MGM Saves Money By Using Krystal Natural Gas Limos

Posted on March 12, 2012

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — The MGM Grand, along with other MGM-owned properties, were cited in a recent article about the benefits of natural gas-powered stretch limousines, made by Krystal Enterprises Inc. of Brea, Calif.

Relevant excerpts from the article here. . .

“MGM Resorts International has worked with Clean Energy to implement a fleet of 26 limousines fueled by compressed natural gas for the use of guests visiting CityCenter Las Vegas. The idea to use a cleaner- burning transportation fuel for a limousine fleet was conceived by Bobby Baldwin, president of MGM's CityCenter project.

“Paul Berry, vice president of hotel operations at MGM Resorts International, worked with Duane Sinatra, executive director of Front End Services, to make the compressed natural gas-powered limousine fleet a reality. Since none of the worldwide automobile manufacturers at the time produced stock CNG-powered limousines, the management team contracted Krystal Enterprises to convert gasoline-powered Ford Lincoln Town Car platforms into CNG-powered limousines that were stretched as much as 10 feet.”
