GP Strategies Corp., a global performance improvement solutions provider, has signed a contract to design and construct two compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in San Bernardino and Montclair, Calif., for the Omnitrans public transit agency.
According to GP Strategies, the contract value exceeds $7 million, with project completion expected in the first quarter of 2017.
GP Strategies, which plans to provide the engineering services, integrate the equipment and serve as the turnkey general contractor on the projects, will work with Omnitrans to customize the CNG fueling stations to suit the needs of the regional fleets.
The company asserts that each station will include new natural gas and electrical supply, multiple 400-hp CNG compressors, CNG storage, and two to three CNG dispensers. GP Strategies says it will also provide one year of maintenance for the stations, with the possibility of Omnitrans exercising options for up to two additional years.
“GP Strategies built Omnitrans’ existing natural gas fueling stations in early 2000, and we are excited to be partnering with them again to help them drive their vision to grow public transportation service,” says Michael Mackey, vice president of GP Strategies’ alternative fuels division. “It’s rewarding to work on projects that support building America’s alternative fuels infrastructure.”
