Design and Manage Development of a CNG-Transit Fueling Facility

Birmingham, AL
April 2004 to May 2006

Develop the design of a two-lane transit-type CNG fueling facility designed to fuel two buses simultaneously with 60 diesel-equivalent gallons of CNG within an 8.5-minute fill-cycle time. Facility will also include an 'outside-the-fence' two-sided public-access fueling island. Includes development of sizing and capacity requirements (fueling demand vs. facility capacity) for a turnkey fueling facility, preparation of '100% design' construction drawings and CSI-type specifications, for all piping-process-mechanical systems, review and approve contractor's submittals for equipment materials and methods, as well as oversee construction and startup of fueling facility for conformance to bid specifications. Also facilitate facility-use training, vehicle-fueling training and specifications for a facility preventative-maintenance contract. Fuel Solutions is working as a subconsultant to a general engineering-design firm for this project. Project is complete.
