GAIN Clean Fuel Celebrates Opening of Public CNG Station in Quebec
Representatives from C.A.T., U.S. Venture Gain Fuel Canada, and Gaz Métro, along with local and regional dignitaries, celebrated the grand opening of the first GAIN Clean Fuel public CNG station in Quebec, Canada. The GAIN station will provide C.A.T.’s growing fleet of CNG trucks with alternative fuel. Nearly a third of C.A.T.’s fleet of 350 tractors operates on CNG.
“The fight against climate change pushes us to innovate and rethink the way things were done in various sectors, including the transportation sector which emits close to 45% of total greenhouse gas emissions in Quebec,” said Mr. Robert Poëti, Quebec Minister of Transport.
This is the second of five GAIN Clean Fuel station locations to open in partnership with C.A.T. The first station opened in Mississauga, Ontario, on October 26, 2015. The other three station locations include Laredo, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Scranton, Pennsylvania. The Coteau-du-Lac location, like all other GAIN Clean Fuel stations, will provide easy‑access, fast-fill capabilities and will be open for use by other fleets and the general public.
