Fairless Hills, Pa. Facility to Support 32 Trucks
Busy U.S. Oil reports a pact with Silvi Concrete to build a Gain Clean Fuel station to supply compressed natural gas to the concrete ready-mix firm in Fairless Hills, Pa., adjacent to Silvi’s Morrisville concrete plant.
According to U.S. Oil/Gain CNG, Silvi is adding 30 Oshkosh front discharge trucks with 12-liter CNG engines and two CNG tractors for cement hauling.
“Utilizing CNG will help us better manage our costs,” Silvi Concrete president Larry Silvo says in the fuel provider’s announcement. “Equally important, it will help us reach our goal of becoming more environmentally friendly while allowing us to deliver the best, most cost-efficient product to our customers,” Silvi said.
Construction at Fairless Hills is to be complete in November.
McNeilus Reported the Silvi CNG Order
“We’re on track to add at least 30 new stations per year as more carriers seek to convert their fleets” said Gain Clean Fuel GM Bill Renz “Our goal is to have more than 100 stations operational in the next three years.”
The McNeilus unit of Oshkosh previously reported the Silvi order for 30 CNG trucks with proprietary Ngen (next generation) brand factory-installed fuel systems (F&F, January 21). The McNeilus trucks for Silvi have Type IV CNG cylinders from Hexagon Lincoln.
