Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), which owns and operates Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), will be using Ford F-250 and F-350 vehicles fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG). The vehicles will be converted by Landi Renzo with the company’s “Eco Ready” CNG system, according to Landi Renzo.
Landi Renzo USA is the only approved Ford QVM (Qualified Vehicle Modifier) developer for pick-up trucks certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). As an OEM-approved system under Ford’s QVM program, the original warranty remains fully in place.
LAWA is a City of Los Angeles department. LAX serves more than 87 million passengers a year, and it maintains one of the largest airport clean vehicle fleets in the nation.
More than two-thirds of LAWA’s fleet vehicles use alternative fuels, with 68% of these using CNG. Through the adoption of the Airport Alternative Fuel Policy by the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners, the airport is poised to further reduce its emissions.
Landi Renzo worked closely with LAWA to ensure the CNG product meets the airport’s needs and unique operational requirements. The company provided CNG training and consulting to LAWA’s fleet department and prototyped conversions for the department.
