American Natural Gas (ANG), a distributor of alternative motor fuels, has opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Gates, N.Y., a suburb of Rochester. The company says the fast-fill facility is located at the intersection of I-390 (Exit 19) and Chili Avenue, in close proximity to I-590, I-490, regional distribution centers, as well as the Greater Rochester International Airport.
“The more stations we have, the more realistic it is for businesses to convert and fulfill their environmental impact aspirations,” comments Drew West, CEO of ANG. “We are excited to expand our New York CNG network into Rochester and look forward to building relationships with regional long haul, distribution and public transportation fleet owners.”
“Natural gas will transform the truck transportation industry because it’s a cleaner and cheaper fuel than gasoline or diesel,” adds Mark Assini, Gates Town Supervisor. “Gates is grateful to ANG for building one of the very first commercial natural gas fueling stations in the region, and our town is proud to have a role in this cutting-edge transformation.”
The three-lane station features Bennett CRIND dispensers equipped with NGV1 nozzles for light- and medium-duty use and NGV2 nozzles to accommodate heavy-duty and transit vehicles, as well as 400 HP Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer.
