IMW Industries, a subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp., has launched a new self-contained, mobile compressed natural gas fueling station designed for small to mid-size vehicle fleets.

The fueling station offers both time-fill and fast-fill fueling capabilities and is mounted on a 24-foot trailer for quick deployment to fleet locations across the country. It is designed to provide CNG fueling for new fleets or while a permanent station is under construction or undergoing equipment maintenance.

Enclosed in a protective trailer shell, the new IMW system can fuel CNG-powered refuse trucks, delivery trucks, service vans or other types of vehicle fleets. It features on-board fueling capability for 10 vehicles simultaneously in time-fill mode or for two vehicles in fast-fill mode. It is designed for use together with a portable generator or site power, and an on-site utility gas supply connection.

Each package has an industrial CNG compressor, high-pressure CNG storage, multi-point CNG dispensing, gas controls and electrical controls in a unique, purpose-built transport trailer.

CNG reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30 percent in light-duty vehicles and 23 percent in medium to heavy-duty vehicles, according to IMW.

In June, Chicago and Los Angeles became the latest cities to launch a fleet of Ford taxis powered by CNG. At the time Ford said that Chicago’s Taxi Medallion Management put 12 Ford Transit Connect Taxis into service while two Los Angeles-area cab companies ordered about 120 of the vehicles.
