Keith Triginer, president & CEO of GE Oil & Gas Canada, commented: “We believe this holistic approach to promoting natural gas vehicles will help companies capitalize on what we expect to be a major game changer in the transportation sector. Although achieving scale remains a key challenge in Canada, we are fortunate to collaborate with companies like Chelsea Natural Gas that are actively working to develop the country’s natural gas fueling infrastructure.”
For Chelsea, several of the CNG In A Box units will feature a specialized cold-weather design to withstand the harsh conditions of the Canadian climate. The technology also features commercial quality GE Wayne CNG fueling dispensers that are payment enabled and as user friendly as traditional diesel dispensers. Besides, CNG fueling through the GE ecomagination qualified solution reduces CO2 emissions by 24 percent (2.2 metric tons per vehicle, per year as compared with gasoline), and its CO, NOx, PM and VOC reduction benefits are even greater.
