Louisville, Ky. – Kentuckiana Cleanfuel LLC, a Louisville-based company, announced today the groundbreaking of their compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station at 2490 Commerce Boulevard in Sharonville, Ohio. This station will be powered by four 250 horsepower ANGI NG300E packages featuring Ohio-made Ariel JGQ/2 natural gas compressors, three dual-pump nozzles and a maximum fast-fill flow of up to fifteen gallons per minute.
The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, October 6th at 11:30 AM with a soft-opening tentatively planned for November 18th, 2016.
This 24/7 public access station, designed and built by TruStar Energy of Rancho Cucamonga, California, will be located in a transportation-based industrial park with easy access to the I-75 and I-71 corridors and will also operate as a depot for M&M Cartage Class 8 Freightliner trucks. Don Hayden, President of M&M Cartage is pleased with the expansion of the Kentuckiana Cleanfuel brand into Ohio. “The location of the station will help M&M Cartage to further serve our customer base,” said Mr. Hayden, “and we’re proud that our commitment to CNG provides valuable economic and environmental benefits to their shareholders.”
“We are taking a very conservative approach to expansion,” said Alan Steiden, President of Kentuckiana Cleanfuel. “We will have a total of four stations completed and fueling within the next year-and-a-half, and we always make sure to have enough volume locked in for success before we ever break ground. Now is the time for Cincinnati fleets to join the CNG revolution.”
Patti Murdock, President of Clean Logistics Consulting and former North American Transportation Strategy Manager for Procter and Gamble agreed, “This terrific investment will benefit those supporting CNG vehicles now and provides the opportunity for other fleets to begin using this game-changing fuel. The location chosen is a key link for Cincinnati to join the national network of high-caliber CNG stations fueling trucks of all sizes.”
Daniel Ricciardi, President of the Tri-State Transportation and Logistics Council is also pleased that the new station will soon be in operation. “The Tri-State Logistics Council and its members are committed to promoting clean and efficient fuel alternatives and welcome the Kentuckiana Cleanfuel CNG fueling station to the region,” said Mr. Ricciardi.
Sam Spofforth, Executive Director of Clean Fuels Ohio echoed these sentiments. “Natural gas is a great alternative transportation fuel for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and this growth in CNG stations is really leading the way to a cleaner future for America.”
