Firm Trumpets $8 Million Investment in 25 Trucks,
Installs ANGI Energy Station with 26 Time-Fill Hoses
Utah’s Geneva Rock Products is claiming a “first in its industry” as the regional construction materials powerhouse has invested more than $8 million in a fleet of 25 compressed natural gas ready-mix concrete trucks and a facility to fuel them.
The new station is located in South Salt Lake, and can fill all 25 trucks simultaneously.
It is powered by a 200-horsepower, 400-scfm Ariel compressor packaged by ANGI Energy, says independent sales rep David Duey of D&S Services. “There are 13 twin-hose time fill poles for a total of 26 fueling hoses on the time fill,” he says.
D&S “also provided a service group for the maintenance and upkeep of the fueling station,” Duey told F&F.
Lowering our emissions is of utmost importance to us as a company and guides our overall operating decisions,” Geneva Rock president Jim Golding says in the firm’s CNG announcement.
“This specific purchase and installation is just part of the company’s overall clean air initiative, in which the company has already invested more than $30 million to lower emissions and improve Utah’s air quality,” he said.
Geneva Rock says that its materials “are found in buildings across the Wasatch Front.
“When considering materials for streets and interstate infrastructure, it is estimated that 50% of the roadways from Brigham City to Santaquin have been produced with Geneva Rock material.”
Geneva Rock says too that it donated $25,000 to UCAIR, the Utah Clean Air Partnership, to support grants and education programs in 2017.
