he company fueled up the 1000th customer at ENNís new LNG station in Chilliwack. Open 24/7 and positioned along Highway 1, it is located on one of the busiest trucking corridors in British Columbia.

 

"This is an important milestone not only for us but for the LNG industry in BC. With 1,000 trucks filled in under two months, it is clear the BC trucking industry has embraced LNG as a safer, cleaner and cost competitive alternative to diesel," said Henry Cai, CEO of ENN Canada.

 

Since opening in February 2014, the Chilliwack station has continued to grow a diverse base of trucking clients, including Arrow and Sutco.

 

"Their confidence in adopting this technology has been critical to our early success, and weíre committed to building additional stations across the Province as demand continue to increase," added Cai.

"We are very pleased to partner with ENN on this project. It is important for Arrow to always explore new ways to operate our business more efficiently and environmentally,Ē said Tim Bell, VP and GM of Arrow Transportation Systems. "ENN has worked closely with us to reduce the challenges in transitioning to this technology by providing full-service LNG stations that are operated by highly trained attendants."

Based in BC, Arrow Transportation Systems recently made the transition to natural gas and is fueling at the Chilliwack ENN station. "We have high hopes for the LNG initiative in the long term and look forward to continuing this partnership with ENN into the future," commented Bell.
