Denver NGV Facility Tour: Central Platte Campus
A tour of the City and County of Denver’s Central Platte Campus – Compressed Natural Gas fueling station and repair facility. In 2014, the City and County of Denver opened a CNG station with 68 slow-fill and 2 fast-fill fueling posts. Currently, the facility supports the fueling of 40 heavy duty CNG solid waste trucks, and it delivers over 22,000 DGE per month. In addition to the fueling station, Denver operates a 15 bay certified CNG repair facility.
Tour of Denver International Airport
Denver International Airport (DIA) is one of the busiest hubs in the United States, showcasing more than 25 years of NGV industry leadership.
This will be a rewarding first-hand experience discovering some of the airport’s more than 200 NGVs, which accounts for 20 percent of their fleet. These vehicles include buses, shuttles, sedans, light duty trucks and vans, sweepers, and scrubbers. Spurred by the airport’s success, many other companies operating in or around the airport have also switched to natural gas. Today, there are over 1,000 CNG vehicles supporting DIA operations, including the airlines, non-DIA shuttles, rental car companies, and other suppliers.
To satisfy this load, six CNG stations are available on property—five “behind the fence” and one open to the public, which services at least 45 local companies and dispenses over 600,000 GGEs annually. DIA exemplifies the best in organizations that have vigorously promoted the use of natural gas vehicles for environmentally positive impacts, economic benefits, and the use of an abundant domestic transportation fuel.
