CNG via Trucks as ‘Easy to Implement, Scalable Solution’
West Nyack, N.Y.-based Mobile Fueling Solutions says it will help solve the natural gas fueling infrastructure in the U.S. with “Virtual Pipeline” technology from technology from GNC Galileo of Argentina. updated November 20
“We have the complete solution,” MFS CEO Dean Sloane says in a release. He also heads vehicle converter Clean Vehicle Solutions, which re-located to West Nyack last year.
“This easy to implement, scalable solution will enable many more fleets to access the significant savings and environmental benefits afforded by CNG,” Sloane said.
‘I’m Here to Move the Fuel’
“The ability to move fuel to the fleet is the bridge to increased natural gas use,” he told F&F.
MFS has a deal with Trillium CNG to fill Galileo-supplied “pods” at Commack, on Long Island, and truck the CNG to customers. The MFS trucks will be able to dispense 3,600-psi fuel directly, or pods can be offloaded to supply a fixed dispenser unit at a so-called “daughter” station.
“I’m here to move the fuel,” Sloan says. His goal, at least initially, is to charge the same price a customer would pay at the mother station.
Talks are underway with Brooklyn-based beverage distributors, he says, as well as area paratransit operators. If all goes well, the first MFS product could flow as soon as February.
“With limited or no capital expenditure, MFS provides fleet owners the opportunity to test and deploy a comprehensive CNG solution with minimal risk, thereby greatly simplifying the decision making process.”
New York City is a logical first market for MFS-supplied CNG, as “red tape,” says one local course, has prevented leading CNG providers from executing their plans for conventional fueling stations.
