Clean Energy Fuels plans to double the compressed natural gas station capacity at Saddle Creek Transportation's natural gas station in Lakeland, Fla., and has opened two new locations in separate states.

It will add two additional 300-horsepower compressors and 55 additional new time-fill fueling points in Lakeland.

Saddle Creek plans to add 25 heavy-duty CNG Freightliner 12-Liter Cascadia tractors to its existing fleet of 150 to meet increased customer demand for CNG-fueled logistics, according to Clean Energy. The additional vehicles are forecasted to consume approximately 400,000 diesel gallon equivalent of CNG annually and are scheduled to be deployed in October 2014 once the station capacity has been increased.

"Our natural gas trucks, now on their fifth-generation, are an integral part of our logistics offering. Our fleet currently has over 24 million miles using natural gas,” said Michael DelBovo, president, Saddle Creek Transportation

Meantime, under previously announced fueling agreements, Raven Transport has begun fueling at the Walton, Ky., station, and NFI hauling for Lowe's has begun fueling at the Sulphur Springs, Texas, station.
