Clean Energy Opens Oklahoma City, Okla., and Amarillo, Texas, America’s Natural Gas Highway Stations to Support UPS’ Growing Fleet of LNG Trucks
Carrier EJ Madison Deployed a Fleet of 20 Long Haul Dual-fuel LNG Trucks on Routes Spanning the Breadth of Clean Energy’s America’s Natural Gas Highway
- UPS has deployed six heavy-duty LNG trucks which are fueling at Clean Energy’s newly-opened Oklahoma City, Okla., station; an additional four trucks are expected to begin fueling at this station within weeks. These tractors are forecasted to consume approximately 300,000 DGEs of LNG per year which represents a greenhouse gas reduction of approximately 518 metric tons per year.
- Clean Energy’s Amarillo, Texas, station has also opened and is fueling 10 LNG trucks under its previously-announced bulk fueling agreement with UPS.
- Fueling at Clean Energy’s Los Angeles, Calif.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Houston, Texas; Dallas, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; and Jacksonville, Fla., stations, this growing fleet showcases the strength of Clean Energy’s nationwide network. The fleet currently has traveled over five-hundred-thousand miles.
- EJ Madison intends to expand this fleet with an additional 30 dual-fuel LNG/diesel trucks in the coming months. El Paso, Texas-based Clean Fuel Technologies, LLC, is handling all conversions.
- Once fully deployed, this fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 336,000 DGEs of LNG per year, the approximate greenhouse gas reduction of 581 metric tons per year.
- Clean Energy LNG has dramatically reduced EJ Madison’s fleet maintenance costs by reducing carbon output and therefore reducing problems with diesel particulate systems that currently plague the industry.
“The initial twenty LNG dual-fuel conversions have proven to be a solid business move which is why we’re more than doubling the size of this fleet to continue to provide superior service to our customers at a competitive cost,” said John Warren, president of EJ Madison. “I believe the future of long-haul trucking is here, it’s cleaner and it’s promising.”
