Buffer CNG Station Design for 100+ Transit Buses

This buffer CNG station was designed to serve a fleet of 100+ transit buses. This project involved the reconstruction and modernization of a station that was heavily damaged by fire.

Marathon worked with the insurance provider and Owner from the outset of the project to determine the most expeditious and safe means by which to return the station to operation and ensure that the station incorporated a high degree of safety and reliability.

Buffer fast fill stations are designed to provide high speed fueling during extended fueling shifts that might last for several hours. The storage buffer itself is intended only to allow the compressors to continue to run loaded as buses are connected and disconnected. Buffer fast fill stations tend to include the largest and most complex equipment of all fill station configurations but provide the ability to dispenser a large amount of fuel over an extended total fill shift.
