    ANGI dispenser sold at auction for $765 Aug 11 2017. A comparable Kraus sells new, I believe, for upwards of $60,000. This is less than the cost of one of the two hoses attached to it:

    Centre Area Transportation Authority in PA also auctioned one of two 170HP Ariel compressors (75 SCFM) from its CNG station - which fuels buses and fleet vehicles - in May 2017 for $9365. Their facility is being upgraded. Ariel is among the best compressors cited by a CNG mechanic I know (the others are IMW used by Clean Energy; Bauer; Sulzberger.) Ariel compressors have been offered used for $45,000 by equipment resellers recently:

    As for storage tanks, the three tubes included with the Garner NC CNG station noted in an earlier post (this thread) were included in the winning bid of almost $18,000:

    Experience has been that an engineering firm will charge about $12,000 for the drawings and acquiring necessary permits. There is site excavation (trenching, grading), mechanical (piping), transportation and rigging (crane to unload trucks), electrical (install transformer for more power), card reader electronic setup, and the CNG technician(s) to get everything hooked up properly. Maybe 3-6 months for a total of $30,000 - $50,000.

    Land is a function of the locale where the station is being put in. But, all told, making use of used equipment can allow a CNG station to go in for the price of the land (or lease) plus another $75,000. (It is interesting that the links above are all for auctions that ended, but the information is still posted!) There are experience people (technicians, auction watchers, station owners) here on cngchat that are great sources for carrying out such a project.

      125HP 3-stage Sulzer (1997) CNG fuel station with 2 ASME tubes; dryer; dispenser - auction ends Aug 25 2017 noon PDT in Charlottesville NC.

      Will need service to operate. The controller brand is Siemens in a console made by Watt Commander Controls. Uses a Cummins natural gas engine to drive the compressor. Sulzer is a reliable brand according to repair technicians. The station was providing 3600 psi fills and the two 23 foot ASME tubes have a MAWP 5500 psi rating.

      Contact Matt Damasco in NC (434) 970-3865 with questions :

        The only problem with Sulzer in America is that you have to go through Greenfield to get parts. Greenfield does not believe in customer service.The other thing I find helpful with a Sulzer it to slow it down to just about 1000 rpm and use a power band. Slowing it down smiths it out and increases the valve life, the power band reduces the belt squeal. In Ca. it has become almost imposable to use a internal combustion drive because of emission standards.

          Charlotte NC CNG station uses a 125HP natural gas engine and three stage Sulzer compressor which should supply over 150 SCFM (75gge/hr). Compressor likely requires 150 psi inlet pressure.
