Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has issued a pair of announcements from the liquefied natural gas (LNG) refueling segment of its business: the opening of a new LNG station in El Paso, Texas, and another to come in West Sacramento, Calif.
The site in El Paso – a part of the America's Natural Gas Highway network of Clean Energy LNG stations – adds to the availability of natural gas as a transportation fuel along Interstate 10. El Paso-based trucking firm EJ Madison LLC, which works on behalf of customers such as Cardinal Health, will be among the anchor fleets using the new LNG station, according to Clean Energy.
Also, Dixon, Calif.-based Chavez Trucking has signed a multi-year LNG fueling agreement with Clean Energy, which will result in the addition of another public-access LNG facility in West Sacramento.
Chavez Trucking is rolling out an initial 15 heavy-duty LNG-powered trucks that will haul road-building and construction materials, using an estimated 210,000 DGE of LNG annually.
