Tampa International Airport (TPA)’s governing authority has entered into a lease and concession agreement with California-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp., a provider of natural gas (CNG and LNG) for transportation, granting them the right to develop, design, construct, operate and maintain a “turnkey” Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuel facility at the airport for a term of 20 years. The CNG facility, part of TPA’s green technology initiative, is expected to result in fuel cost savings for the Authority of over one million dollars in the first five years. Additional revenue is anticipated when the station is open to the public. TPA will be the first airport in Florida to implement CNG.
