Station Dating from 1998 Gets New Dispensers,
With Options, a New Lease Could Extend to 2022
Trillium CNG reports a new lease and new equipment for a natural gas vehicle fueling station dating from 1998 at the San Francisco International Airport. The upgrade is part of Trillium’s lease renewal signed earlier this year. The five-year SFO lease has two-year renewal options in 2018 and 2020.
“There are currently over 600 buses, vans, taxis, and autos which run on compressed natural gas at SFO which supports our goal to achieve zero-emissions in ground transportation,” airport director John Martin says in a Trillium CNG release.
“We thank the airport for renewing our lease and are glad to be able to support its environmental stewardship,” said Trillium CNG president Mary Boettcher.
81 Trillium CNG Stations by Mid-Year
“We’re very happy with CNG,” SFO senior transportation planner Roger Hooson told F&F – for low cost as well as low emissions.
Trillium has installed new dispensers, islands, canopies and signage at the SFO station, and says that by the end of the second quarter of 2014, it will be operating 81 compressed natural gas stations nationally, 54 of them public-access.
