A new CNG Fueling station has opened in Rochester, NY that features Cobey Energy equipment including a CE-C500 CNG Compressor
and CE-PFP1.0 Priority Fill Panel
. This project presented a unique challenge in that the station would not be staffed but instead remotely monitored. The Cobey Energy CNG Team came up with a design solution to fit the customer’s needs and the station is now fully operational and open to the public.
The article below talks about the growth of the need and want for CNG fueling stations in the Rochester, NY area.
“It is only the second public station of its kind in the Greater Rochester region, and the first with the capacity to service tractor trailers and straight trucks, officials said.
Those heavy-duty haulers are where the growth has been when it comes to the number of natural gas vehicles on the road. Trash haulers including the city of Rochester, Monroe County, Waste Management, Suburban Disposal and Casella Waste Systems all have natural gas trucks. Tops Markets recently replaced its 55-truck fleet with natural gas trucks, and Wegmans confirmed last week its plan to add 15 natural gas trucks to its Rochester fleet — based just down the road from the new station.
"We talk about this chicken and egg syndrome," said Keefe, coordinator of Genesee Region Clean Communities, a nonprofit affiliate of the U.S. Department of Energy, referring to which comes first — the alternative fuel stations or vehicles. "I think this natural gas fueling station will create an opportunity for expansion." Source: Democrat & Chronicle
