BAF Technologies has received an order to convert 463 Ford E-250 vans to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). The order, from AT&T, will be fulfilled in the second quarter of 2010, BAF, a wholly owned subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp., said.
“The new orders demonstrate AT&T’s determination to significantly alter its fleet to alternative-fuel vehicles,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy President & CEO. “They also reflect AT&T’s choice of BAF as a superior conversion specialist for their vehicles.”
AT&T is already scheduled to receive 463 converted vans in the first quarter of 2010 and has verbally committed to an additional 463 for delivery in the third quarter, BAF said. According to BAF, AT&T is planning to convert 1,850 vans in 2010, which follows 600 conversions in 2009.
The conversion process does not void any Ford warranties, BAF said.
