Clean Energy Fuels said that it has signed a multi-year fueling agreement to further support Dillon Transport in heavy-duty natural gas truck fueling.
Clean Energy is scheduled to supply Dillon’s growing fleet with approximately 2.5 million additional DGEs of CNG annually and expects to open three additional public truck-friendly natural gas stations in Houston, Texas, Midland, Texas, and West Atlanta, Ga., over the remainder of the year to accommodate the increased fuel sales.
With this agreement, over 200 of Dillon’s 500-truck fleet will fuel with natural gas throughout Clean Energy’s public-access network in Texas and Georgia. This network includes a natural gas station on Dillon’s property in Dallas, Texas, built and operated by Clean Energy. Dillon regularly takes delivery of additional heavy-duty CNG trucks as it phases out its remaining diesel trucks.
“The successful operation of our Dallas Clean Energy station and our current natural gas fleet operations have proven a lower total cost-per-mile than our diesel fleet,” said Jeff Dillon, president of Dillon Transport. “Converting the rest of our fleet with Clean Energy as our preferred fuel provider is an extension of our successful natural gas fueling track record.”
The Midland, Texas, station is located adjacent to a Pilot Flying J Travel Center and will feature 2 CNG lanes and 2 LNG lanes. The Houston, Texas and West Atlanta, Ga., stations will each have 2 CNG lanes.
