Clean Energy announced the completion and opening of 27 natural gas stations in the first half of the year, nine of which are truck-friendly America’s Natural Gas Highway stations. Among its recent initiatives, the company will open a public-access fueling station in Albany, Ga., to support Raven Transport’s expanding NGV fleet as it is deploying 33 additional heavy-duty LNG trucks to serve the Southeast.
Raven is currently fueling at Clean Energy’s natural gas fueling stations in Franklin, Ohio; London, Ohio; Walton, Ky.; and Jacksonville, Fla. Once fully deployed, the additional vehicles are forecasted to consume over 700,000 DGEs of LNG annually, and are expected to be on the road in December 2014.
Moreover, Clean Energy will service G & P Trucking of Gaston’s five heavy-duty natural gas trucks, expected to double to ten by the end of the year, with a new fueling station at Charlotte, N.C., which will open this month. This facility in conjunction with Clean Energy’s Latta, S.C., station bolsters the region’s LNG capability to serve key goods-movements hubs in the Southeast such as the South Carolina Ports Authority.
“More of our customers are pursuing natural gas fueling solutions to meet sustainability goals. As Clean Energy continues to open its natural gas highway you can bet our trucks will be fueling on it,” said Clifton Parker, president of G & P Trucking.
