Ledcor unveils natural gas-powered fleet
October 14, 2014 by STAFF REPORT
Ledcor Group of Companies now boasts one of Canada’s largest fleets of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. G.W. Anglin Manufacturing converted more than 200 of Ledcor’s vehicles – 2014 and 2015 Ford Transit Connect cargo vans – to incorporate CNG fuel systems from Altech-Eco.
Ledcor Group of Companies serves the construction, building, infrastructure, mining, power, communications, and oil and gas sectors. It also own operations in wastewater treatment, property investment, forestry and transportation services.
According to Ledcor, natural gas vehicles have significantly lower exhaust emissions then typical vehicles, including 70 to 90 per cent less carbon monoxide, 75 to 95 per cent less nitrogen oxides, and 20 to 30 per cent less carbon dioxide. The vehicles also experience less corrosion and wear in engine parts, which results in a more durable, productive and reliable vehicle fleet.
“Converting a significant portion of our light-duty vehicle fleet makes good economic sense for Ledcor and is aligned with our sustainability goals,” said Scott Lyons, COO of Ledcor Technical Services.
