Ohio Fleet Operator Precision Strip Plans to Convert 100 Trucks,|
Minnesota’s Holiday Stationstores Has 496 Outlets in Ten States
Trillium CNG has opened new compressed natural gas fueling stations for Holiday Stationstores in Duluth, Minn. and for Heritage Cooperative in Kenton, Ohio.
Trillium designed, built and will maintain the public access fast-fill CNG station for Holiday in Duluth. Holiday finance VP Brian Ochocki termed CNG “a lower-cost solution with much more stable retail prices than gasoline or diesel” in a Trillium release.
The new Duluth station boasts easy access for heavy-duty fleet trucks. It will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A dual hose dispenser will allow two trucks to fuel at the same time. The facility features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
Holiday Stationstores is a privately owned, Minnesota-based company with 496 corporate and franchise locations in ten states including Alaska.
Kenton Agriculture Campus Expansion
The new station in Ohio with Heritage Cooperative is part of the organization’s $7 million Kenton Agriculture Campus Expansion. Like the new Trillium CNG station in Minnesota, it’s designed for large trucks, will be open 24/7, and features the hydraulic intensifier for faster fills.
Trillium CNG sales VP Charles Koontz called it “a great partnership with Heritage Cooperative, Precision Strip and the City of Kenton, who all recognize the importance of making CNG available.”
“With the addition of CNG, we plan to convert our Kenton fleet of trucks to 100% percent natural gas by the end of 2016,” Precision Strip transport GM Jim Lammers said in the Trillium announcement. Precision Strip processes, stores, and delivers rolled steel, aluminum, and copper to the automotive, appliance, industrial products, and beverage can industries.
Heritage Cooperative is an agriculture producer cooperative that provides products and services for 20 counties in central Ohio.
