U.S. Gain, a division of U.S. Venture in charge of the GAIN Clean Fuel brand, is partnering with Great River Energy to co-locate three GAIN Clean Fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) stations with Great River Energy's CNG stations.
Two of the stations will be co-located at existing Great River Energy CNG locations: one in West Burlington, Iowa, and the other in Wood River, Ill. In addition to adding the GAIN Clean Fuel brand, these two facilities will be converted to provide access for other carriers and the general public.
The third GAIN Clean Fuel/Great River Energy CNG facility will be constructed in Easton, Pa., in 2016 and will also be public.
U.S. Gain says the new partnership will fuel W.W. Transport's fleet of CNG trucks and also link these three locations with the network of GAIN Clean Fuel stations throughout North America.
“We're excited to be partnering with such a well-respected international brand,” comments Great River Energy President Kyle Weuve. “Being linked to the GAIN Clean Fuel network provides great opportunities, and we look to continue to build on our partnership moving forward.”
W.W Transport currently has a fleet of 80 trucks operating on CNG, with plans to expand to 120 trucks year's end.
“These three new stations are on significant trucking routes and will provide significant advantages to W.W. Transport and our other partner carrier fleets,” says U.S. Gain General Manager Bill Renz. “We're proud to be working with W.W. Transport and Great River Energy to bring these new stations online.”
