SSP Appoints Tulsa Gas Technologies as First CNG Plus Service Center:
Everything from Bids to Building of Natural Gas Vehicle Fueling Stations
Ohio’s SSP has named Tulsa Gas Technologies as its first “CNG Plus” service center, meaning that instrumentation, valves, tube fittings and tubing designed for the quick construction of compressed natural gas fueling stations will be available through TGT – as will service and support for SSP equipment.
“Construction services include assistance with bid preparation, training, equipment rental, and material supply for above ground and underground interconnect piping needed to build a CNG station,” states a release.
“We had a great inaugural year in 2014, but need to move even faster for contractors building CNG stations,” SSP applications engineer Gregg Lennon says in a the CNG Plus announcement.
Why Ship from Ohio?
TGT president Tom Sewell “was an early supporter of the new materials and methods we introduced,” Lennon says, “and urged us to find ways of making them available quicker and without the expense of less-than-truckload shipments from Ohio.”
“Tulsa Gas Technologies has 24 years of experience building stations around the world. Being able to provide CNG Plus tooling, training, and materials is a logical extension for their business.”
￼CNG station owners will benefit from lower installation costs, staged tooling and in-stock tubing, SSP says.
‘Quicker Grand Openings’
“SSP is helping us minimize waste and reduce construction time from days to hours with products such as 5500 PSI 3⁄4” coiled tubing, valves and fittings,” Sewell says in the SSP announcement. “We’re installing complete CNG systems including the dispenser, compressors and storage vessels and facilitating quicker grand openings.”
CNG Plus products and services were used on 40 CNG stations in 2014, SSP says, claiming “approximately 20% of the stations constructed in the U.S.”
