Public-Access ANGI-Ariel Station East of Los Angeles
Is Designed for High-Volume Users in an ‘Industry Hub’
American Natural Gas is promising a “premium fueling experience” at its new compressed natural gas fueling outlet, a public-access station in Fontana, east of Los Angeles.
“Fontana and the fleets that operate here have set a precedent for CNG usage,” ANG CEO Drew West said in a release. The new station, near the intersection of Interstates 10 and 15, “demonstrates how, with an exclusive focus on CNG, we’re able to listen to drivers, problem-solve with partners, and source stronger equipment.
“Ultimately, we create the 100% reliable experience leading CNG fleets deserve,” he said.
Ryder and Penske Are Neighbors
ANG describes the location as a high-transit area near numerous transportation, distribution, and manufacturing centers – a “trucking industry hub.” Neighbors include Ryder System and Penske Truck Leasing.
The new station is outfitted three 300-horsepower Ariel JGQ/2 compressors packaged by ANGI Energy with an ANGI dryer. It has three ANGI dispensers equipped with NGV1 nozzles for light and medium duty use and NGV2 nozzles to accommodate heavy duty and transit vehicles.
‘All-Star Maintenance and Operations’
The new station can produce more than 30 gallons of fuel per minute and dispense it at up to 22 gallons per minute.It is optimized for high-capacity, large volume users.
“Our all-star maintenance and operations team is looking forward to serving an area where fleets understand the value CNG specialists can bring,” said ANG operations VP Brent Tesla.
Tesla said he looks forward “to building personal relationships with our partners in Fontana and doing whatever it takes to keep their fuel flowing and fleets on the road.”
Fruit of the Questar Acquisition
ANG notes that owns and operates approximately 40 fueling stations in 13 states, including stations in development. ANG expanded its national network with the acquisition of Questar Fueling late last year (F&F, December 28, 2016).
The Fontana property, as well others in California, Arizona, Utah, and Texas, were part of the Questar buy.
