Largest Private CNG Station in North America Completed

| USA, Auburn Hills MI

Chrysler TruStar Energy CNG station DetroitTruStar Energy, a U.S. developer of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations, has completed construction of a private CNG fueling station for FCA US LLC. With six Ariel compressors able to dispense CNG at nearly 40 gasoline-gallon equivalent (GGE) per minute, it is the largest private fast-fill station in North America.

Located at the company’s North American Detroit Terminal, the CNG station will fuel 179 tractor trucks in FCA Transport’s fleet with cleaner, domestically produced natural gas.

The station features six Ariel 300-horsepower compressors packaged by ANGI, a PSB dual-tower gas dryer and three ANGI fast-fill dispensers.

The FCA Transport fleet delivers parts and materials to FCA US assembly plants in Michigan, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada.

“With this new CNG station, FCA US is taking a leadership position in its industry—and in creating a lower carbon future,” said Adam Comora, President of TruStar Energy. “Companies that have fleets are beginning to take a longer strategic look at migrating their vehicles to domestic compressed natural gas. Even in a lower oil price environment, certain CNG applications still make economic sense providing significant cost savings while allowing corporations to make progress toward sustainability goals.”

The largest private CNG fueling station built by TruStar Energy to date, the project was completed for the FCA Transport fleet in under six months—several months less than the industry standard of 12-18 months. TruStar Energy owns and will operate and maintain the station, providing CNG for FCA US under a long-term supply contract.

TruStar Energy has constructed over a hundred private and public CNG fueling stations across the country.
