American Natural Gas cuts ribbon on new Middle Tennessee fueling station

August 1, 2017. American Natural Gas (ANG), a premier distributor of alternative motor fuels, and a portfolio company within HC2 Holdings, Inc., held a ribbon cutting ceremony, in collaboration with Tennessee Clean Fuels, to unveil its new public compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Fayetteville, Tennessee. The facility, located at 1560 Winchester Hwy., will be open to the public and PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division will be a major customer with its fleet of CNG tractor-trailers.

   “At ANG, we’re committed to building better stations, serving our customers, and introducing the power of CNG to new communities across the country,” said Drew West, chief executive officer of ANG. “It’s an honor to be in Fayetteville today to celebrate our new station, highlight the achievements of the region’s energy pioneers, and honor Frito-Lay for its distinguished leadership and commitment to moving the alternative fuel industry forward.”

   “We are thrilled that Frito-Lay selected Fayetteville and Tennessee as a site to continue expanding their CNG fleet and are excited to get to know ANG as they help make it happen,” said Jonathan Overly, director of Tennessee Clean Fuels. “CNG has so many benefits: it reduces greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions, supports growing more green American jobs, and reduces oil imports – don’t forget that we are still roughly 20% dependent on countries like OPEC member-states for overseas oil. Frito-Lay and ANG are helping us build a stronger and more independent and resilient USA.”

   “We could not be more excited about the completion of this ANG CNG fueling station, which is located just a few miles from Frito-Lay’s Fayetteville manufacturing facility,” said Ken Marko, senior national fleet sustainability manager, PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division. “Having a national infrastructure for alternative fuel is critical to the expansion of Frito-Lay’s CNG fleet and for other companies currently using or considering this technology.”

   Open 24-hours, the fast-fill Fayetteville station has three consumer-friendly dispensers equipped with NGV2 nozzles to optimize the experience for heavy-duty, high-capacity users, as well as NGV1 nozzles for light and medium-duty use. The station accepts all major credit cards, including Voyager, Wright Express/Wex, and other leading fleet cards. ANG will oversee operations with state-of-the-art monitoring platforms and an expert on-call maintenance team.
