Clean Energy, Saddle Creek doubling CNG fueling capacity at Lakeland facility

181Clean Energy Fuels announced it is doubling the compressed natural gas station capacity at Saddle Creek Transportation’s CNG station in Lakeland, Fla., where an additional 25 Freightliner Cascadia tractors with Cummins ISX12 G heavy-duty natural gas engines are expected to fuel.  Additional fueling agreements recently signed have resulted in the construction of new natural gas stations to support Clean Energy’s growing portfolio of natural gas fuel customers in the heavy-duty trucking, ready-mix and transit market segments.

“Our natural gas trucks—now on their fifth-generation— are an integral part of our logistics offering,” says Michael DelBovo, president of Saddle Creek Transportation. “Our fleet currently has over 24 million miles using natural gas. Our customers recognize the importance of sustainability in their supply chain and the value in moving goods with natural gas. We are expanding our fueling capacity to meet this rising demand.”
