Emterra Environmental, Manitoba
With CNG stations and CNG fleets in Winnipeg, Manitoba as well as British Columbia’s Capital Regional District and Chilliwack, Emterra Environmental has established itself as a leader in the use of alternative green fleet technologies. Through its initial investment in Winnipeg, Emterra developed the largest fleet of CNG collection trucks in the world operating in an extreme cold weather climate.
As an organization that is dedicated to efficiency and mitigating the environmental impact of its operations, Emterra plans to further expand its CNG fleet and network of private and public CNG fuelling stations across Canada. Over the next year, Emterra will roll out even more CNG trucks in British Columbia and Ontario. As part of its launch in Ontario, Emterra will develop a CNG refuelling station, a new fleet of 100+ CNG trucks, and a CNG-certified truck maintenance centre in Mississauga, Ontario. This location will be a CNG Service Hub, the first of its kind in Canada that will feature fast fuelling, a CNG-certified maintenance shop, a CNG-certified drive through wash bay and a CNG-certified paint booth. CNG fleet owners/operators will be provided with a diesel-like experience, if not better, at this CNG Service Hub.
By the end of 2015, 25 per cent of Emterra’s fleet across Canada will be CNG-powered, making it one of the largest CNG fleets in Canada. Emterra will also have a network of four fuelling stations across Canada that is open to the public.
