Wendel is working with the Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) on the construction of an on-site Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station. This project has come out of GRTC’s commitment to convert to a more environmentally friendly fuel source, with the added bonus of reduced operational costs.
In January 2010 GRTC completed construction of its new Operations and Maintenance Facility in Richmond, VA, and is now incorporating an on-site CNG substation into the facility. Over time GRTC will convert its entire fleet from diesel fuel to CNG. GRTC currently has 166 buses and 75 special transit vans that will be converted.
Wendel is designing and constructing the CNG fueling station, performing all activities and tasks necessary to deliver the turn-key station, including all site infrastructure and station construction, testing, commissioning and start-up.
The new CNG fueling station will have fueling capabilities equivalent to that of diesel, accommodate varying temperatures and pressure conditions, and contain all equipment necessary to make the station operable. It is expected to be completed January 2014.
