The Coral Gables-headquartered energy company, with years of experience in the exploration and transportation of natural gas, has formed a consortium of leading global players to address the energy needs of Miami-Dade County as it transitions to cleaner and cheaper fuel for its fleet of vehicles.
The joint venture will provide CNG fueling solutions to Miami-Dade County’s fleet of vehicles and develop a network of private and public fueling facilities across the State of Florida. “Our community has taken a step in the right direction by converting to natural gas, which will reduce carbon emissions, save Miami-Dade County taxpayers money, and serve as an economic driver for our community,” said president of MetroGas Daniel Mac-Crohon.
For this initiative, MetroGas has partnered with EMT Madrid, a Spanish bus operator that owns Europe’s largest CNG station. The consortium also includes ET Environmental, a US-based powerhouse that has completed 1,300 Energy-related projects ranging from waste-to-energy to transit and waste management fueling facilities. Lastly, the team counts on the unparalleled assistance of Enrema, a US natural gas producer base in Tennessee with offices in Miami, FL, to provide competitive natural gas prices.
“As a local company with deep ties to the community, we are excited to bring the world’s most impressive CNG operator to our backyard, Miami-Dade County. EMT Madrid’s extensive experience in alternative energy, and its nearly seven decade history operating a mass transit system make us uniquely positioned to take on this important task,” added Mac-Crohon.
