10 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fueling Station Noise Tests

Noise Expert (acoustical engineers) conducted noise studies for proposed Compressed Natural Gass (CNG) fueling stations in New Mexico, Texas, Connecticut, California, and New York. The operations generally consist of a fast fill dispenser island and several time fill spaces that operated 24 hours each day. The time fill spaces are used for fleet vehicles. The twin compressor can operated 24 hours per day.
