Concessionaire chosen for new natural gas fueling station

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — The Chambersburg Borough Council this week selected “O” Ring CNG Fuel Systems as its preferred concessionaire for a new natural gas fueling station planned on a leased site at Exit 14 of Interstate 81.

“We do not yet have a final concessionaire agreement and sublease but hope to have one for council to consider soon,” Borough Manager Jeffrey Stonehill said in an email.

Costs for construction of the facility have not yet been determined, Stonehill said.

The borough plans to have the fueling station under construction this summer. The facility would serve private and commercial fleets as well as any converted municipal vehicles.

“As one of only two municipal gas systems in Pennsylvania, the borough believed compressed natural gas was a great idea to research. ... Additionally, with the borough having three I-81 exits, we are ideally situated to provide convenient compressed natural gas fueling,” John Leary, gas superintendent for

Chambersburg, said in an interview last fall.

“O” Ring CNG Fuel Systems is based in Coolspring, Pa.
