Stirk CNG announced that it has partnered with Frontier Cooperative to open an NGV station by fall 2014 in Columbus, Nebraska, which will be located at Sapp Bros Travel Center on East 6th Avenue and will facilitate both large truck access and automobiles. Initial fleets using the station will be Class 8 vehicles in the grain and feed transportation industry. Natural gas utility Black Hills Energy will provide fuel service to the new facility.
“We are very excited about this opportunity,” said Jeff Ingalls, Energy Department Manager with Frontier Cooperative. This full-service cooperative, operating 22 sites located primarily in east central Nebraska, seeks to invest in facilities, resources, equipment, and technology to ensure that its products and services meet the ever-changing demands of the producer and consumer.
Moreover, Mike Hoelscher, managing member from Stirk CNG, stated: “Our strategy is to continue to build out the compressed natural gas infrastructure, with a focus on large truck access in major transportation corridors. The Columbus, Nebraska location is an important step in completing this goal.”
Stirk CNG is the trade name for stations operated by J & J Compression, LLC, headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska and was formed to build an infrastructure of natural gas filling stations through strategic partnerships and alliances.
