North American energy supplier Mansfield Energy Corp. has been awarded a contract by the City of El Paso, Texas for the design, construction and operations of three Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations to service city-owned and leased vehicles. The contract with Mansfield will be for an initial term of 10 years to operate and maintain the three fuel processing facilities on property leased from the City of El Paso for the fueling of the City of El Paso owned and contracted vehicles.
These station locations include the airport site located at Montana Avenue and Global Reach Drive at the City of El Paso International Airport, the LIFT site located at 5081 Fred Wilson Avenue and the MSC site located at 1059 Lafayette Drive in El Paso.
J. Alexander, President of Mansfield Energy stated, “We are thrilled to begin working on this project with the City of El Paso. Our expertise and experience building and servicing CNG stations for many city and county governments allows us to promote environmentally-sound initiatives while lowering our customers’ annual fuel costs.”
“We hope this project opens the door to everyday use of natural gas as a transportation fuel in the El Paso region. Alternative fuels are a key element of the City’s strategy to move towards sustainability,” said Marty Howell, Director of Economic Development and Sustainability, the City of El Paso.
The design, construction, installation and start-up of the 3-site project will be managed by Mansfield Gas Equipment Systems Corporation, one of the operating subsidiaries of Mansfield Energy, and local partners.
