Veolia awards Clean Energy L.A. CNG contract

Posted on December 9, 2009

Veolia Transportation Services Inc. awarded Clean Energy Fuels Corp. a contract to build, operate and maintain a compressed natural gas (CNG) bus fueling station at Veolia facilities in downtown Los Angeles.

Under contract with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), Veolia will begin operating new environmentally friendly CNG buses for the agency in April 2010, as Metro accelerates efforts to replace older diesel-fueled buses with new CNG models. The Veolia-operated transit buses are deployed in Metro's North Los Angeles County service area.

Construction of the new Veolia/Clean Energy CNG station will begin in January 2010, with completion set for mid 2010. CNG fuel requirements are projected at more than 420,000 gasoline-gallon-equivalents in the first year of the Veolia station's operations.
