CLEAN ENERGY OPENS THREE CNG STATIONS, SIGNS FUELING AGREEMENTS
On Tuesday, Clean Energy announced fueling has begun at its Amarillo, Texas, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, America’s Natural Gas Highway (ANGH) stations to serve UPS’ growing heavy duty LNG truck fleet. UPS deployed six heavy duty LNG-powered trucks that will fuel at the Oklahoma City station, and an addition four trucks will also begin fueling at this location in the coming weeks. These tractors are expected to consume approximately 300,000 DGE of LNG per year. Ten LNG trucks have begun fueling at the Amarillo station under its previously announced bulk fueling agreement.
Clean Energy also announced two fueling agreements with Dillon Transport, a Tennessee-based truckload carrier, and carrier EJ Madison, a Texas-based transportation and logistics company. EJ Madison deployed a fleet of 20 long-haul dual-fuel LNG trucks on routes spanning Clean Energy’s ANGH network. EJ Madison intends to expand this fleet with an additional 30 dual-fuel LNG trucks in the coming months. The vehicle conversions are being done by Clean Fuel Technologies in El Paso, Texas. Once
fully deployed, the fleet is expected to consume approximately 336,000 DGE of LNG per year. Dillon Transport, a long-time customer of Clean Energy, has deployed an additional eight CNG trucks and signed a fueling agreement to fuel at Clean Energy’s Fair Oaks Dairy station in Indiana. The fleet will be hauling raw materials for Owens Corning and is expected to consume approximately 240,000 DGE of CNG per year.
Also this week, Clean Energy announced fueling has begun at its newest publically accessible CNG station located at JFK International Airport within the newly-opened JFK multi-fuel travel plaza. The new station will service a variety of fleet vehicles, including heavy and medium duty trucks as well as shuttles and taxis that service the airport. Ferrara Brothers Building Materials will fuel some of its ready-mix concrete mixers at the new station, as will the New York Department of Sanitation’s municipal refuse fleet. The travel plaza is open 24/7 and accepts credit cards and fleet fuel cards. Other alternative fuels available include E-85, EV charging stations, as well as conventional gasoline and diesel. Clean Energy is now operating at every international airport in the Northeast and currently operates over thirty public stations in the Tri-State area.
In addition, Clean Energy announced this week that it has commenced production and sales of “Redeem” (biomethane) fuel at its Memphis biomethane plant. The facility is located at the Republic Services’ North Shelby landfill outside of Memphis. The facility is forecasted to achieve an annual production rate of approximately 3.7 million GGE of Redeem once fully operational.
