Representatives from Canadian American Transport (C.A.T.), U.S. Gain and Independence Fuel Systems (IFS), along with local and regional dignitaries, celebrated the grand opening of the newest GAIN Clean Fuel® and FastFlow CNG station in Laredo, Texas. The station will provide the North American carrier with alternative fuel to support C.A.T.’s growing fleet of CNG trucks. Nearly a third of C.A.T.’s fleet of 350 tractors have been converted to CNG.
“We are proud to make an investment in our future and be a leader in creating sustainable transport by opening our fifth CNG station with U.S. Gain and first station with IFS,” said Daniel Goyette, president of C.A.T., Inc. “By converting our fleet to CNG, we have made a significant move to becoming more environmentally-friendly and creating fuel price stability.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for us to further our mission of helping build America’s energy independence by providing high quality CNG stations,” said Kevin Russell, CEO at IFS. “We are proud to have FastFlow CNG serve this region. Together, we can continue to encourage carriers to convert to CNG.”
The Laredo location, like all other GAIN Clean Fuel and FastFlow stations, will provide easy access and fast-fill capabilities, and it will be open for use by other fleets and the general public. “GAIN Clean Fuel is helping fleets and operations throughout the U.S. and Canada make the conversation to CNG,” said GAIN Clean Fuel General Manager Bill Renz.
