GP Strategies, a global performance improvement solutions provider, has completed the construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) trailer loading facility at the Mt. Hayes storage plant, located in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada.

Owned by FortisBC, the Mt. Hayes LNG plant can load LNG trailers at 1,100 to 1,500 liters [approximately 264 to 396 gallons] per minute and increases LNG distribution to the province of British Columbia.

FortisBC Market Development & External Relations vice president Doug Stout said: "By adding trailer loading capacity to our Mt. Hayes LNG plant, FortisBC is responding to increased market demand for clean-burning LNG.

"This enhanced capacity provides our customers with greater certainty that LNG will be available to support their projects."

GP Strategies Alternative Fuels Division vice president Mike Mackey said: "This project is in addition to the 100+ alternative fueling projects we have completed in 13 states and 4 provinces in North America and further demonstrates GP Strategies’ capabilities to deliver world-class solutions to the LNG industry."
