Public CNG station opens in Rochester, NY

American Natural Gas (ANG) announced it opened a public compressed natural gas station in Gates, NY, a suburb of Rochester. The facility is located at the intersection of I-390 (Exit 19) and Chili Avenue and is close to I-590, I-490, regional distribution centers, and the Greater Rochester International Airport.

“We continue to hear and respond to the increasing need for alternative fuel infrastructure,” said Drew West, CEO of ANG. “The more stations we have, the more realistic it is for businesses to convert and fulfill their environmental impact aspirations. We are excited to expand our New York CNG network into Rochester and look forward to building relationships with regional long-haul, distribution and public transportation fleet owners.”

“Natural gas will transform the truck transportation industry because it’s a cleaner and cheaper fuel than gasoline or diesel,” said Mark Assini, Gates town supervisor. “Gates is grateful to ANG for building one of the very first commercial natural gas fueling stations in the region and our town is proud to have a role in this cutting edge transformation.”

“The opening of the ANG station in Rochester is a significant event,” said David Keefe, Genesee region clean cities coordinator. “As the first public CNG station in our region, it will accelerate the development of CNG fleets in our area. We have been waiting for this for a long time and we are pleased that ANG has brought this project to our community.”

According to the company, the station was built around cold weather-reliable systems, including 400 HP Cobey Energy compressors with two points of temperature compensation and a Xebec dryer. The three-lane station features Bennett Crind dispensers equipped with NGV1 nozzles for light- and medium-duty use and NGV2 nozzles to accommodate heavy-duty and transit vehicles.
