Natural Gas is on a Roll - "Go With Natural Gas" Workshops

Guest blog post by Cameron Rittich
Western Hub Program Manager, Go with Natural Gas

The transport sector is increasingly interested in natural gas engines and the cost savings, environmental benefits, and noise reduction possible through their use. The Go with Natural Gas Hub in conjunction with the PIT Group (a group of FPInnovations) is determined to support this trend by encouraging its members, every organization in the transport industry and fleets, to take advantage of natural gas for medium and heavy duty trucks, by attending specialized workshops focused on natural gas vehicles (NGVs).

The workshops are free of charge and will provide information on:
  • Comparing the properties, price, and environmental footprint of natural gas to that of diesel 
  • Factors to consider when determining whether NGVs are suited for your needs 
  • Evaluating your options and available technologies for filling stations 
  • Considerations for maintenance facility modification or new construction 
  • A fleet case study from an early adopter 

Medium and heavy duty fleets, operating regional haul, less than truckload, refuse, transit, concrete mixer, dump trucks and others are invited to attend. The events will feature an experience NGV fleet user, gas utility and supply experts, station and equipment vendors, as well as facility safety experts. If you are considering NGVs, this event is an excellent first step in realizing the advantages an NGV truck can bring to your transport operations.
