Seven months after commencing construction, Direct Energy Business, leading energy provider in North America, and Xpress Natural Gas (XNG), operator of North America’s largest fleet of high capacity composite CNG trailers, announced that the compressed natural gas production facility and distribution terminal in Manheim, New York is now fully operational. It is the only such facility in the state, and is able to serve business and municipal customers hundreds of miles away.
The state-of-the-art Manheim CNG Center can deliver up to 45 trucks per day of natural gas with an annual peak capacity of 5.7 billion cubic feet (BCF), and features redundant design to ensure reliable service. The Center will provide CNG to remote businesses and municipalities that cannot sufficiently be served from existing pipeline infrastructure. With this facility, commercial and industrial customers throughout the tri-state area will have access to an affordable and clean fuel source for heating and manufacturing processes.
“With its advantaged pricing, emissions benefits and reduced maintenance costs, CNG is the clear choice for businesses looking to lower operational costs and add long-term value,” said John Schultz, president of Direct Energy Business. “Through our relationships with partners such as XNG, we’re focused on providing our customers turnkey CNG solutions to meet their needs. Today’s station opening reflects that commitment.”
“XNG and Direct Energy Business are making it easier than ever for New York companies to take advantage of cheaper natural gas prices by converting to CNG,” said John Nahill, CEO of XNG. “By saving on fuel costs and securing long-term emissions reductions, companies that make the switch will be better positioned to compete more effectively.”
