ENN Canada has refueled it’s 1000th customer at ENN’s new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) station in Chilliwack. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and positioned along Highway 1, the fuel station is located on one of the busiest trucking corridors in British Columbia.
“This is an important milestone not only for ENN Canada but for the LNG industry in B.C.”, said Henry Cai, CEO of ENN Canada. “With 1000 trucks filled in under two months, it is clear the BC trucking industry has embraced LNG as a safer, cleaner and cost competitive alternative to diesel.” Cai also noted that “on average, LNG is 30-40% less expensive than diesel and produces up to 25% less emissions.”
Customers have experienced early success with the station and LNG. Based in BC, Arrow Transportation Systems recently made the transition to natural gas and is fueling at the Chilliwack ENN station: “We are very pleased to partner with ENN on this project. It is important for Arrow to always explore new ways to operate our business more efficiently and environmentally” said Tim Bell, VP and GM of Arrow. “ENN has worked closely with us to reduce the challenges in transitioning to this technology by providing full-service LNG stations that are operated by highly trained attendants,” he continued. “We have high hopes for the LNG initiative in the long term and look forward to continuing this partnership with ENN into the future.”
Since opening in February 2014, the Chilliwack station has continued to grow a diverse base of trucking clients including Arrow and Sutco. “We chose this location because we had confidence in British Columbia, and the BC trucking industry, that they were eager to embrace BC Natural Gas,” said Cai. “Their confidence in adopting this technology has been critical to our early success, and we’re committed to building additional stations across the Province as demand continue to increase”.
ENN Canada is a wholly owned subsidiary of ENN Group, a global leader in alternative energy solutions and one of the largest natural gas distributors in China. It currently operates four LNG fueling stations, two in British Columbia and two in Ontario along major transportation routes. Through their joint venture with Ferus NGF, ENN Canada also has plans to construct two LNG manufacturing facilities in BC and Alberta.(Source: ENN Canada)
