Questar Fueling Co. says it will be building a compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in San Antonio to serve anchor fleet Central Freight Lines, as well as other fleets and natural gas vehicle operators.
The public-access portion of the facility will offer six lanes of high-speed CNG fueling, while Central Freight Lines will mostly refuel via a private time-fill component that is designed to accommodate up to 60 Class 8 trucks. The heavy-duty hauler anticipates that it will consume 1 million DGE of CNG annually.
‘Questar Fueling is helping to make our transition to natural gas much easier,’ says Don Orr, president and CEO of Central Freight Lines. ‘Our commercial-private partnership with the company has resulted in convenient and reliable CNG fueling for our trucks.’
Questar Fueling, Central Freight Lines and Swift Transportation recently unveiled another Texas-sized CNG station: a facility in Houston that features 120 time-fill posts and five fast-fill dispensers. Central Freight Lines and Swift Transportation will collectively use about 5 million DGE of CNG annually from the Houston station alone.
The new San Antonio facility is expected to be operational this summer, according to Questar Fueling.
