New LNG/CNG Stations to Be Built in Dallas
Fleet operators and even private owners of vehicles in Texas that work on the first two fuels mentioned above can soon take advantage of a new fueling station capable of providing CNG and LNG.
To be built on the property of the contract freight carrier Dillon Transport by Clean Energy and to be mainly used by the transporter for its own needs, the new station will also be open for all those in need of refueling.
The station will give Texans a chance to profit from the lower prices for this type of fuels (they both cost less than diesel) and feel confident that they have helped their state's air become cleaner (CNG and LNG emit up to 23 percent less greenhouse gas emissions in medium to heavy-duty vehicle applications).
“With the availability of new class-8, 2010 EPA-compliant natural gas trucks from several major manufacturers, regional and national trucking operators are transitioning their fleets to natural gas to add fuel diversity, curtail harmful emissions and reduce dependence on imported oil,” said James Harger, Clean Energy marketing officer.
“We commend Dillon Transport for its leadership role in this rapidly-growing movement."
The new station will enter the construction phase this month, with Clean Energy expecting to complete the work and open it in the third quarter of the year.
