Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has opened a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station at the Orlando International Airport.
Located at 6155 Cargo Rd. in Orlando, Fla., the station is open to the public 24/7 and can accommodate a variety of natural gas vehicles ranging in size from passenger cars and airport support vehicles to heavy-duty trucks.
‘With over 57 million tourists annually, Orlando is one of the most important tourist destinations in the United States,” says Mark Riley, vice president of Clean Energy Fuels. “There is a tremendous opportunity to utilize natural gas in transportation to cut emissions, improving air quality throughout the region.”
The CNG station is under a 20-year lease agreement with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.
“Orlando International Airport is committed to pursuing and promoting green initiatives that reinforce our reputation as a conscientious community partner,” says Phil Brown, executive director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “This station is an important component of our sustainability effort and is an environmentally responsible way to ensure the natural beauty of Central Florida is protected for future generations.”
Clean Energy notes it also has a public-access CNG station at the Tampa International Airport, located in Tampa, Fla.
