American Natural Gas Builds Public CNG Station in Upstate New York
American Natural Gas (ANG) announced it will unveil the first public CNG fueling station north of Albany, New York, in January 2016. Currently under construction, the facility is located off of I-87 in Saratoga Springs, which is halfway between New York City and Montreal.
The W.J. Grande Industrial Park Station is the third New York State station announced by ANG in the past two months and the second public one. It will become an important point along ANG’s growing corridor of public CNG stations in the Northeast.
As ANG designed the station, it selected top-of-the line equipment with regional long haul, public transportation, and return-to-base fleets in mind. The station will have two cold weather-reliable 200 HP Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer. It will feature three fueling lanes and consumer-friendly Bennett CRIND dispensers that can accommodate Class 8 (WB-67) semi tractor-trailers.
The station is under construction on an ANG-owned parcel that the company will continue to own, operate, and maintain.
“New, innovative infrastructure like this provides alternatives in how drivers fuel their day—and makes it easier for us all to reduce our carbon footprint and play a larger role in our campaign to combat climate change,” said Congressman Paul D. Tonko.
