Envoy Energy Fuels Inc. and Truk-King Logistics Inc. have started construction on a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Fort Erie, Ontario.
The CNG cardlock station, located at 1521 Bowen Rd., will include four fast-fill lanes for heavy-duty vehicles and two dedicated lanes for filling large-capacity tube trailers for Envoy Energy’s mobile CNG refueling operations.
The facility, located along Ontario’s QEW highway and just minutes from the U.S.-Canada Peace Bridge, has the capacity to fuel Class 8 trucks in approximately five minutes and over 200 trucks each day. The opening of the station is planned for April.
Based in Fort Erie, Truk-King is a privately owned and operated dry-freight trucking company, providing cross-border transportation services to North American customers. In early 2018, Truk-King became the first third-party carrier in Ontario to adopt CNG Class 8 trucks. Truk-King plans to have its entire fleet of Class 8 trucks running on natural gas by the end of 2019, and the new station will provide the company access to another source of CNG fuel.
“I am thrilled that we are able to help Truk-King solve their problems with fuel costs and diesel emissions,” notes James Ro, president of Envoy Energy.
The station’s partners also include ComTech Energy, Enbridge Gas Inc. and Natural Resources Canada.
