TruStar Energy Completes Construction on Large Station for FCA US Fleet
TruStar Energy has completed construction of a private CNG fueling station at FCA US’s North American Detroit Terminal in Detroit, Michigan. The new station will fuel 179 CNG trucks in FCA Transport’s fleet with cleaner, domestically produced natural gas. With six Ariel compressors able to dispense CNG at nearly 40 GGE per minute, it is the largest private fast-fill station in North America, according to TruStar.
“Allocating FCA US resources to convert the fleet to CNG not only yields the company long-term cost savings, it significantly reduces CO2 emissions and continues the company’s leadership in the areas of technological advancement and sustainability,” said Marty DiFiore, head of FCA Transport. “We’re also sending a strong signal to the Detroit community that we’re going to play a supportive role in the City’s comeback.”
The FCA Transport fleet delivers parts and materials to FCA US assembly plants in Michigan, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada. The largest private CNG fueling station built by TruStar Energy to date, the project was completed for the FCA Transport fleet in under six months. TruStar Energy owns, will operate and maintain the station and will provide CNG for FCA US under a long-term supply contract.
“TruStar Energy worked closely with FCA US to build a tailored solution on a very aggressive time schedule,” said Scott Edelbach, General Manager for Construction and Service Operations for TruStar Energy. “Getting it done quickly and on time with our partners and DTE Energy delivered significant cost savings for FCA US.”
The station features six Ariel 300-horsepower compressors packaged by ANGI, a PSB dual-tower gas dryer and three ANGI fast-fill dispensers.
