Formal Kickoff of Station with GE in Eaton Next Week
Sparq Natural Gas is opening Colorado’s northernmost public-access compressed natural gas fueling outlet, staging a ceremony with partners including Noble Energy and GE Oil & Gas in Eaton, east of Fort Collins, on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 27.
The Eaton station features the “next generation” CNG-In-A-Box technology from GE with a 200-horsepower compressor, says Sparq CEO Norman Herrera. The station also has a 50-horsepower Bauer compressor, he told F&F.
“The Eaton public CNG station is close to several area schools – providing better access to the cleaner fuel alternative,” states am email notice circulated today.
“GE’s next generation CNG-In A-Box technology is smaller, faster to build and more affordable than other technologies,” Sparq says.
The Agfinity Cooperative Too
Also working with Sparq on the Eaton station is the local Agfinity cooperative, which offers fuel (including propane), crop and turf nutrients and animal feed, and which operates auto and hardware centers for bsuinesses and consumers.
“Future projects could leverage Agfinity’s size and scale to expand into other areas of northern Colorado,” Herrera says. At least two new stations are planned for Sparq’s home state of Oklahoma by year-end too, he says.
