ENN Canada says 1,000 trucks have filled up at its new liquefied natural gas (LNG) station in Chilliwack, British Columbia, during the first two months of operation.
‘With 1,000 trucks filled in under two months, it is clear the B.C. trucking industry has embraced LNG as a safer, cleaner and cost-competitive alternative to diesel,’ says Henry Cai, CEO of ENN Canada. ‘On average, LNG is 30 to 40 percent less expensive than diesel and produces up to 25 percent less emissions.’
The Chilliwack station, which is located on Highway 1 and is open 24/7, counts heavy-duty fleets such as Arrow and Sutco as anchor customers. The full-service station is operated by trained attendants and technicians, ENN Canada notes.
‘We have high hopes for the LNG initiative in the long term and look forward to continuing this partnership with ENN into the future,’ says Tim Bell, vice president and general manager of Arrow.
ENN Canada currently operates four LNG fueling stations: two in British Columbia and two in Ontario.
