Cobey Compressors and Bennett Dispensers
American Natural Gas, which is itself headquartered in upstate New York and which recently opened the first compressed natural gas fueling station in its hometown of Saratoga Springs, is now talking up the opening of another – the first public-access CNG station in Gates, N.Y., adjacent to the Greater Rochester International Airport.
“We continue to hear and respond to the increasing need for alternative fuel infrastructure,” ANG CEO Drew West said in a release today.
“The more stations we have, the more realistic it is for businesses to convert and fulfill their environmental impact aspirations,” he said, adding that ANG is moving to build relationships “with regional long haul, distribution and public transportation fleet owners.”
‘It Will Accelerate the Development of CNG Fleets’
“Natural gas will transform the truck transportation industry because it’s a cleaner and cheaper fuel than gasoline or diesel,” Gates Town Supervisor Mark Assini says in the ANG release.
“The opening of the ANG station in Rochester is a significant event,” added David Keefe, Clean Cities coordinator for the Genesee Region. “As the first public CNG station in our region, it will accelerate the development of CNG fleets in our area.
“We have been waiting for this for a long time,” Keefe said.
As with other ANG stations, the Gates facility has Cobey Energy compressors (400-horsepower each) and Bennett CRIND dispensers equipped with NGV1 nozzles for light and medium-duty use, and NGV2 nozzles to accommodate heavy-duty and transit vehicles.
The three-lane, fast-fuel station is designed for cold-weather operation. It has a Xebec gas dryer.
