Clean Energy, MCM Join Forces to Bring CNG to Miami
MCM, Munilla Construction Management and Clean Energy Fuels announced that the two companies are joining forces to bring the benefits of compressed natural gas fueling to Miami-Dade County and South Florida.
The collaboration, which combines a Miami-based builder known for quality and safety in the construction of large-scale infrastructure projects with the country’s largest provider of natural gas as a transportation fuel, will be responding to the Miami-Dade County Request for Qualifications for Compressed Natural Gas Fuel Savings Pool expected to be released shortly.
“The country is quickly switching to natural gas—cleaner, less expensive and domestic—to fuel fleet vehicles and Miami-Dade County should be no exception. When MCM decided to expand our decades of construction experience and knowledge of South Florida to this market, we knew we had to partner with the best fuel provider and we found that in Clean Energy,” said Pedro Munilla, co-founder and vice president, MCM.
“Clean Energy and MCM are a powerhouse team which combines the 30-year heavy civil construction and local Miami expertise of MCM with the national leader in natural gas fueling, infrastructure and financing solutions—Clean Energy,” said Peter Grace, senior vice president, sales and finance, Clean Energy.
Miami-Dade County is showing leadership in transitioning fleet vehicles to natural gas. The MCM Clean Energy team is uniquely qualified to serve all aspects of the Request for Qualifications from station design and construction to financing and CNG supply. Clean Energy has built and operates natural gas fueling stations for many of the nation’s largest transit authorities such as the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Hillsborough Area Regional Transit in Tampa, and airports such as New York’s JFK and Tampa International Airport.
Clean Energy customers also include over 200 refuse companies such as Choice Environmental Services, now Progressive Waste Services, which has been serving Palm Beach, Broward, Collier and Dade Counties in Florida with CNG since 2009. Clean Energy’s experience in building regional natural gas fueling networks in cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, and Atlanta will be of great value to the County’s vision for transitioning to natural gas fuel. MCM has completed large-scale construction projects for Miami International Airport, Florida Department of Transportation, Miami-Dade Expressway Authority, Port Miami and Miami-Dade County.
MCM is ranked among the largest Hispanic companies in the United States, is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and has extensive heavy civil construction experience throughout Florida. Clean Energy has built more private and public fueling stations and supplied the most gallons of CNG, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and Redeem renewable natural gas fuel, than any other company in the United States. Clean Energy owns, operates or supplies nearly 500 natural gas stations across North America, larger than all its competitors combined.
