Groundbreaking Held for First of Five Stations for C.A.T.
Local officials and community leaders joined with representatives from C.A.T., Gaz Métro and U.S. Venture Gain Fuel Canada to break ground for the first GAIN Clean Fuel CNG station in Québec, Canada. The public access station will provide the North American carrier with natural gas fuel to support its growing fleet of CNG trucks. The station, which is located at the busy A-20/H-401 corridor, will be supplied with natural gas through Gaz Métro’s network. The opening of the station is planned for this fall.
“The carrier industry is evolving with the use of CNG,” said C.A.T. President Daniel Goyette. “Partnering with GAIN Clean Fuel has provided us the infrastructure we need as we continue to convert our fleet from diesel fuel to operating on CNG.”
Nearly a third of C.A.T.’s fleet of 350 tractors will be converted to CNG. This station, along with four additional GAIN Clean Fuel stations under construction (in Toronto, Ontario; Laredo, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Scranton, Pennsylvania) will be combined with the existing GAIN Clean Fuel North American network to provide C.A.T. access to CNG.
