CNG Source has announced that the company was formalizing a deal with V-Energia for a large, public compressed natural gas (CNG) station to be built in Mexico.
“Although V-Energia is a new company, its management team has been in the energy and fleet management business for about 20 years,” says Karim Bousfiha, vice president of marketing and business development for CNG Source. “Within the group, they operate several gas stations under the Pemex brand; they also operate a fleet management company, and lastly, they manufacture and provide one of the most advanced wet-fuel dispensers to the Mexican market. This is a seasoned team of professionals with a remarkable experience in providing fuel and services to fleets.”
“This will be a high-performance station, with capability for both the vehicular, as well as the virtual pipeline industry, serving businesses located off the natural gas pipeline network through tube trucks and GTMs,” continues Bousfiha.
One of the highlights of the new station is the equipment’s long uptime interval, reaching up to 16,000 hours of operation between major services, doubling those of the most advanced competitors, claims Bousfiha.
“The NGV or vehicular side of the station will boast cutting-edge dispensers based on a custom version of CNG Source’s Triumph model, including our proprietary technology Tank-Sense allowing for an accurate temperature-compensated fill, providing a superior customer experience with every fill, every vehicle, every time,” says Bousfiha.
The fueling hoses will feature both NGV1 and NGV2 options for each position, and the components will be integrated within the canopy’s structure, allowing for what Bousfiha calls an overall “uncluttered look and feel.” A complete remote monitoring and control system will allow operators and managers to control and supervise the station virtually from anywhere in the world at any time, he adds.
