Orlando Facility Will Be Infrastructure Provider’s First
TruStar Energy has broken ground in Orlando for its first-ever TruStar Energy-branded, public-access fast-fill compressed natural gas fueling station.
“We continue to see rapid adoption of CNG vehicles across industries and we look forward to providing more public fueling options,” TruStar president Adam Comora says in a release.
“TruStar Energy has a strong presence in Florida and many fleet owners there have told us they need additional fueling options in the Orlando area,” adds sales VP Scott Edelbach.
Targeting Class 8 Trucks, Consumers Too
The new station will be on Exchange Drive, within the Orlando Central Park development – “a location that is very close to several major fleets as well as a heavy traffic corridor,” he said.
The Orlando station has been designed to serve Class 8 vehicles with four traffic lanes and two fueling islands. It will be open 24/7 and will take commercial fuel cards like Comdata or Fuelman, as well as all major credit cards.
Hardware will include Ariel compressors and PSB dryer.
“This station will be able to serve several hundred CNG vehicles per day,” Edelbach said. It’s being built with future expansion in mind as well.
Autumn Completion, More Next Year
The TruStar-branded station in Orlando is to be completed in the fall, “with plans for additional branded public stations to be built in strategic locations throughout the country in 2015.”
TruStar began building private CNG stations in 2008 as Vocational Energy and has capacity now to build more than 40 per year.
