Second in the Area, First Near Greater Rochester International Airport
American Natural Gas announced plans today for a new compressed natural gas fueling station outside Rochester, N.Y. The public access facility will be in close proximity to regional distributors and the Greater Rochester International Airport.
Construction is set to begin this November. ANG anticipates a spring 2016 opening.
Last month, ANG unveiled Tops Friendly Markets’ fueling station. Also in western New York State, as the grocery retailer committed to converting its entire distribution fleet from diesel to CNG (F&F, September 3).
Return-to-Base CNG Works Well
“Return-to-base operations, such as those employed by grocery stores, are particularly good candidates for converting to CNG,” ANG CEO Drew West said in a release. “We’ve heard the demand from these fleets and others, including regional long haul and public transportation companies, and are excited to make this alternative fuel more accessible for Rochester businesses.”
ANG says that with a focus on cold weather-reliability, it selected 400-horsepower Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer. The station will feature three fueling lanes and Bennett dispensers with NGV1 heavy-duty truck/bus nozzles to accommodate Class 8 (WB-67) semi tractor-trailers.
ANG will own, operate, and maintain the new Rochester facility.
