IGS CNG Services, a complete solutions provider for the natural gas vehicle industry, and Rumpke Waste & Recycling have partnered to build a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station at Rumpke’s Columbus location in the U.S. State of Ohio. Together with other planned works, IGS will soon extend its network to 15 CNG stations across five states.
The Columbus station began operating on August 7, 2017. Rumpke enlisted the company to build, own and operate a private time-fill station for its fleet of 48 CNG waste and recycling trucks.
“Our trucks play a critical role in providing essential services for more than 300,000 residences and businesses in Central Ohio,” said Andrew Rumpke, area president at Rumpke. “As Rumpke continues adding CNG trucks to our fleet, we recognize the need for an on-site CNG station.”
IGS Future Plans
IGS CNG Services continues to invest in its mission to drive energy independence. “Compressed natural gas remains a viable, domestic, cost-effective fueling option for fleets. Our turn-key approach to ownership, operation and maintenance of both public and private stations continues to be a suitable solution for fleets of all sizes across a number of industries,” said Mike Gatt, vice president of IGS CNG Services.
- The purchase of an existing public station in Monona, Wisconsin from NGV Fueling Services, to be enhanced with an additional dispenser under the diesel canopy;
- A new CNG station with support from National Fuel near Erie, Pennsylvania, able to accommodate all fleets, including class 8 semi-trucks.
Together with the Rumpke station in Columbus, these three locations will bring IGS CNG Services’ network to 15 stations located throughout Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. The company says this represents a sustained commitment to building out CNG infrastructure, which spans multiple industries and regions throughout the country.
