New CNG Station Opens in the Insurance Capital of the World

New CNG Station Opens in the Insurance Capital of the World 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.
