Cobey Energy says it recently upgraded an existing – and increasingly busy – compressed natural gas (CNG) station for an undisclosed customer in New Concord, Ohio.
According to Cobey Energy, the station already had three 30 hp compressors and 85,700 cubic feet of storage. However, the customer's site has been well utilized by local fleet operators and is experiencing additional demand that the current compressors could no longer meet. Cobey Energy notes that the three existing compressors were running as much as 17 hours per day and, at times, were able to only partially fill vehicles due to the high traffic flow through the station.
The company was approached to supply a fourth compressor, a Cobey Energy model number CE-C250 capable of 200 hp of gas compression. Cobey says it completed the installation in January, and the total flow rate of the station is now tripled and assures current and future customers' fueling demands are met.
In addition, Cobey says the client purchased a new CE-PFP.75 fast-fill priority fill panel to direct the gas from the new compressor to the cascade storage array or directly to the fast-fill dispenser as required.
