Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced today that it has been awarded a contract to construct three compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in Ontario, Canada for Union Energy Solutions Limited Partnership (UES), an unregulated affiliate of Union Gas – an Enbridge Company, a major Canadian natural gas storage, transmission and distribution company.
The stations, which will be in London, Windsor and Napanee, will make fueling with clean CNG possible along Highway 401 in Ontario, one of the busiest highways in North America and the main route from the Windsor border at Detroit, to Quebec City on the St. Lawrence Seaway, strategically and economically vital to trade between Canada and the U.S. The three stations will add to Clean Energy’s network of over 530 natural gas fueling stations that it owns and/or operates in 42 U.S. states and other provinces in Canada, and are expected to initially distribute an estimated 600,000 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) per year.
“Reducing greenhouse gases remains a high priority for North America’s transportation industry,” said Sarah Van Der Paelt, vice president, Union Energy Solutions Limited Partnership. “Building these stations on such an important commercial route will provide the necessary infrastructure and opportunity for fleets to make a successful transition to traditional and renewable natural gas which dramatically reduce GHGs versus diesel-fueled trucks.”
“Entering into this agreement with Union Energy Solutions will enable us to provide more outlets for clean natural gas, which in turn will help reduce toxic and unhealthful diesel gas emissions in the region,” said Chad Lindholm, Vice President of Sales at Clean Energy. “This network of CNG stations will enable heavy-duty truck fleets to confidently travel these routes ensuring they have sufficient fuel as they cross Canadian and provincial borders as well as travelling into the United States.”
