The new Clean Energy natural gas fueling facility, also available 24/7 for public access, will support the expanding Dillon fleet of LNG-powered tanker trucks. Development of the station is expected to begin immediately, with the opening projected for the third quarter.
Dillon Transport's temperature-sensitive tank truck fleets operate throughout the U.S. and Canada with contract services concentrated east of the Rocky Mountains. The new Dallas Clean Energy station will support Dillon LNG trucks to be deployed in the near future to deliver raw materials to the Owens Corning shingle production plant in Irving, Texas. Owens Corning is a producer of residential and commercial building materials.
Along with Owens Corning, Dillon is a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay Transport Partnership, a voluntary alliance of freight industry organizations that establishes incentives for fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas reductions. Costing less than diesel, natural gas fuel produces up to 23 percent lower greenhouse gas emissions in medium to heavy-duty vehicle applications.
