$2 Million Station for City, Schools and Local Fleets

American Fueling Systems has opened a compressed natural gas fueling outlet in Columbus, Ga. – the first in Columbus and the second-largest in Georgia, the company says. “This $2 million facility will service the fueling needs for the City of Columbus, Muscogee County Schools, and many other public and private fleets in the area,” states an AFS release.

The $2 million American Fueling Systems CNG outlet is the first in Columbus, Ga. and second largest in the state, AFS says.

The new station has twin 250-horspeower Cobey compressors able to produce more than 1,150 standard cubic feet per minute for delivery via three dual-hose Kraus dispensers. There is more than 60,000 scf storage in a 37-foot, three-bank cascade.

The station is located just two tenths of a mile from Interstate-185 and is open 24/7 with all major credit cards accepted. It has sufficient turning radius “for any type of truck,” AFS says.

‘AFS Will Develop Unique Solutions’

“Our aim is to become the first mover in the city of Columbus,” AFS CEO Rahim Charania said in a release. “AFS has identified tremendous potential for alternative fuel sales in the Columbus area.

“This market is primed for growth,” Charania said, “and AFS will develop unique solutions to accelerate the rate of growth through its active business development capabilities.”

“Our goal is to meet our customer’s needs and provide them solutions that can save them money and improve their environment,” said AFS consultant Sergio Martinez.

The AFS grand opening event in Columbus, Ga. featured Columbus deputy city manager Lisa Goodwin and with business and community leaders from Liberty Utilities, Clean Cities Georgia, Penske and the Muscogee County School District.
