TRUSTAR SIGNS FUEL AGREEMENT WITH CEMENT AND CONCRETE COMPANY
On Thursday, TruStar Energy announced a contract award for the delivery of CNG to Argos USA, one of the largest cement and concrete manufacturers and suppliers in the U.S., for fueling stations in two concrete plant locations in Houston and Dallas. Argos USA has over 300 concrete plants, three cement plants, three grinding stations and 12 cement terminals located throughout the southeast. “For Argos, this is our first entry into CNG powered concrete mixers worldwide, and with our ‘hub and spoke’ fleet business model, we think it makes perfect sense,” said Argos USA Sourcing Manager, Daryl Mizell. Argos will be piloting 40 new Peterbilt CNG mixers at the two ready mix plants. The stations will be powered by TruStar Energy PFS Elite 225 system. The Elite Series features a common skid frame that will facilitate up to three compressors, allowing for redundancy, while maintaining a small footprint. The first station is slated for an early May 2014 startup date.
