Mobile Fueling Solutions (MFS), a Morristown, N.J.-based company that delivers and dispenses compressed natural gas (CNG) on-site for fleets through Galileo Technologies’ Virtual Pipeline, says it now refuels 25 tractors for Manhattan Beer Distributors (MBD), one of the main beverage distributors in Metro New York.
“Simply not having our drivers drive off-route to fuel our tractors is a great convenience for us, and MFS has been reliable and professional from the start,” says Juan Corcino, Manhattan Beer fleet manager, in a release from MFS.
According to MFS President Luis Pereira, the main advantage of the Virtual Pipeline is its VST-2 trailer, which is equipped with a CNG container that houses a hydraulic compressor and a dispenser. Pereira says this feature allows the trailer to run as a mobile station with a fuel stock of CNG higher than 700 GGE.
“This innovative system, engineered and manufactured by Galileo Technologies, allows us to extend the scope of the current infrastructure of CNG stations and to fill tractors right at their fleet yards,” explains Pereira. “For the solution we have designed for MBD with the support of Verdek, one of the Galileo distributors in North America, we take the CNG from a station owned by Elizabeth Gas in Union, N.J., which is 40 miles away from the MBD’s site.”
