LNG Fueling Station for Trucks Opens in Quebec

MONTREAL -- Canada's first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuelling station opened in Boucherville, on Montreal's South Shore, reported The Montreal Gazette.

Robert Transport, Gaz Metro Transportation Solutions, as well as a various municipal and provincial politicians, cut the ribbon on the new LNG station this past Monday.

As part of a $5.4 million demonstration project, the LNG station is the first of many that are planned to open between Quebec City and the Greater Toronto corridor. The next one will open in Mississauga, and a third in Quebec City.

According to the Gazette, Quebec is the only province in Canada actively supporting the construction of LNG stations.

Deemed the "blue road" project, the Quebec government has implemented incentives for heavy-duty trucks that run on LNG, and established a $1.8 million grant to set up the infrastructure needed to develop LNG technology.

The next step is to get the feds on the natural gas bandwagon. Claude Robert, president and CEO of Robert Transport —who already have 180 LNG trucks — along with other members of the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), are set to meet with federal environment minister Peter Kent next Monday.
