BEAVERS: Since a CNG fueling station is such a large
investment, it usually comes down to a few groups that
are putting in multiple stations. In our area, for example,
Williams Oil owns a chain
of convenience stores called
Dandy Mini Marts. We work
with them quite a bit. We’ve also
begun a relationship with River
Valley Transit, the public transit
facility down in Williamsport,
Pa. And the projects with the
New York DOT continue to be
important to us.
JOURNAL: In addition to design and construction,
do you handle service work on the CNG stations?
BEAVERS: Definitely. We try to be an A-to-Z solution.
Jobs often start with a feasibility study, in which we help a
customer analyze their history of fuel usage and fuel costs to
see if it makes sense to convert some or all of their vehicles
to CNG. Assuming the answer is yes, at that point we’ll
develop options for different
types and sizes of stations
that could service their fleet.
Or, if it makes more sense
economically, we might put
them in contact with another
local fleet and work together
to build one station that will
serve both groups. We’ll then
do the design, engineering
and construction. And once a facility is up and running, we
follow through with the service and the maintenance—a very
important part of the whole picture.
