Enviro Express Features Kenworth T800 LNG Trucks

January 3, 2011

Kenworth liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks were featured recently at the opening ceremony for a major natural gas, transportation fleet fueling station in Bridgeport.

Enviro Express, a Bridgeport-based firm providing solid waste collection, transfer and recycling services for several area municipalities, is converting most of its fleet of tractors to LNG-powered Kenworth T800s. The fueling station, which the company will operate to provide liquefied and compressed natural gas fuel for its fleet and to the public, is the first one of its kind east of the Mississippi River, according to the Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition.

Enviro Express has purchased 18 T800 LNG trucks from MTC Kenworth in Ridgefield Park, N.J. A dozen of the fleet's Kenworth LNG trucks were displayed at the recent event, which included the attendance of U.S. Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.); Mark S. Smith, vehicle technology deployment manager for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Clean Cities Program; and Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch.
