Clean Energy Fuels Corporation has signed a multi-year fuelling agreement to support Dillon Transport’s leadership in heavy-duty natural gas truck fuelling.
The agreement was signed at the American Trucking Association Management Conference and Exhibition.
Clean Energy is scheduled to supply Dillon’s growing fleet with approximately 2.5 million additional DGEs of CNG annually and expects to open three additional natural gas stations in Houston, Texas, Midland, Texas, and West Atlanta, Ga., by the end of 2014 to accommodate the increased fuel sales.
“Clean Energy is privileged to expand our 5 year relationship with Dillon to help enable this fleet’s transition to natural gas,” commented James Harger, chief marketing officer of Clean Energy. “Dillon’s early leadership in heavy-duty natural gas truck fuelling helped pave the way for numerous other heavy-duty fleets to make the switch to natural gas fuel in Texas and beyond. These new trucks will consume an estimated 2.5 million gallons of fuel per year.”
Over 200 of Dillon’s 500-truck fleet will use natural gas throughout Clean Energy’s network in Texas and Georgia. This network includes a natural gas station on Dillon’s property in Dallas, Texas, built and operated by Clean Energy.
Jeff Dillon, President of Dillon Transport, added: “The successful operation of our Dallas Clean Energy station and our current natural gas fleet operations have proven a lower total cost-per-mile than our diesel fleet. Converting the rest of our fleet with Clean Energy as our preferred fuel provider is an extension of our successful natural gas fueling track record.”
CNG and LNG
The Midland, Texas, station is located adjacent to a Pilot Flying J Travel Center and will feature two CNG lanes and two LNG lanes. The Houston, Texas and West Atlanta, Ga., stations will each have 2 CNG lanes.
