Superior Propane is expanding its refueling infrastructure by installing approximately 15 Superior Energy Systems’ refueling dispensers in five provinces with plans to add even more dispensers in 2019.
The dispensers were purchased from National Energy Equipment Inc., a Superior Energy Systems distributor.
“Our Canadian customers have waited patiently for a certified and advanced autogas refueling solution, and we delivered,” said Derek Rimko, vice president of operations for Superior Energy Systems. “School districts in particular are enjoying the reduced cost and emissions benefits of propane autogas through the installation and intuitive use of our dispensers.”
The growing number of dispensers purchased by Canadian customers is due in part to Superior Energy Systems’ recent Measurement Canada certification. Measurement Canada is responsible for ensuring accuracy in the selling of measured goods, developing and enforcing the laws related to measurement accuracy, approving and inspecting measuring devices and investigating complaints of suspected inaccurate measurement in Canada. The certification verifies that Superior Energy Systems’ propane autogas dispensers are legal for trade and custody transfer, in commercial and retail applications. Superior Energy Systems became the first U.S.-based company to earn the approval.
Also encouraging growth is the Canadian Alternative Fuels Act, which mandates that 75 percent of motor vehicles operated by all federal bodies and Crown corporations operate on alternative fuels. According to the Canadian Propane Association, Canada is the world’s 10th largest producer of propane, making the fuel readily available and economical. Propane autogas has the largest refueling infrastructure of any alternative fuel in Canada.
