LOS ANGELES -- AECOM Technology Corporation, a leading provider of professional, technical and management support services for public and private clients joins Shell in announcing the opening of Shell’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling lanes for heavy-duty commercial trucks in the United States. AECOM provided centralized project management services including programming, design, comprehensive environmental permitting and construction management.
The LNG fueling lanes, located at a truck stop in Ontario, California, represent the first of 20 locations AECOM will build for Shell throughout the country. Each location will include LNG storage tanks, pumps and cryogenic piping systems, automation and control systems, dispensers, as well as civil and electrical infrastructure related to site safety and operations.
