On Wednesday morning, Clean Energy Fuels Corp., All Waste/USA Hauling and Recycling/All American Waste opened a new public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station on Maxim Road in Hartford, Conn.
The fast-fill facility features two dual-hose dispensers, 300 hp compressors capable of providing 1,300 SCMF of compression, and a three-bank CNG storage system.
All Waste/USA Hauling and Recycling/All American Waste are the anchor fleets for the station, and each company is in the early stages of converting its heavy-duty trucks to CNG. Hartford Yellow Cab, Metro Taxi, the Greater Hartford Transit District and AT&T also operate natural gas vehicles in the area and will refuel at the facility.
In addition to Clean Energy president and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair, the grand-opening event welcomed dignitaries such as Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra and U.S. Rep. John B. Larson. On hand were CNG-powered refuse and recycling trucks, an AT&T van, a Yellow Cab taxi, and a Honda Civic NGV.
