning service, this time in Lodi, Ohio (west of Akron) and is looking at 20 more natiral gas trucks for Tampa, possibly to be fueled by CNG.

Dillon Transport is placing ten more LNG-fueled Peterbilt 384 tractors in Owens Corning service, this time in Lodi, Ohio (west of Akron) and is looking at 20 more natiral gas trucks for Tampa, possibly to be fueled by CNG.

Chicago-based Dillon Transport has taken delivery of ten more liquefied natural gas-fueled Peterbilt 384 tractors and will place them in service for Owens Corning in Lodi, Ohio next month.

Dillon earlier this year deployed 14 LNG Peterbilt 384s, with partner Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE), for hauling raw materials to an Owens Corning shingle production plant in Irving, Texas.

The Ohio trucks are identical, says Dillon marketing and business development manager Phil Crofts: spec’d via Rush Truck Centers in Los Angeles and upfitted for LNG in Irving, Texas, they have 8.9-liter ISL G engines by Cummins Westport and liquefied natural gas tank assemblies by Agility Fuel Systems using a single HLNG-150 fuel tank by Chart (F&F, March 28).

CNG for Tampa?

“They will be working hard,” Crofts says. “The formula is to put as many miles as we can on them to get the payback on fuel.”

For Clean Energy, the formula is to enlist big-name companies like Owens Corning to get logistical providers like Dillon to use natural gas.

Dillon’s next natural gas deployment is likely to be 20 trucks for Tampa. There, however, the firm may opt for compressed natural gas, Crofts told F&F.

Dillon’s fleet of some 280 tractors and more than 400 trailers serves 25 states and Canada.
