Waste Pro USA has awarded Clean Energy Fuels Corp. a construction agreement to design and build compressed natural gas (CNG) stations at its Sanford, Fla., and Sarasota, Fla., properties, according to the company.
The Sanford CNG Station will accommodate 90 CNG-powered service vehicles and the Sarasota station will be capable of fueling 30 CNG vehicles.
This investment furthers Waste Pro’s ongoing goal to transition the majority of the fleet of collection trucks from diesel fuel, to cleaner burning CNG. These two new CNG stations will increase the total number of CNG stations located throughout Waste Pro’s southeastern footprint to a total of seven, according to the company.
Waste Pro is also working with natural gas fuel provider Clean Energy to expand its current CNG Station in Pompano Beach, Fla., from a capacity of 30 vehicles to 50 vehicles.
Clean Energy said it currently operates and maintains a majority of Waste Pro’s CNG stations and will be expanding its contract to cover all Waste Pro stations beginning in 2016.
