“This year, industry experts forecast that approximately 2,400 Cummins Westport 12L natural gas engines are scheduled to come off production lines, a figure which is projected to rise to 10,000 in 2014. In addition, ten more of our America’s Natural Gas Highway stations began fueling this year for a total of 19 now in service. 2013 also saw promising developments in the rail and maritime industry’s use of natural gas,” added Littlefair.
The company also announced select deals in the transit sector building on its continually-growing portfolio of natural gas fuel businesses. It signed a multi-year operation and maintenance agreement with Long Beach Public Transportation Company (LBT), which has deployed 64 CNG buses that fuel at Clean Energy filling station.
In addition, Las Vegas-based Whittlesea-Bell Transportation introduced 229 new NGVs, including 92 Transit Connect taxis, 92 Dodge Caravans, 25 large shuttle buses and 20 stretched Cadillac Escalades, which will be the first of their kind. This CNG fleet will refuel at Clean Energy’s six public-access stations in Las Vegas.
