The Lambert-St. Louis International Airport will likely soon host a new compressed natural gas (CNG) station, following approval of a plan this week by the St. Louis Airport Commission.
An article in the St. Louis Business Journal says Laclede Venture Corp. will partner with Siemens to design and build the CNG fueling infrastructure, and Laclede will own and operate the station. The proposed location is at the airport's Super Park Lot C on Highway 70.
Plans would call for Laclede to sign a 15-year lease agreement and pay an annual lease rate of approximately $18,000, as well as invest at least $2.5 million in the build-out of the station and the associated public-access routes leading to it.
Final approval of the plans rests with the city of St. Louis and the St. Louis Board of Aldermen.
