Clean Energy to build, maintain DFW CNG station

Posted on January 25, 2010

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) awarded a 10-year contract to Clean Energy Fuels Corp. to build and operate a new CNG fueling station to support the DFW Rental Car Center's new fleet of 46 CNG-powered courtesy shuttle buses.

The final contract is in process of completion.

DFW provides courtesy shuttle service between all airline terminals and the airport's consolidated rental car center (RCC). Plans call for the replacement of the entire fleet of 46 RCC shuttle buses with CNG-powered models within four years.

The new Clean Energy Rental Car Center CNG station, set to open in May 2010, will also be available 24/7 to CNG vehicles operating at the airport and in surrounding communities. When the fleet is fully deployed, it is anticipated that the station will dispense more than 500,000 gallons per year.

In a related action, DFW also awarded an extension of Clean Energy's contract to maintain and supply the airport's existing onsite CNG station until June 2020. The station fuels the airport's terminal buses and operations fleets. It also fuels private fleets, including door-to-door shuttle vans and taxi cabs that were recently granted front-of-the-line privileges for using CNG.
