Clean Energy Fuels Corporation announced the completion and opening of 27 natural gas fuelling stations in the first half of the year. Nine of these stations are part of the truck-friendly America’s Natural Gas Highway network.
Upgraded equipment and additional compression capacity have also been added to 10 existing stations to keep pace with growing demand for natural gas fuel. Additional fuelling and station development agreements representative of Clean Energy's growing portfolio of natural gas fuelling customers were also announced.
Raven Transport intends to expand its fuelling agreement by deploying 33 additional heavy-duty LNG trucks to serve the Southeast. To support this growing natural gas fleet, Clean Energy will open its Albany, Georgia, public-access LNG station.
Raven is currently fuelling at Clean Energy's natural gas stations in Franklin, Ohio; London, Ohio; Walton, Kentucky; and Jacksonville, Florida.
G&P Trucking has scheduled the deployment of five heavy-duty natural gas trucks. This natural gas fleet is expected to double to 10 trucks by the end of 2014.
Clean Energy will support this natural gas fleet by opening its Charlotte, North Carolina, America's Natural Gas Highway station in August. This station in conjunction with Clean Energy's Latta, South Carolina, station bolsters the region's LNG capability to serve key goods-movements hubs in the Southeast such as the South Carolina Ports Authority.
"More of our customers are pursuing natural gas fuelling solutions to meet sustainability goals. As Clean Energy continues to open its natural gas highway you can bet our trucks will be fuelling on it," said Clifton Parker, President of G&P Trucking.
