Gain Clean Fuel has partnered with FastFlow CNG to build and manage a co-branded compressed natural gas fueling station in South Texas.

The station is located in Laredo to meet the CNG fueling needs of C.A.T. International, a North American carrier, and other trucking fleets with an alternative fuel station to support CNG trucks in the area. The station is scheduled to open in Sept. 2016.

“This site will complete the network of CNG stations we need to fuel CNG trucks on our routes,” said Daniel Goyette, C.A.T. president. “We have successfully added CNG to our fleet over the past year and have seen substantial savings in emissions.”

Nearly a third of C.A.T.’s fleet of 350 tractors have been converted to CNG. This station, along with four additional Gain Clean Fuel stations that opened last year in Toronto, Ontario; Coteau-du-Lac, Montreal; Charlotte, N.C., and Scranton, Penn., as part of the partnership, will be combined with the existing Gain Clean Fuel North American network to provide C.A.T. access to a reliable and quality source of CNG.

FastFlow CNG is partnering with Gain on the new location, using the company’s experience in the Texas market to provide fleets with a CNG fueling option along U.S. Highway 83, a well-travelled lane connecting the U.S. to Mexico.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with Gain Clean Fuel to provide C.A.T. a site that will close the loop on their CNG fueling needs,” said Matt Russell, IFS marketing director. “FastFlow CNG has served this region to help build America’s energy independence by providing high quality CNG stations and we look forward to the additional opportunities that come with partnering with Gain Clean Fuel to be part of a recognized nation-wide CNG network.”

U.S. Gain, a division of U.S. Venture, is a CNG provider offering fleet operators access to Gain Clean Fuel. Its fuel stations are strategically located for carriers along major shipping corridors and provide access to fast-fill CNG stations. C.A.T. is a truckload carrier offering service between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
