Deliveries are under way from Energy Fuels Corp’s new California LNG Plant at Boron, California, to Clean Energy’s new LNG port truck fueling station in Carson, California. Reportedly the largest LNG (liquefied natural gas) production plant in the Southwest and the first large-scale plant in California, it has been built to produce up to 160,000 gallons per day of LNG, upsizing to 240,000 gallons per day as demand increases. The facility includes a 1.8-million-gallon LNG storage tank as an important regional supply source and to provide reserves for unanticipated demand.
The Clean Truck Program at the ports anticipates replacing over 8,000 old diesel trucks with new trucks that are proven to be cleaner than diesel, such as LNG trucks, within five years. These trucks are anticipated to be a major consumer of the LNG fuel produced at the California LNG Plant. “Already new, cleaner LNG trucks are rolling at the ports and throughout Southern California, lowering emissions pollution and providing cheaper fuel from domestic sources for trucking fleets,” noted Andrew J. Littlefair, President and CEO of Clean Energy. “We also have begun construction on our second regional LNG truck fueling station in Arizona, which is scheduled for completion in March 2009.”
