Alabama Outfit Offers a Wide Range of Propane and CNG Upfits
Alliance AutoGas is spreading the word that Alabama’s Phoenix Energy Corp has joined its national network of propane autogas conversion centers.
Alliance AutoGas is the authorized U.S. distributor of Prins autogas systems from The Netherlands. Phoenix already has experience with Prins propane vehicle maintenance, says company president Ken Hyde, and installs propane hardware from suppliers including Impco, Technocarb and Zavoli.
“Phoenix Energy is happy to partner with Alliance Autogas to aid the cause for domestic vehicular fuels,” Hyde says in an Alliance release.
“Phoenix has long been a proponent of domestic fuels for U.S. vehicles and propane is a large contributor to the overall solution,” he said. “Propane offers the end user a means of entering the alternative fuel use market with a low initial conversion and infrastructure costs.
Support Is Key
“As the need for alternative vehicular fuels increases in the U.S.,” Hyde said, “Phoenix and the Alliance team is poised to meet this demand with quality, safety, and overall fuel cost reduction for the end user.”
Alliance AutoGas notes that it coordinates propane autogas vehicle conversions, installs propane fueling facilities, and provides propane vehicle maintenance support and training through a network of more than 90 member companies and conversion centers. “It is of the highest importance that Alliance AutoGas provides a quality support network and keep the vehicles running on the road,” organization president Stuart Weidie says in the Phoenix announcement.
Pell City-based Phoenix handles compressed natural gas vehicle conversions too, using equipment from Impco, Landi Renzo USA, Technocarb and Zavoli, Hyde told F&F. Phoenix supports CNG-fueled vans with Westport (BAF) systems operated in his area by AT&T, too.
The firm builds CNG stations as well. Phoenix work includes a Tallahassee, Fla. facility supporting Leon County school buses (F&F, September 6, 2010). Phoenix has ordered equipment ANGI Energy for a new station in Douglas, Ga. too, Hyde says.
