Clean Energy wins contract to build hydrogen station and supply fuel to Foothill Transit buses


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ: CLNE), the nation’s largest supplier of the cleanest fuel for the transportation market, announced that it had won a tender for the design, construction and maintenance of a hydrogen station and supplying liquid hydrogen fuel for Foothill Transit, an environmentally friendly bus service in Southern California that averages 14 million trips per year.

“Obtaining our first hydrogen station and our first supply contract for Foothill Transit is very important to Clean Energy, as it demonstrates our ability to switch to different alternative fuels as our customers turn to other technologies, ”said Andrew J. Littlefair, President and CEO of Clean Energy. “Transportation companies like Foothill have been at the forefront of alternative fuels for decades because it is in their DNA to serve their communities with clean transportation. Clean Energy appreciated supporting Foothill in tackling air quality and greenhouse gas issues.

Foothill Transit has been a Clean Energy partner for 20 years and currently operates more than 300 of its Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) buses at two stations built by Clean Energy. The agency is now entrusting Clean Energy with the construction of its first hydrogen station in Pomona, Calif., As it expands into another clean alternative fuel. The contract is valued at more than $ 13 million.

The project will be funded with assistance from the Federal Transport Agency. Foothill Transit has placed an initial order for 20 fuel cell buses, and the station is designed to accommodate many more.

“Our new fleet of hydrogen fuel cells is the next step in our journey towards a zero emissions future,” said Doran Barnes, CEO of Foothill Transit. “Our long-standing partner, Clean Energy, has been providing low-carbon RNG for our buses for years and we look forward to continuing to work with them as we expand into hydrogen fuel cell technology and the fuel.”

In response to the call for tenders, five proposals were submitted to Foothill Transit. Following interviews and an evaluation, Clean Energy was selected, receiving the highest technical and overall rating.

In recommending the award to its board of directors, Foothill Transit staff said, “Clean Energy has a long and successful track record of delivering public works and transit projects, including two CNG stations for Foothill Transit. They have designed, built, operated and maintained cryogenic, LNG, CNG and RNG services to 80 current transit customers, including our facilities in Pomona and Arcadia. ”

Clean Energy is a leader in the development and delivery of GNR, a sustainable fuel derived from organic waste, which will represent 33.3% of the hydrogen feedstock for Foothill Transit buses.

The station construction project partners are Fiedler Group, which will provide engineering design support as a subcontractor for Clean Energy, and Messer Group, which will provide hydrogen equipment, liquid hydrogen fuel and design of the station as part of the Clean Energy contract.

Clean Energy’s construction contractor for the project is Nicosia Contracting International, with whom Clean Energy has worked for almost two decades.
