Omnitek’s natural gas genset to power CNG station in Mexico
Omnitek Engineering said it has received an order for a 12-cylinder, 600 kilowatt natural gas power generator to operate the NatGas Bernardo Quintana CNG fueling station in Queretaro, Mexico.
The capacity of the station will be enough to serve an anticipated 200 CNG buses and 1,000 taxi vehicles per day, the company said in a statement.
Cost benefits and the assurance of an uninterrupted source of electric power for fueling vehicles were cited as two primary factors in the decision to install Omnitek’s natural gas generator. Terms were not disclosed.
Josué Hernandez, the chief executive officer of NatGas, said this is the company’s largest station to date, with room for expansion. He also revealed the company will open more stations during the year including the first public CNG station in the city of San Louis Potosi in mid-2015.
