Express Mondor, U.S. Venture GAIN Clean Fuel Canada and Gaz Métro announced the building of a public CNG station in Lanoraie, the ninth to join 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. The new facility will provide Express Mondor with access to an alternative fuel to fuel its new truck fleet, reducing the company’s energy expenses and the environmental impact of its 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 chose to partner with GAIN Clean Fuel to build this station to secure our position at the leading edge of our industry. Moreover, 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,” said Billy Mondor, vice-president of Business Development at Express Mondor.
“We are delighted with our agreement with Express Mondor and at the prospect of the building of this new public CNG station in Lanoraie,” said Marc-André Paquin, director of Business Development at GAIN Clean Fuel Canada. “The new station will be located alongside Highway 40’s very busy trucking corridor, which connects Montreal and Quebec City by way of Trois-Rivières, and will thereby offer the benefits of CNG to other carriers that wish to use an alternative fuel.”
