FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
American Natural Gas (ANG) Announces Georgetown,
Kentucky’s First Public CNG Station
Saratoga Springs, N.Y., August 20, 2015 – American Natural Gas (ANG), a premier distributor of alternative motor fuels, is building a new compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Georgetown, Kentucky where Bestway Express, a truckload carrier, will be the anchor tenant. The station will be available for use by other carriers and the public and is expected to open in November of this year.
Located at 405 Cherry Blossom Way, this will be the first public CNG station in Georgetown, which is a regional hub for the automotive, agriculture, and transportation industries. Once completed, ANG will make alternative fuel readily available for carriers and shippers along the busy I-75/I-64 corridor. ANG is responsible for building, owning, and operating the Georgetown CNG station.
CNG is the cleanest burning transportation fuel commercially available today. Overall costs to operate heavy-duty trucks on CNG are significantly less than running the same trucks on gasoline or diesel fuel.
“I’m proud to welcome ANG to the Commonwealth,” said Governor Steve Beshear. “This CNG station is a win-win-win for Kentucky – it helps strengthen our economy, improves our environment and supports our energy strategy. It’s an opportunity that makes sense.”
“This is a milestone for ANG. By partnering with Bestway on this station, we are changing the availability of alternative fuels in the area,” said Drew West, CEO of ANG. “This location will expand the network of CNG available for trucking lanes running through Kentucky and I’m excited to see the impact this state-of-the-art station will have.”
“We’re committed to reducing emissions, our carbon footprint, and our dependency on foreign oil,” said Will McCormick, maintenance director for Bestway Express. “Our continued relationship with ANG, and this new station, is another step toward meeting our goals.”
ANG is working closely with Columbia Gas, a utility company and natural gas supplier, to secure high pressure and adequate capacity at the location. This, coupled with the station’s state-of-the-art compressors and equipment, will give heavy-duty tractors the high-flow they need and create an easy, effective fueling experience. The site will feature generous ingress and egress, large capacity buffer storage and consumer-friendly CNG fuel dispensers.
This ANG station will accept major credit cards, Voyager, Wright Express/WEX, and other leading fleet cards. It will also offer a Fleet Fuel Savings Program. For more information, please email [email protected] or call 866-264-6220.
