Gain opens CNG station for Roehl Transport

Oct. 14, 2014

Gain Clean Fuel has opened a compressed natural gas fueling station for Roehl Transport in Gary, IN. The station, located along Interstate 80/90, will offer fast-fill capabilities.

“We’ve made significant investments in our equipment, facilities and training programs to increase our energy efficiencies and decrease our fuel consumption. We see U.S. Oil as a strategic partner in helping us reach our company goals for energy use and conservation,” said Greg Koepel, Roehl vice president.

It’s projected the station, which is available to other carriers as well, will replace the equivalent of 450,000 gals. of diesel fuel in the next year and more than 5 million gals. in the next five years. That equates to a greenhouse gas emissions reduction of more than 1,000 tons in the next year and more than 10,000 tons over five years, Gain said.

“This partnership continues our build-out of a nation-wide network of CNG stations,” said Bill Renz, general manager for the Gain Clean Fuel Division of U.S. Oil. “The Gary station not only gives Roehl Transport a CNG fueling location along a key truck route, it also delivers an economic, clean-fuel alternative for their fleet, consistent with the company’s environmentally-responsible green policy.”
