Public-Access Station in Saratoga Springs Said to Be First for Region
American Natural Gas is trumpeting a new public-access compressed natural gas fueling outlet in its hometown of Saratoga Springs, N.Y. as “the first and only between Albany and Montreal.”
The facility is under construction at the W.J. Grande Industrial Park of Intertstate-87. It is expected to open in January.
“We believe this will be an opportunity for those that desire to switch to a cleaner, more reliable fuel solution, but don’t have the luxury or budget to build their own infrastructure,” ANG CEO Drew West said in a release.
ANG says that it’s guided regional fleets, such as Tops Friendly Markets in Buffalo (F&F, September 3) and Casella Waste Systems in Rutland, Vt., through their conversions to CNG.
Third New York ANG Station in Two Months
The W.J. Grande Industrial Park Station is the third New York State station announced by ANG in the past two months and the second public one. “It will become an important point along ANG’s growing corridor of public CNG stations in the Northeast and extend the range of travel for CNG-converted fleets,” ANG says.
ANG says it designed the new Saratoga Springs station with regional long haul, public transportation, and return-to-base fleets in mind. It will have two cold weather-reliable 200-horsepower Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer. It will feature three fueling lanes and consumer-friendly dispensers from Bennett Pump that can accommodate Class 8 semi tractor-trailers.
