Penske Truck Leasing has completed upgrades to its facility in Carson, Calif., to provide maintenance and repair services for natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
Penske partnered with the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) within the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD), which provided funds in order to support Penske’s facility upgrade. MSRC’s co-funding of this project provided Penske the opportunity to enhance its service facility to safely maintain NGVs.
The facility modifications included specific ventilation infrastructure in order to ensure maintenance staff can safely work on NGVs. Proper maintenance infrastructure is essential for supporting alternative fuel vehicles, notes the company.
