GAIN Clean Fuel Breaks Ground on CNG Station to Support 50 Truck Fleet
Express Mondor, U.S. Venture GAIN Clean Fuel Canada and Gaz Métro announced construction has begun on a public CNG station in Lanoraie, Quebec, that will support Express Mondor’s new natural gas fleet that will include 50 trucks. The station will help Express Mondor, a road transport company operating throughout North America, reduce its energy expenses and the environmental impact of its business activities.
Construction work on the new station, which represents an investment of $3.5 million from GAIN Clean Fuel and Express Mondor, has begun and should be complete before the end of 2016. The station will be located along Highway 40, on the north side of Lanoraie’s industrial park. Gaz Métro will supply the station with natural gas.
“We have undertaken to acquire 50 new CNG trucks over the next few years to continue to provide stellar service to our customers across North America while also improving our energy and environmental performance,” says Billy Mondor, vice-president of Business Development at Express Mondor.
Thanks to its CNG-powered trucks, Express Mondor will save considerably on fuel costs and see a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions up to 25 percent with its new trucks. Express Mondor has also updated the visual identity of the trucks with the motto “powered by passion.”
“Gaz Métro is delighted to see the new GAIN Clean Fuel station become the ninth in the Blue Road: a network of public natural gas fueling stations that allows carriers to roll with less emissions while offering advantages in terms of both energy efficiency and pump prices,” said David Vincent, Gaz Métro’s Director of Business Development and Renewable Energy.
