The project’s scope entailed building a fast-fill CNG refueling station at an existing LNG refueling station and integrating the two systems.
The project is part of a larger network of stations planned for northern and central California, supporting fleets of heavy-duty trucks, buses, and vans switching to CNG to minimize emissions and maximize carbon credits.
The initial design called for high-pressure tubing between the equipment compound and the dispensers to be installed overhead on the canopy. However, due to delays related to the permitting and installation of the canopy, FASTECH proposed running these lines underground, saving the client time and money.
An electrical utility interrupter is a high voltage switch between incoming power and the site transformer. The design location of the interrupter was on a steep slope leading into a drainage swale. FASTECH proposed relocating the interrupter to a flat area to avoid the cost and schedule impacts of constructing the retaining wall that would have been necessary to install the interrupter on the slope.
FASTECH coordinated between Clean Energy and the utility company to get the change approved.
