Bauer-Powered Time-Fill in Fort Wayne for Fueling New Mixers
Ozinga Energy has provided a time-fill compressed natural gas fueling installation for the Terex Construction factory in Fort Wayne, Ind. The facility has a compressor from Virginia-based Bauer, and two time-fill fueling posts from Northlake, Ill.-based Bristol Energy.
Terex will use the equipment to fuel the CNG-fueled variant of its FD5000 “Great Lakes” concrete mixer, a product introduced at the recent ConExpo-Con/AGG 2014. The new truck is powered by the 11.9-liter ISX12 G from Cummins Westport and has Type IV CNG fuel cylinders from Hexagon Lincoln in an Agility Fuel Systems array (F&F, March 13).
“These new CNG mixers improve on the existing designs for front-discharge concrete mixers with concealed CNG tanks and a reduced overall truck weight,” Ozinga says.
Ozinga Is Committed to CNG
Chicago-based Ozinga claims the nation’s largest fleet of CNG mixers, and has established Ozinga Energy to fuel its own fleet of nearly 150 natural gas vehicles at three public fueling stations in the Midwest (F&F, October 11).
Ozinga Energy is now a Bauer distributor.
With the addition of the Fort Wayne facility, Terex will “be able to fuel their brand new CNG concrete mixers overnight as they leave the assembly line,” Ozinga says. “The construction process went smoothly and quickly, with infrastructure establishment taking about three days and equipment installation taking just one day.”
Upwards of 20 Orders in Hand
Ozinga Energy will also install a methane monitor at the Terex facility, and says it will provide ongoing support.
“Ozinga Energy is our one-stop for all CNG fill station, facility upgrades, training, and maintenance needs,” Terex engineer Mike Johnson says in an Ozinga post.
Johnson told F&F that Terex has about 20 orders for the CNG-fueled FD5000.
