On Tuesday, state and local officials joined partners Sparq Natural Gas and Acorn Petroleum at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Pueblo County, Colo.
Sparq says the company is co-locating the new CNG site at an existing fueling station in the city of Pueblo owned by Acorn Petroleum. Acorn will continue offering gasoline and diesel at the site.
Located at 620 W. 4th St., the station will fuel public vehicles as well as state and local fleets. Sparq says it will install two twin Kraus Global dispensers, providing four fueling positions. The facility will also feature ANGI compression, Oasis nozzles, CP Industries storage and a PSB Dryer.
According to a KOAA5 report, the project is funded by a grant from the Colorado Energy Office. Furthermore, Pueblo County plans to add CNG trucks to its fleet by year-end and take advantage of the new CNG station.
