TruStar Energy Builds CNG Fueling Station for Advanced Disposal
TruStar Energy has opened a new time-fill fueling station designed and built for Advanced Disposal in Hartland, Wisconsin. TruStar Energy and Advanced Disposal have partnered on 11 stations nationwide. The time-fill station consists of two 200 horsepower compressors with fueling hoses to fuel 58 trucks and came at a cost of $1.7 million.
“We are on track to meet our goal to increase our CNG fleet to 15 percent by the end of 2015,” said Advanced Disposal CEO Richard Burke. “This cleaner fuel source lowers our company’s carbon footprint, reduces costs of operations and ultimately helps us achieve our goals of being good stewards of the environment while enhancing stakeholder returns.”
Currently, 11 of the company’s trucks will refuel at the station every night. As the diesel trucks in Advanced Disposal’s fleet reach the end of their useful life, the company will replace many with CNG-fueled trucks. The company expects to have as many as 58 CNG-fueled trucks in their fleet to serve the community over the next several years. Customers will notice the logo on the trucks reads “powered by CNG.”
“Waste disposal and environmental service fleets are critical to the well-being of our neighborhoods,” said Lorrie Lisek, Executive Director of Wisconsin Clean Cities Coalition. “We appreciate Advanced Disposal and TruStar Energy’s investment in Wisconsin’s CNG fueling infrastructure and recognize them for their contribution toward creating a clean fuel future for our state.”
