North Carolina to See 32 Additional Autocar Xpeditor Trucks
Raleigh, N.C.-headquartered Waste Industries is adding 32 compressed natural gas-fueled Autocar trucks to its Brunswick County service area on the Carolina coast, for which Mansfield Gas Equipment Systems will supply a fueling station and CNG-related facility upgrades.
The MGES station in Bolivia, N.C. will have 23 double time-fill posts, capable of fueling 46 vehicles at the same time – thus allowing for fleet expansion.
The 32 new Autocar Xpeditor trucks are in addition to Waste Industries’ fleet of 10 Autocar and nine Mack trucks already in service in Durham, N.C. MGES provided the fueling infrastructure there as well (F&F, August 9).
Natural Gas Heating and Washing, Too
Mansfield notes that it will also provide a fully functional methane detection system at the Brunswick facility. In addition, Waste Industries is switching related equipment from propane to natural gas, says area GM Greg Brinkley.
“I’m heating the shop with natural gas and I’ll be pressure-washing the trucks with natural gas,” Brinkley told F&F.
The project is expected to be completed by mid-April.
