The Jacksonville, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal said in a news release it has ordered 27 CNG trucks and will break ground on a fueling station in Ball Ground, Ga., to serve the metropolitan Atlanta area.
The company’s first CNG fleet will serve in particular Gwinnett County and the city of Roswell.
The fueling station north of Atlanta will be designed to fuel 67 trucks, allowing for the company’s expected growth of the fleet. The station will be capable of producing 445 diesel gallon equivalents per hour. The facility will be capable of fueling 95 trucks in 10 hours.
The company said it spent close to $2 million on the fueling facility.
Advanced Disposal is exploring additional CNG fleets in 2012 and 2013, and fueling stations at its hauling operations in Augusta, Ga., and Mississippi. “This is the first of many orders, as we are committed to growing our CNG fleet,” said Charlie Gray, regional vice president for the company.
