Ruan Trucking Celebrates Opening of New CNG Station from U.S. Gain
State and local officials joined representatives from Ruan and U.S. Gain as they watched a new Ruan CNG truck break the ribbon to celebrate the grand opening of the newest GAIN Clean Fuel CNG station in North America. The GAIN Clean Fuel station, located in Des Moines, Iowa, will fuel Ruan’s fleet of recently converted CNG trucks.
“A lot of research and planning has gone into making the conversion from diesel fuel to CNG,” said Ralph Arthur, Ruan’s president of Dedicated Contract Carriage. “We believe it’s more than just good business; it’s a commitment to making our trucking operations part of the equation when it comes to the stewardship of the environment.”
Ruan currently has 85 CNG tractors in the Midwest—and 100 nationwide—with plans to expand to additional units where there is a fit. It is anticipated that in 2016, this facility will use the equivalent of 1 million gallons of diesel fuel. The new station will be incorporated into U.S. Gain’s network of Gain Clean Fuel stations throughout the North America.
