The management and operating contractor for the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Nevada National Security Site, has been recognized for having one of the cleanest, most fuel-efficient vehicle fleets in the nation.

Competing with more than 38,000 public fleets, National Security Technologies' (NSTec) Fleet, Fuel & Equipment Service operation was rated 4th by the 2015 100 Best Fleets, Green Fleet Awards organization, which tracks and rates the performance of vehicle fleets throughout the continent.

To be recognized for having a top fleet, a company must demonstrate vision, outstanding operations, and strategic planning toward the future environmental role of fleet that other public fleets can emulate; reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and fleet composition demonstrating a commitment to alternative fuel vehicles such as hybrid vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles and alternative fueled vehicles. Candidates must also demonstrate fleet utilization goals that validate a strong commitment to a “green” approach toward keeping the environment clean.

 NSTec’s fleet is comprised of 960 vehicles, ranging from sedans to large trucks. More than 40 of them are alternative-fueled or plug-in electric vehicles.

“Congratulations all. This is quite an accomplishment!” said Jim McConnell, Assistant Administrator for Safety, Infrastructure and Operations for NNSA.
