American Natural Gas Constructing Public CNG Station in New York
American Natural Gas (ANG), a distributor of alternative motor fuels, is building a public CNG station near Rochester, New York. The facility will be located off I-390 at Exit 19, in close proximity to regional distributors and the Greater Rochester International Airport.
This is the second major CNG station announced by ANG in the past month. In September, ANG unveiled Tops Friendly Markets’ fueling station as the grocery retailer committed to converting its entire distribution fleet from diesel to CNG.
“Return-to-base operations, such as those employed by grocery stores, are particularly good candidates for converting to CNG,” said Drew West, CEO of ANG. “We’ve heard the demand from these fleets and others, including regional long haul and public transportation companies, and are excited to make this alternative fuel more accessible for Rochester businesses.”
ANG selected 400 HP Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation with a Xebec dryer. The station will feature three fueling lanes and Bennett CRIND dispensers equipped with NGV1 heavy-duty truck/bus nozzles to accommodate Class 8 (WB-67) semi tractor-trailers. The heavy duty station will be able to support high capacity fast fueling for large volume users.
The station will be constructed on an ANG-owned parcel, and the company will own, operate, and maintain the facility. Construction is set to begin this November and ANG anticipates a spring 2016 opening.
