Early Transit Adopter’s Private Station Is Getting a Makeover
With Ariel Compressors by ANGI & J-W Power, TGT Dispensers
Following a competitive solicitation process, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority in Texas has selected Love’s Trillium CNG to provide a series of upgrades to its private compressed natural gas fueling facility.
“In addition to providing operations and maintenance services, Trillium will upgrade aging equipment, which will help FWTA operate approximately 200 CNG vehicles more efficiently,” the company says.
“Fort Worth Transportation Authority was an early adopter of compressed natural gas and has seen the environmental and cost-saving benefits associated with it,” Trillium CNG managing director Bill Cashmareck said in a release.
“The improvements ensure FWTA can continue its commitment to CNG while providing reliable service to its riders in Tarrant County.”
New Compressors & Dispensers
A new gas line supplied by SiEnergy will increase pressure to the fueling station, Trillium says. Three gas-powered compressors will be replaced with electric-drive units and Trillium will upgrade the gas dryer and replace all six fueling dispensers.
Trillium says it was also chosen to replace the station’s two remaining gas-powered units with new gas-powered compressors.
All of the new compressors are being supplied by Ariel, Trillium says. ANGI Energy will package the electric-drive units and J-W Power will handle the gas-powered units. The new dispensers will be supplied by TGT/Tulsa Gas Technologies.
Faster Fueling at Lower Cost
“The upgrades will allow buses to fuel faster, while providing a substantial decrease in operating cost.” Work is expected to be complete by late 2018.
Trillium began supporting the Lancaster Avenue FWTA station in 2011 with operations and preventative maintenance services.
