Port Tampa Partners to Construct CNG Fueling Station
Port Tampa Bay has secured a deal with Integral Energy to bring a new fueling station that will include CNG pumps, a convenience store and restaurant. This week, Port Tampa Bay’s Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the construction.
“Integral Energy’s facility is an exceptional fit for the Port,” said Port Tampa Bay President/CEO Paul Anderson. “Not only do we welcome clean fuel alternatives which are domestically produced, this station will support the thousands of trucks and growing number of service providers at the Port every day.”
The station will be open to both commercial and passenger vehicles, with four CNG pumps designed to service long-haul trucking, as well as plenty of surface parking for drivers wanting to refuel as well.
“As a company based here in Tampa, we couldn’t be happier to partner with the Port of Tampa Bay for this project,” said Anddrikk Frazier, President and CEO of Integral Energy. “This station will allow fleet vehicles to reliably and safely begin to shift to CNG knowing that fuel will be available and convenient. CNG is better for our planet as well as budgets, and we are here to help provide our city with a cleaner and cheaper way to transport goods from our Port.”
