Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has been awarded a contract to construct three compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in Ontario for Union Energy Solutions Ltd. Partnership (UES), an unregulated affiliate of Union Gas, an Enbridge Company, a major Canadian natural gas storage, transmission and distribution company.
The stations – which will be in London, Windsor and Napanee – will make fueling with CNG possible along Highway 401 in Ontario, one of the busiest highways in North America and an important trade corridor between Canada and the U.S., notes Clean Energy.
The three stations will add to Clean Energy’s network of over 530 natural gas fueling stations that it owns and/or operates in 42 U.S. states and other provinces in Canada. The new stations are expected to initially distribute an estimated 600,000 gasoline gallon equivalents per year.
“Entering into this agreement with Union Energy Solutions will enable us to provide more outlets for clean natural gas, which, in turn, will help reduce toxic and unhealthful diesel gas emissions in the region,” states Chad Lindholm, vice president of sales at Clean Energy. “This network of CNG stations will enable heavy-duty truck fleets to confidently travel these routes, ensuring they have sufficient fuel as they cross Canadian and provincial borders, as well as traveling into the United States.”
