Their Amp Trillium JV Targets a Network of CNG Stations
Trillium CNG and Amp Americas have established Amp Trillium to build a network of compressed natural gas fueling stations across the U.S.
The Amp Trillium joint venture will start with stations along the I-65 and I-75 trucking corridors and major routes in Texas, with ground to be broken for the first installation by fall 2012.
“The stations will be open to the public,” the partners say, “though the primary customers will likely be heavy-duty and long-haul trucking fleets.
Amp Trillium facilities will feature fast-fill dispensers and redundant equipment providing increased fill speed and reduced downtime while delivering exceptional reliability backed by our 24/7 on call service-team. Customers will be able to use fleet cards and major credit cards, and will be offered pricing incentives.
Amp Trillium plans to use renewable CNG (biomethane) “whenever possible.”
Both partners bring experience and expertise. Trillium CNG, now a unit of Integrys Energy (NYSE:TEG), is well known in the alt fuels industry and the CNG marketplace for facility design, construction, operations and maintenance capabilities.
Amp Americas owns two CNG fueling stations in Indiana and, in partnership with Fair Oaks Farms, manages a fleet of 42 CNG milk-transport trucks. By autumn, states the JV announcement, “these trucks will run entirely on renewable CNG made from manure from the dairy’s cows.”
The new JV “allows us to complete more renewable CNG projects alongside a strong financial and operating partner,” said Amp founder and CEO Nate Laurell.
