Station for Champion Brands is Northeast Florida’s First Public Access
Amp Trillium is holding a grand opening today for northeast Florida’s first public access compressed natural gas fueling outlet, a station for beverage distributor Champion Brands, Inc. in Jacksonville.
“The word is out – CNG is available in Northeast Florida,” CBI president and CEO Earl Benton says in a release. “This project is important not only to Jacksonville and our region, but also to the future of our economic viability and our goal of making Jacksonville the transportation and logistics hub of America,” he said.
The new CNG station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and uses a public access card reader system. Designed for easy access for heavy duty trucks, it includes two dual hose dispensers, allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
All-CNG by Mid-2017
CBI’s “first wave” of CNG trucks hit the road in October 1 – ten Freightliners from Jacksonville’s Tom Nehl Truck. According to today’s announcement, “Their diesel fleet will be fully replaced with CNG by July 2017″ – for a total of 40 vehicles.
CBI services six northeast Florida counties, representing 62 domestic and foreign breweries, four local craft breweries, and Red Bull.
Amp Trillium is a joint venture of AmpCNG and Trillium CNG.
