SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Blu. joined forces with Maverik — Adventure's First Stop — to open a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station at one of Maverik's state-of-the-art locations. It is the first Blu. station to be co-located at a Maverik Race Trailer Site (commercial and large-vehicle fueling stations). The collaboration between the two companies will help bring the benefits of liquefied natural gas to the heart of industry in Salt Lake City.
"In areas of industrial activity," said John Hillam, Vice President of the Power Move Division at Maverik Inc., "there is no strong service provider to meet the needs or fuel interests for blue-collar customers. We built this for them."
The station, located at 1445 S. Gustin Road in Salt Lake City, features a Maverik store stocked with fresh-made BonFire™ food, snacks and drinks, and has gasoline, diesel, DEF and LNG refueling lanes. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and accepts all major fleet cards. The station allows customers access to the environmental and cost-saving benefits of natural-gas-fueled vehicles.
"The nation is undergoing a revolutionary change," said Richard Peterson, Executive Vice President for Sales and Marketing at Blu. "Natural gas is abundant, clean and American. We like it for those reasons, and truck companies like it because it provides immediate savings to their bottom line."
Blu. helps companies identify their best LNG-fueling options. Using demo trucks, conversion kits, on-site mobile-refuel units and other options, Blu. allows companies and operators of all sizes to experience the benefits of LNG within their own fleets.
