Contract to Build CNG Station in Tampa as Freightliner M2s Added
Vocational Energy is teaming with the beverage distributor J.J. Taylor to build a large compressed natural gas fueling station in Tampa. Taylor is taking delivery of 43 CNG-fueled Freightliner M2-112 tractors, and is to add 48 more by 2014, Vocational says.
“We have been looking at alternate fuels for the past three years for two purposes: clean air and the effect of diesel fluorocarbons on the environment, and the financial benefits of alternative fuels,” Taylor VP Jose Rivera says in a Vocational release.
The new Tampa station should be operational by January 2013, said Vocational Energy president Scott Edelbach. It will feature Ariel compressors, and be capable of producing 625 DGE (diesel gallon equivalents) of CNG per hour.
J.J. Taylor, founded in 1958 with locations in Florida and Minnesota, is one of the five largest beverage distributors in the United States.
