These companies have signed a multi-year fueling agreement to further support Dillon Transport’s ongoing efforts on heavy-duty natural gas truck fueling. Clean Energy is scheduled to supply Dillon’s growing fleet with approximately 2.5 million additional DGEs of CNG annually and expects to open three additional public truck-friendly natural gas stations in Houston, Texas, Midland, Texas, and West Atlanta, Ga., over the remainder of the year to accommodate the increased fuel sales.
“Clean Energy is privileged to expand our 5 year relationship with Dillon to help enable this fleet’s transition to natural gas,” said James Harger, chief marketing officer of Clean Energy. “Dillon’s early leadership in heavy-duty natural gas truck fueling helped pave the way for numerous other heavy-duty fleets to make the switch to natural gas fuel in Texas and beyond. These new trucks will consume an estimated 2.5 million gallons of fuel per year.”
With this announcement, over 200 of Dillon’s 500-truck fleet will fuel with natural gas throughout Clean Energy’s public-access network in Texas and Georgia. This network includes a station on Dillon’s property in Dallas, built and operated by Clean Energy. One of the upcoming stations will be located in Midland, adjacent to a Pilot Flying J Travel Center and will feature 2 CNG lanes and 2 LNG lanes. The Houston and West Atlanta facilities will each have 2 CNG lanes.
Dillon regularly takes delivery of additional heavy-duty CNG trucks as it phases out its remaining diesel trucks. “Converting the rest of our fleet with Clean Energy as our preferred fuel provider is an extension of our successful natural gas fueling track record,” said Jeff Dillon, president of Dillon Transport.
