The CNG facility, which is located at LCSWMA's transfer station in Lancaster, features 16 time-fill CNG posts for the organization's natural gas vehicles, as well as four fast-fill CNG pumps for waste haulers and other fleets.
LCSWMA's own NGV fleet currently consists of 14 Peterbilt transfer trucks that use the Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine. LCSWMA uses these NGVs to transfer waste from Lancaster to its waste-to-energy facilities in Bainbridge and Harrisburg, as well as to its landfill in Conestoga.
The organization has already formed agreements with Good's Disposal, the City of Lancaster and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to use the CNG fast-fill station. UGI and several other commercial fleets are also considering use of the facility, which offers CNG for $2.23/GGE.
Clean Energy will be providing operations and maintenance services for the new CNG station under a multi-year contract.
