Crown Clean Fuels Break Ground on CNG Station in Indiana
Crown Clean Fuels recently began construction on their publicly accessible CNG station at the Crown Business Park in Clay County, Indiana. Crown Clean Fuels is the anchor tenant of the newly developed Business Park, which is located off of Exit 23 on I-70.
“We are very excited about the opportunity this station and its location provides us as the first in a planned network of CNG stations,” said Kris Kyler, Crown Clean Fuels Spokesperson. “This location fills a CNG fueling gap on I70, from St. Louis to Indianapolis, giving CNG fleet and passenger vehicle operators an added level of comfort as they traverse across the Midwest.”
While the initial phase will include two fast fill lanes, the overall station design includes an additional four fast fill fueling lanes, allowing for expansion as their customer base grows. These lanes are all designed to provide operators with maneuverability of 67’ WB class 8 trucks, with concrete pavement approaches to and from the fueling lanes. Furthermore, the station layout is designed to accommodate fleets needing to swap trailers following fueling on CNG.
HP Legacy, an Indianapolis based engineering firm, is the design/build contractor serving Crown Clean Fuels project. Station will be operational in January, of 2016 and will accept all major credit cards.
