Clean Energy Makes It ‘Easy’
Demonstrates ‘Easy Bay’ Using New Demo Truck
Clean Energy Fuels is demonstrating its NGV Easy Bay maintenance facility modification product for natural gas vehicles at Booth 1629, and at the same time is showing off one of its two new demonstration trucks.
NGV Easy Bay was introduced last year as “the first code-compliant fabric barrier system utilizing an industrial curtain designed for quick, cost-efficient installation and operation… the lowest cost separation and vapor containment system available.”
ACT Expo attendees will be able to see how the Clean Energy system can sequester a natural gas truck at an existing facility.
The truck is a state-of-the-art Peterbilt 579 with 135-diesel gallon equivalent back-of-cab CNG cylinder array by Agility Fuel Systems (Booth 437).
Clean Energy has also purchased an LNG-fueled Freightliner Cascadia, with twin rail-mounted tanks by Chart Industries (Booth 727) holding 156 DGEs.
The two will be used to let fleet operators test natural gas, at no charge, for several days.
“We already have a list of fleets that have signed up,” says Clean Energy VP Chad Lindholm. “We’re giving it as a tractor and you can put your load on the back.”
Lindholm notes that in order to deliver optimal fuel economy and performance, both demo trucks have a direct drive transmission, partial chassis fairings, side extenders and a three piece roof fairing.
Freightliner is at Booth 705. Peterbilt is at 136.
Clean Energy facility modifications sales manager Wally Dubno is to discuss his firm’s NGV Easy Bay at the Fuel, Infrastructure, and Training session in Room C1 at 9:00am today.
