WINNIPEG, Man. — Bison Transport says it has now accumulated a million miles with its liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered trucks.
Bison last year entered into a five-year fuel supply agreement with Shell Canada, and purchased 15 LNG Peterbilt trucks with 15-litre Westport engines.
Currently, one commercial LNG fuelling station is operational in Calgary, with another set to open in Edmonton in early February.
“Bison is constantly searching for new ways to move freight more efficiently and to reduce costs for their customers,” said Trevor Fridfinnson, senior vice-president. “We are very proud to be at the forefront of testing this new fuel technology.”
The company has produced a white paper on its LNG experience. It can be found here.
