COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IGS CNG Services and Rumpke Waste & Recycling partnered to build a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station at Rumpke's Columbus location on Fields Avenue.
The station began operating on August 7, 2017. Rumpke enlisted IGS CNG Services to build, own and operate a private time-fill station for its fleet of 48 CNG waste and recycling trucks.
"Our trucks play a critical role in providing essential services for more than 300,000 residences and businesses in Central Ohio," said Andrew Rumpke, area president at Rumpke. "As Rumpke continues adding CNG trucks to our fleet, we recognize the need for an on-site CNG station."
IGS CNG Services continues to invest in its mission to drive energy independence. The firm recently announced plans to expand its network of CNG fueling stations, with a total of three locations slated for Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
"Compressed natural gas remains a viable, domestic, cost-effective fueling option for fleets. Our turn-key approach to ownership, operation and maintenance of both public and private stations continues to be a suitable solution for fleets of all sizes across a number of industries," said Mike Gatt, vice president of IGS CNG Services.
IGS CNG Services is also planning to build a CNG station with support from National Fuel near Erie, Pennsylvania. It will be located at the SR-832 exit off I-90 on Sterrettania Road and will accommodate all fleets, including class 8 semi-trucks. This project was financed in part by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Financing Authority.
Additionally, the CNG services provider purchased an existing public station in Monona, Wisconsin. from NGV Fueling Services, LLC. IGS CNG Services has enhancements planned for the Monona station beginning this fall, including installation of an additional dispenser under the diesel canopy.
The addition of these three locations will bring IGS CNG Services' network to 15 stations located throughout Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and represents a sustained commitment to building out CNG infrastructure, which spans multiple industries and regions throughout the country.
