Clean Energy Fuels Corporation has opened its El Paso, Texas, America's Natural Gas Highway station.
This enables heavy-duty LNG truck fuelling along the transcontinental Interstate 10 highway between Los Angeles, California, and Houston, Texas. Additional natural gas stations have opened or are under construction to support Clean Energy's growing portfolio of natural gas fuel customers in the heavy-duty trucking, refuse and ready-mix market segments.
Clean Energy has unlocked the I-10 corridor from Los Angeles to Houston for heavy-duty LNG trucks by opening its El Paso fuelling station in Texas. Under a previously announced fuelling agreement, trucking company EJ Madison will fuel at the newly opened LNG station.
President and CEO, Andrew J. Littlefair, commented: “The I-10 from LA to Houston is another link in America's goods-movement infrastructure now fuelling with natural gas. One corridor at a time, our nationwide network is opening and changing how America moves.”
Chavez Trucking has signed a multi-year fuelling agreement with Clean Energy to open an LNG station in West Sacramento, California. Chavez Trucking is scheduled to deploy 15 heavy-duty LNG trucks to haul bulk aggregate materials such as road-building and construction materials. Clean Energy will support this fleet by opening its public access LNG station in West Sacramento.
Adam Chavez, general manager, commented: "For the last 25 years Chavez Trucking has been committed to delivering the best service to our customers. Introducing LNG tractors into our fleet will allow us to continue this tradition of service by using a cleaner and more economic fuel which meets our fleet's demanding weight and range requirements."
