‘We’re Swinging at Every RFP,’ Says Company Spokesman
TruStar Energy expects to make more announcements regarding compressed natural gas fueling infrastructure soon. Each TruStar win means more Ariel compressors packaged by ANGI Energy, and related equipment.
UPS spread the word last week that it will spend an additional $100 million on CNG trucks, with a dozen new CNG stations by TruStar to support them (F&F, March 15).
“Building out the CNG fueling infrastructure is a vital part of making cleaner alternative fuels available for leading companies, such as UPS,” said TruStar Energy president Adam Comora.
12 Stations in Nine States Following 15 in 2015
UPS plans to add 380 new CNG-fueled Kenworth tractors to its growing alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet.
The 12 new TruStar CNG stations for UPS are to be built in Amarillo, Chattanooga, Columbia, S.C., El Paso, Fort Worth, Kansas City, Kan., Phoenix, Reno, San Antonio, Tifton, Ga., Trinidad, Colo., and Willow Grove, Pa.
In 2015, TruStar Energy built 15 CNG fueling stations for UPS.
TruStar Energy uses Ariel compressors packaged by ANGI, says TruStar marketing director Jeffry Swertfeger. The size of the compressors is dependent upon the overall amount of fuel needed and the available gas from the local utility.
TruStar Energy uses PSB dryers exclusively, Swertfeger says, ranging from small single-tower off-skid regenerative dryers to larger twin-tower on-skid automatic regenerative units.
“In terms of new business, we’re swinging at every RFP with several slated to fall,” he told F&F.
