GE’s CNG In A Box and Wayne Dispensers, WEH Nozzles
Pennsylvania’s VNG is getting ready to open its first compressed natural gas fueling station. The facility will be co-located in a retail BP gasoline station in Philadelphia, with a convenience store and a Dunkin Donuts outlet, to fuel light duty natural gas vehicles, beginning in July.
VNG’s goal is “to create a national CNG fueling network to lead this country in the development of the light-duty NGV market.”
VNG is using a GE CNG In A Box compression unit at the Philadelphia station. A twin-hose Wayne dispenser will be fitted with pistol-grip fueling nozzles from Germany’s WEH.
Boston Coming Too
VNG is also putting in stations in the Boston area, where it hopes to open two by year-end, says VP Paul Kouroupas.
“VNG takes responsibility for the purchase, installation, maintenance, monitoring, ownership and continued operation of the fueling equipment, providing retail CNG fueling at existing gasoline stations.”
“We eliminate any need for you to invest in the land, equipment, personnel, and management of a company-owned CNG fueling facility,” the company says. “We make the investment. You experience the benefits.”
