CarterEnergy, a division of World Fuel Services Corp., is in the process of building its first public fueling station that will offer compressed natural gas (CNG). Furthermore, the company has announced plans to convert some of its own fleet vehicles to CNG.
The new Cardlock fueling station will be located in the Fairfax, Kan., region at 401 Kindleberger in Kansas City. It will offer area fleets diesel and diesel exhaust fluid, in addition to CNG. The project is powered by CNG@WORK, a program from World Fuel Services that helps fleets convert to CNG.
Dan Genovese, World Fuel Services' director of CNG development, says, “In addition to providing convenient, public access to low-cost, fast-fill CNG fueling at the Fairfax facility, we will be helping current customers and commercial fleets seeking alternative fueling solutions with every step of the conversion process.”
CarterEnergy also plans to convert a portion of its fleet to CNG this year.
“Through our partnership with MHC Kenworth, we will be exchanging nine diesel-powered units for nine CNG-powered units (Kenworth T680 and T880 models) to start,’ explainsÂ Shannon Stringer, vice president of transportation and logistics for CarterEnergy. ‘The new vehicles are expected to go into service starting mid-March through early April.”
