GUYMON -- TruStar Energy won the contract to build a large, fast-fill compressed natural gas fueling station for High Plains Bioenergy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Seaboard Foods - a division of Seaboard Corporation.
The two-compressor CNG fueling station will be configured to provide fuel for a wide array of Seaboard heavy-duty vehicles that move products both locally and in an over-the-road application.
"High Plains Bioenergy is a renewable energy company focused on producing as well as using high-quality alternative fuels for the Seaboard Foods integrated food system," said Seaboard Foods President and CEO, Terry Holton. "High Plains Bioenergy operates a plant that has been in continuous production since 2008 and produced more than 34 million gallons of biodiesel in 2013."
This is TruStar Energy's first station in Oklahoma - and their first with a company already contributing to the development of renewable energy.
"Building this station for High Plains Bioenergy and Seaboard Foods is very exciting to us at TruStar Energy because we're working with another company with a strong commitment to renewable energy," said TruStar Energy Vice President, Scott Edelbach, adding, "they are using their CNG-powered fleet to transport pork products and biodiesel across the country."
