TruStar Energy has broken ground on its first company-branded public fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) station, which is located in Orlando, Fla.
‘We are very excited about developing our own branded public fueling stations,’ says TruStar Energy President Adam Comora. ‘Since 2009, TruStar Energy has been a leader in developing public and private fueling infrastructure. We've taken that knowledge and identified key areas around the country where our future TruStar Energy-branded stations will be able to provide needed fuel for both private and commercial CNG vehicles.’Â
Located on Exchange Drive, the station will be constructed to serve Class 8 vehicles and feature four traffic lanes and two fueling islands. Scott Edelbach, TruStar Energy's vice president of sales, notes that the Orlando location has been on the company's radar for quite some time.
‘TruStar Energy has a strong presence in Florida, and many fleet owners there have told us they need additional fueling options in the Orlando area,” says Edelbach. “We've done extensive research and have found a location that is very close to several major fleets as well as a heavy traffic corridor – making it a very attractive location to serve our customers. This station will be able to serve several hundred CNG vehicles per day.’
The Orlando facility is slated for completion this fall, and TruStar says it plans to build additional branded public stations in strategic locations throughout the U.S. in 2015.
