Wisconsin CNG Facility Helps Hauler Meet Fleet Conversion Goals
TruStar Energy announced today the opening of another compressed natural gas fueling outlet for Advanced Disposal: a large time-fill station in Hartland, Wisc.
“We are on track to meet our goal to increase our CNG fleet to 15% by the end of 2015,” Advanced Disposal CEO Richard Burke says in the TruStar announcement.
TruStar and Advanced Disposal have now partnered on 11 stations nationwide.
11 Trucks Now, Targeting 58
The TruStar-built Hartland station has twin 200-horsepower ANGI compressors and fueling hoses for 58 CNG trucks.
Currently 11 Advanced Disposal trucks will fuel at the station each night. “As the diesel trucks in Advanced Disposal’s fleet reach the end of their useful life, the company will replace many with the cleaner, quieter CNG-fueled trucks,” TruStar says. A total of 58 may fuel at Hartland.
A TruStar station for Advanced Disposal was opened in Macon, Ga. last month (F&F, September 29).
‘Reduces Costs of Operations’
“Our commitment to CNG is a significant one that we’ve made to keep our fleet running cleaner and to creating a more sustainable planet for future generations,” Burke said.
“This cleaner fuel source lowers our company’s carbon footprint, reduces costs of operations and ultimately helps us achieve our goals of being good stewards of the environment while enhancing stakeholder returns.”
