A new public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station is opening in Mulberry, Fla.
The station, located at 1009 E. Canal St. (State Road 60) in Polk County, is a partnership between Integral Energy, Trillium CNG, Dillon Transport and The Mosaic Co. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on April 21.
Florida Public Utilities and Tampa Electric will provide natural gas and electric utility services, respectively. The station will be open 24/7 and offer three fueling positions.
‘The new CNG station not only provides a cleaner and more efficient solution for our fleet partners, but also establishes the infrastructure that opens the door for smaller companies and government entities, such as the school system, to make the conversion,’ says Anddrikk Frazier, managing partner for Integral Energy.
‘The new station in Mulberry provides many benefits and demonstrates our long-term commitment to the area. Jobs have been created through the construction and planning phases and will continue as we hire new truck drivers as well as people to maintain the property,’ says Charles Musgrove, chief operating officer of Dillon Transport. ‘We now have 100 trucks in central Florida and are eager to continue expanding our services.’
