TDIndustries Launches CNG Pilot Program

TDIndustries commits to helping the environment with the launch of a CNG pilot program

TDIndustries (TD) announced the launch of a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Pilot Program, in an effort to cut operating costs, improve air quality, increase efficiency and utilize the abundant natural gas resources in Texas. This initiative will utilize CNG powered vehicles to perform daily Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing (MEP) service operations. Traditionally, natural gas vehicles cost less to refuel than gasoline vehicles, emit up to 90 percent fewer greenhouse gases, and in many cases, cost less to maintain, according to natural gas experts.

TDIndustries is an environmentally conscientious construction company with an operating fleet of 394 service vans in the Southwest region of United States, recognizing the need to find more efficient ways to do business while still providing customers with exceptional service. Through clean, safe and cost effective efforts, TD offers a turnkey solution to all phases of planning, construction, service/maintenance and operation functions, providing customers a single point of accountability for managing project performance.

The pilot program, began with the conversion of two Ford E350 service vans in their Fort Worth office, equip with CNG conversion. This pilot program will guide TDIndustries in determining the feasibility of natural gas vehicles, the availability of CNG fueling stations and how a fleet powered by natural gas can meet their operational needs. Conversion of vehicles to CNG were performed by NGV Texas Inc., a Dallas-based company, specializing in CNG and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) technologies out of their 65,000 square foot conversion facility.

“Natural gas is an abundant resource in Texas that will help drive our state’s future. We need to lead by example, as we get more involved with construction and providing service for CNG fueling stations and other energy related projects.” – Jason Cinek, SVP TDIndustries
