    City of Dublin employees, alternative fuel industry representatives and local residents gathered on Thursday, June 28, 2012 to celebrate the official opening of Dublin’s first publicly accessible compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station.

    With the help of a $1.5 million grant from the US Department of Energy through Clean Fuels Ohio, Dublin constructed a CNG fueling station and fleet management center – a move expected to save this central Ohio city more than $30,000 a year in fuel costs.

    Located at 6351 Shier Rings Road, the $4.2 million fast-fill fueling station allows natural gas vehicles to fuel up in approximately the same amount of time as diesel vehicles. At the heart of the station are two Ariel JGQ, two-throw compressors, compressing the natural gas to CNG.

    The station is partnering with IGS Energy to provide the natural gas. IGS will manage the 24-hour station access, which will require an approved account and key card before use.

    Along with the fueling and maintenance centers, Dublin also purchased 44 dedicated CNG vehicles. Over the next several years, as more vehicles are replaced, Dublin plans to add additional CNG vehicles to the fleet.

    Dublin’s Division of Fleet Management is an ASE Blue Seal shop, with vehicle technicians certified in CNG conversion kit installation and CNG vehicle maintenance and repair. In gaining these certifications, Dublin can expect to save even more money through maintenance and repair costs.
