Joint Venture CNG Stations in Georgia and Texas
Amp Trillium is formally opening its compressed natural gas fueling station in Perry, Ga. today. Separately, the Evo Trillium joint venture has broken ground for a CNG station at the Central Freight Lines terminal in Fort Worth.
Frito-Lay North America is a key customer at Perry, as it selected Trillium CNG late in 2012 to build public fueling infrastructure supporting its natural gas vehicles fleet, as well as other users. The Perry station is the third of five by Trillium for Frito-Lay.
The station, built in league with AmpCNG, is hosted by the Davis Oil Company on Perry Parkway, ten miles from Frito-Lay’s plant in Kathleen, Ga. Proximity to Interstate 75 “provides easy access and convenient CNG fueling for heavy-duty truck fleets between Atlanta and Valdosta, Ga.,” states today’s announcement.
Trillium Technology for Fast CNG Fills
The 24/7 Amp Trillium station at Perry has two dual-hose dispensers, allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time. It features Trillium CNG’s fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
The Evo Trillium station for Central Freight in Fort Worth will likewise be public access, will likewise have Trillium’s fast-fill technology, and will have four dispensers. It’s to open this spring.
Like its partners, Tolleson, Ariz.-based Evo CNG is helping establish a national network of fast-fill public access CNG fueling stations for heavy-duty transportation. Evo CNG is a sister company of Freightliner of Arizona. The Evo Trillium joint venture was formed last year.
