Sani-Estrie and Gaz Métro revealed new dump trucks powered by compressed natural gas in the city of Magog.
Sani-Estrie currently boasts nine CNG trucks, five of which will be used for waste collection in Magog. To facilitate fuel supply, GMTS provided a compression station on Sani-Estrie Sherbrooke site. The new fleet, now in operation, has been refuelling through the Gaz Métro network since July 1, the company said in a statement.
The nine CNG trucks—two tractor-trailers, two roll-off trucks and five dump trucks—are the first of a total of 30 to be delivered over the next five years.
In addition to generating medium- to long-term savings for Sani-Estrie, the new fleet will cut greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 18%.
