The City of Beverly Hills, Calif., has selected Mansfield Gas Equipment Systems (MGES) to build a compressed natural gas (CNG) station for the municipality's light-duty trucks, vans and refuse trucks. MGES has also been tapped to provide on-site services through a five-year contract.
The city says the CNG station – the first in Beverly Hills – will allow for more convenient refueling and enable the city to expand its natural gas vehicle fleet. The project has the full support of Beverly Hills officials, with the city council having unanimously approved the plan.
Construction of the new CNG fueling site, which will offer both fast-fill and overnight-fill capabilities, will begin in the next few weeks, MGES says. The station is expected to be operational in spring 2012.
MGES, a subsidiary of Mansfield Oil Co., notes that it has built more than 150 CNG station projects.
