New compressed natural gas filling station in Fontana

September 7, 2017. American Natural Gas (ANG), a premier distributor of alternative motor fuels, and a portfolio company within HC2 Holdings, Inc., announced its public compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Fontana, California, is now open for business.

   The station will meet the demand for high-performing, easily-accessible CNG fueling facilities in the trucking industry hub. Located at 14512 Aliso Drive, at the intersection of Interstate 15 and Interstate 10, it’s in a high-transit area and near numerous transportation, distribution, and manufacturing centers.

   “Fontana and the fleets that operate here have set a precedent for CNG usage and ANG is excited by the opportunity to help fuel their future,” said Drew West, Chief Executive Officer of ANG. “We’re proud of this station because it demonstrates how, with an exclusive focus on CNG, we’re able to listen to drivers, problem-solve with partners, and source stronger equipment. Ultimately, we create the 100 percent reliable experience leading CNG fleets deserve.”

   “Our all-star maintenance and operations team is looking forward to serving an area where fleets understand the value CNG specialists can bring,” said Brent Tesla, Vice President of Operations at ANG. “I look forward to building personal relationships with our partners in Fontana and doing whatever it takes to keep their fuel flowing and fleets on the road.”

   Primed for uptime, the Fontana station has three 300 HP Ariel JGQ/2 compressors packaged by ANGI Energy Systems with two points of temperature compensation and an ANGI dryer. The station features three ANGI CNG dispensers equipped with NGV1 nozzles for light and medium-duty use and NGV2 nozzles to accommodate heavy-duty and transit vehicles. The fast-fuel station is optimized for high-capacity, large volume users.
