Station Will be AmpCNG’s Eighth in Texas, 20th Overall

AmpCNG is announcing today a new public-access compressed natural gas fueling agreement with US Foods. “Under the deal, AmpCNG will build a public-access fueling station in Buda, Texas to serve US Foods, the station’s anchor tenant,” states a release.


The station adjacent to the US Foods distribution center on Turnersville Road is to have two dual-hose dispensers serving two lanes. CNG fueling will be powered by twin 200-horsepower GE Gemini compressors, packaged by CDW, yielding about 1,400 scfm/standard cubic feet per minute.

Target fill rate is 10 to 12 DGE/diesel gallon equivalents per minute, says AmpCNG CEO Grant Zimmerman.

Summer 2017 to Open

AmpCNG expects to break ground in early 2017 and plans to open the Buda station in summer 2017. Buda is about 15 miles south of Austin.

AmpCNG notes that US Foods recently won a TERP/Texas Emissions Reduction Plan grant for 40 new CNG trucks, “bringing its Buda, Texas-based CNG fleet to a total of fifty.”

“Increasing the number of CNG vehicles in our fleet allows us to continue to reduce our annual fuel costs while reducing the amount of emissions emitted during our daily deliveries to customers,” US Foods transportation VP Dario Skocir says in the AmpCNG announcement.

‘Improvements Across the Company’

“US Foods continues to make improvements across the company to reduce our environmental footprint and allow us to serve our customers in an energy efficient way,” he said.

The new station will be AmpCNG’s eighth in Texas, bringing its total station network to 20. The company’s other Texas stations are in Amarillo, Harrold, Waco, Brock, Rosenberg, Sweetwater and Kerrville.
