CNG Firm Adds Fueling Stations Near Airports in Atlanta and Oklahoma City
SEAL BEACH, CA --- Clean Energy Fuels Corp. will own, operate and supply fuel for new compressed natural gas (CNG) public-access stations to support airport operations in Atlanta and Oklahoma City, the company announced.
Clean Energy is a leading provider of natural gas (CNG and LNG) for transportation in North America.
In the Atlanta area, the city of College Park, Georgia, contracted with Clean Energy to design, construct and manage a public-access CNG fueling station on city-owned property located less than a mile from the entrance to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The facility is designed to serve a range of light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, including regional public transit buses, municipal vehicles, refuse hauling trucks, and airport parking, hotel, and employee CNG shuttle buses.
In Oklahoma City, Will Rogers World Airport officials contracted with Clean Energy to build and manage a large-scale public-access CNG fuel station. Located on airport property, the new facility will serve — in addition to CNG-powered airport transit and shuttle vehicles — a growing number of CNG fleets in the area.
Both stations will fuel high-volume fleet applications, including hotel, parking, shared ride shuttles and transit buses.
James Harger, Clean Energy senior vice president, said: "We are delighted to have this opportunity to partner with the city of College Park and with Will Rogers World Airport to make these new CNG stations a reality. The facilities will significantly boost local efforts to curtail air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, they will contribute to reductions in transportation operating costs."
