SEAL BEACH, CA - Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has signed long-term agreements with four major airport complexes in four states to design, build, own and operate new compressed natural gas (CNG) stations. The fueling facilities will support ground transport vehicles and off-airport parking shuttles.
The new Clean Energy stations, available 24/7 for public access, will be located in Tampa, Fla.; New York City; New Orleans and Philadelphia.
“We welcome this opportunity to support forward-looking airport fleet operators and off-airport parking leaders as they transition their fleets to natural gas power,” said James Harger, chief marketing officer for Clean Energy.
At Florida’s Tampa International Airport, the Clean Energy public access facility will support the airport’s expanding fleet of low-carbon, low-emission CNG passenger and employee transit buses, as well as off-airport hotel and parking shuttle fleets. Tampa International will be the first airport in Florida to implement CNG power for its ground transportation vehicle fleets.
Clean Energy has contracted with John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York to develop, own and operate a new CNG fueling station at the Airport Plaza convenience store and fueling center adjacent to the airport. This station, located on land owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, will be available 24/7 for public access. It will support JFK’s expanding on-airport CNG-powered ground transport vehicle fleets, off-site Parking Spot CNG shuttle buses, taxis and other CNG vehicles operating in the area.
Clean Energy has contracted for a new CNG fueling station adjacent to Louisiana’s Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport on property leased by off-airport shuttle operator Park N’ Fly. The station will provide CNG fueling services to airport authority-operated shuttle vehicles, CNG-powered taxis, and varied off-airport parking shuttle fleets, including the Park N’ Fly fleet.
The new Clean Energy Philadelphia Airport CNG fueling station will be located on property owned by Wallypark, a national off-airport parking shuttle operator. The station will be available 24/7 for public access and will provide CNG fueling services to airport authority-operated shuttle vehicles, CNG-powered taxis, and varied off-airport parking shuttle fleets, including the Wallypark CNG shuttle fleet.
