Raven Transport to expand fueling agreement by deploying 33 additional heavy-duty LNG trucks to serve the Southeast

To support this growing natural gas fleet, Clean Energy will open its Albany, Ga., public-access LNG station. 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, these additional vehicles are forecasted to consume over 700,000 DGEs of LNG annually, and are expected to be on the road in December 2014.

This natural gas fleet is expected to double to 10 trucks by the end of 2014. Clean Energy will support this natural gas fleet by opening its Charlotte, N.C., America’s Natural Gas Highway station this month. This station 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. Network

Parkway School District in Chesterfield, Mo., purchases compression equipment and signs repair and maintenance agreement
