Spire Natural Gas Fuelling Solutions (Spire) is providing a new fuelling option for truck drivers. The current debut of its first fuelling station in South Carolina, is helping Spire to provide upstate South Carolina to run on cleaner and affordable compressed natural gas (CNG).

Local officials from Greer joined Spire executives to celebrate the fuelling station's official opening, "We are excited that the trucking community in Greenville has started the shift to compressed natural gas," said Peter Stansky, President and Chief Operating Officer for Spire. "We designed this station with the heavy duty truck driver in mind, from easy access to the station and a wide turning radius to fast fuelling pumps that get drivers back on the road quickly and safely."

The station is located at a site that is ideal for drivers because of its proximity to Interstate 85 and a full service convenience store.

"We are excited for Spire to join the Greer community," said Mark Owens, President of the Greer Chamber of Commerce. "Greer is a trailblazer in regard to compressed natural gas, and we are proud that Spire will allow our businesses and residents to have another choice when it comes to fuel. This is another new technology to utilise which makes Greer a great place to be in business."

The Spire CNG station uses top of the line equipment from leading manufacturers to provide a reliable, efficient and safe fuelling experience. Customers are able to fill their vehicles quickly and safely thanks to the high quality control technology and compression equipment. The station will be monitored around the clock and is well lit for customers who fuel at night. Spire designed the station for large fleet vehicles like class 8 trucks but can also fuel passenger vehicles such as a Honda Civic natural gas.
