Chicago Infrastructure Trust has launched a tender process to develop a compelling network of CNG stations that enable vehicle operators to fuel in the city of Chicago.
In 2014, the Trust received an unsolicited proposal to build new CNG fueling stations in the city. The current proposal for the project involves:
- At least 6 new CNG fueling stations that are publicly accessible.
- An upgrade to one or more existing City-owned stations, where appropriate.
- CNG fueling stations that are open 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
- CNG fueling station maintenance that will address malfunctions within a 4-hour period of notification, unless such modification results in a loss or degradation of fueling capacity or poses a safety hazard, in which case the response is immediate.
Interested parties must confirm their interest in submitting a proposal by signing up for a slot to speak with the Trust on Thursday, April 23rd from 9 a.m-5 p.m. In concert with the Open Bidding Process, the Trust will host an Industry Forum to publicly discuss its CNG program on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.
Proposals are due on or before Friday, May 29, 2015.
