Two fleets are expanding their compressed natural gas fueling capacity thanks to TruStar Energy, a designer and builder of CNG fueling infrastructure.
TruStar, which initially built stations for both Cincinnati-based Rumpke Consolidated Companies and Lewiston, NY-based Modern Disposal Services, will add additional capacity at each location to meet growing CNG needs, it said.
“It’s proof positive that CNG continues to gain in acceptance with fleets – and the value proposition is real,” said TruStar Energy vice president Scott Edelbach. “Both Rumpke and Modern were early adopters of CNG – and as savvy fleet owners – they understand the dynamics of the fuel and the savings associated with domestic natural gas.”
Rumpke is adding fueling posts for an additional 28 trucks and Modern Disposal is adding a third 250 hp. compressor and fueling posts to fuel an additional 20 new garbage trucks. At full build out, Modern will have 90 CNG garbage trucks while Rumpke will have several hundred.
“Converting from diesel to CNG is a game changer for enhancing the profitability of transportation operations,” said TruStar Energy President Adam Comora. “Significant fuel savings create added value for fleet operators and their partners. Natural gas is better for the environment, better for domestic energy independence and better for the bottom line – truly a win-win-win solution.”
