A new compressed natural gas (CNG) station has opened in Kansas City, Mo. – located on the northeast corner of the Midway Ford Truck Center, according to the Kansas City Star.
Sited at 7801 N.E. 38th St., the new station will mainly serve commercial vehicles equipped with CNG-prepped gasoline engines, in addition to large trucks serving the Hunt Midwest commercial development and foreign trade zone. Specifically, the report mentions the station will serve Ford Motor Co.’s Transit van and F-150 pickup truck, which are manufactured at the Ford Claycomo plant.
Clean Energy Fuels Corp., a manufacturer of non-lubricated CNG compressors, currently owns and operates the station.
As previously reported, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. recently introduced what the company calls the most advanced, heavy-duty, non-lubricated compressor in the natural gas fueling market – the CleanCNG. Developed by engineers at the company’s subsidiary Clean Energy Compression in British Columbia, this new compressor features significant design and engineering improvements, including standardized and modular construction, ultra-low vibration and noise, and design scalability.
