SEVILLE, OH – A new liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station has opened in Seville, Ohio, to support the expanding fleet of LNG trucks deployed by major contract freight carrier Dillon Transport, a liquid and dry bulk carrier serving Owens Corning.
Dillon Transport operates a fleet of 280 tractors and more than 400 trailers with a fleet average age of 1.8 years. Its temperature-sensitive tanker truck fleets operate throughout the U.S. and Canada, with contract services concentrated east of the Rocky Mountains.
The new LNG station is built, owned and operated by Clean Energy Fuels Corp. and is also available 24/7 for public access. The station is located at 8924 Lake Road, Seville, Ohio, on property owned by Pilot Flying J Truck Travel Centers.
The new Ohio station will support Dillon-operated trucks that deliver raw materials to Owens Corning industrial production plants. Owens Corning is a global producer of residential and commercial building materials.
A grant to help fund the development of the Clean Energy LNG station was awarded to Clean Fuels Ohio by the U.S. Department of Energy, as part of the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus program.
Clean Energy fuels more than 25,200 vehicles at 257 strategic locations across the United States and Canada with a broad customer base in the refuse, transit, trucking, shuttle, taxi, airport and municipal fleet markets.
