LNG fueling station serves
trucks in California ports
Jun 21, 2010 10:40 AM
Speedy Fuel held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its first full-service liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station to serve heavy-duty Class 8 trucks in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach CA recently.
Applied LNG Technologies (ALT) supplies LNG to the multi-fuel public access station that will offer truck owners and operators full traditional retail access, immediately off the 710 Freeway and Anaheim Street at 1234 Cowles Street in Long Beach.
Speedy Fuel completed this project in record time and without any public funds. The station has begun fueling operations within 60 days after initial groundbreaking, providing trucking companies and independent owner operators an alternative fueling location within the ports.
ALT and Speedy Fuel are working together to expand LNG supply at two additional Speedy Fuel locations in the Southland. The additional stations are in the planning/development stages and are expected to open in 2011.
LNG meets Californiaís emission standards and is now more readily available for use by commercial vehicles, heavy-duty trucks, utility companies, fleets, and other natural gas vehicles. Vehicles fueled by the transportation-grade LNG produce approximately one-sixth of the nitrogen oxides and up to 15% less greenhouse gases than comparable petroleum diesel-fueled vehicles.
