Utah Transit Authority Depot District Fuel Facility

Salt Lake City, Utah

UTA is in the process of developing a new “state-of-the-art” Central Bus
Operations and Maintenance Facility. The first phase of development is a new
indoor fuel and fare collection facility. It features two Class 1,  Division 2 (spark
proof) indoor fueling bays, two detail clean bays, a brake inspection pit and
support areas for the building service staff. The building is designed for the
future addition of a third bay to accommodate fueling UTA’s eventual fleet of
250 buses, but is currently capable of fueling a 150 bus fleet. The facility will
also include diesel fueling, but is currently only dispensing CNG from four large
compressors built and operated by Trillium CNG.

Project Highlights
• Facility includes two bays for interior day-clean and a drive-through brake
inspection pit.
• All fueling is done inside a heated environment.
• Building has deflagration panels for any possible explosion from CNG
fumes.
• Facility is fueled with three 250 HP compressors at 960 CFM each.
