American Natural Gas (ANG), a U.S. distributor of alternative motor fuels, and a portfolio company within HC2 Holdings, Inc., has opened a public compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Liverpool, New York, a suburb of Syracuse. Located less than one mile from exit 38 on the New York State Thruway (I-90), the Liverpool station will meet regional demand for high-performing, easily-accessible CNG fueling facilities for the region’s heavy-duty and long-haul trucking fleets.
“Our customers are helping drive our expansion, as we continue to hear and respond to their needs for alternative fuel infrastructure across New York State,” said Drew West, Chief Executive Officer of ANG. “This facility supports our customers with a strong addition to our network of stations and will offer easy on-and-off highway access for class 8 vehicles. It also creates new opportunities for fleets interested in CNG, which will now have convenient access to the cleaner, safer and more affordable fuel.”
ANG currently owns and operates approximately 40 fueling stations in 13 states across the United States, inclusive of stations in process and under development. In New York State, ANG’s developed a CNG network along I-90 for over-the-road-truck fleets traveling between Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and the Albany area.
This Liverpool station is built around cold weather-reliable systems, including a top-of-the-line 250 HP GE compressor packaged by Cobey Energy, with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer. The station features two Bennett CNG dispensers equipped with NGV1 nozzles for light and medium-duty use and NGV2 nozzles to accommodate heavy-duty and transit vehicles. The fast-fuel station is designed to accommodate high-capacity, large volume users.
Natural gas is the cleanest burning alternative fuel available that has the power to run heavy-duty vehicles. It is also quieter, safer, less expensive and abundant in America. Vehicles that run on natural gas generally emit 13 to 21 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than vehicles that run on gasoline.
A new station for Tennessee
Announced today, an ANG ribbon cutting event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. CDT for the very first public compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Fayetteville, Tennessee.
