Commercial fleet operators in Canada can now access technical guidelines for preparing and maintaining facilities for housing natural gas vehicle fleets. The guidelines are available on request from the Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance (see link below).
The guidelines cover issues such as regulatory compliance and the safe handling of natural gas vehicles. Alicia Milner, CNGVA President, says, “Natural gas is a proven and safe fuel for transportation, but its properties are different than those of liquid fuels. These differences need to be understood and addressed in indoor facilities where vehicles are maintained, stored or loaded.”
