FONTANA, Calif., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TruStar Energy, one of the leading designers and builders of CNG fueling infrastructure, is pleased to announce the expansion of existing compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations for Cincinnati-based Rumpke Consolidated Companies and Lewiston, New York-based Modern Disposal Services.
TruStar Energy originally built stations for both refuse haulers, but fleet expansion required that capacity upgrades be installed to facilitate their growing CNG fleets.
"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 horsepower compressor and fueling posts to fuel their addition of 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."
TruStar Energy began building private "behind the fence" fueling stations in 2008, and has since expanded their product offerings to include public / private station builds along with fuel supply contracts. In addition, TruStar Energy-owned stations can be built for those customers that are not interested in station ownership, but want access to low-cost CNG fuel.
Comora said TruStar Energy has the capability of building 40 CNG stations per year and expects to double that capacity over the next few years.
TruStar Energy LLC is the preferred partner for commercial fleets looking to transition their fuel supply from oil to natural gas. TruStar Energy provides a suite of solutions making the transition as simple and easy as possible for the customer. With station builds throughout the US and Canada, TruStar Energy is a recognized leader in providing CNG infrastructure and CNG fueling solutions.
