Clean Energy Fuels promoted its NGV Easy Bay maintenance facility modification product for natural gas vehicle operators at ACT Expo 2015 in Dallas, and at the same time showed one of its two new demonstration trucks.

NGV Easy Bay was introduced last year (F&F, October 14) as “the first code-compliant fabric barrier system utilizing an industrial curtain designed for quick, cost-efficient installation and operation… the lowest cost separation and vapor containment system available.”

ACT Expo attendees got an idea how the Clean Energy system can sequester a natural gas truck at an existing facility.

Fleet Trials Planned

Clean Energy’s display truck for ACT Expo was a state-of-the-art Peterbilt 579 with 135-diesel gallon equivalent back-of-cab CNG cylinder array by Agility Fuel Systems.

Clean Energy has also purchased an LNG-fueled Freightliner Cascadia, with twin rail-mounted tanks by Chart Industries holding 156 DGEs.

The two will be used to let fleet operators test natural gas, at no charge, for several days.

‘Put Your Load on the Back’

“We already have a list of fleets that have signed up,” says Clean Energy VP Chad Lindholm. “We’re giving it as a tractor and you can put your load on the back.”

Lindholm notes that in order to deliver optimal fuel economy and performance, both demo trucks have a direct drive transmission, partial chassis fairings, side extenders and a three piece roof fairing.


The next ACT Expo has been scheduled for May 2-5, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.
