amp Trillium Opens CNG Station in Texas
On Wednesday, amp Trillium, the joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG, announced that the first public access CNG station in the city of Sweetwater, Texas, has officially opened. The amp Trillium station will service Class-8 trucks as well as all other vehicle classes. It is the fourth of seven public fueling stations to be opened as part of a previously announced agreement with Dairy Farmers of America and Select Milk Producers to convert a portion of their diesel fleets to CNG trucks. The amp Trillium station is located west of Dallas and Fort Worth and south from Lubbock on I-20. The station fills a major CNG fueling void in this area of the state. Three Class-8 trucks are able to fuel simultaneously at 10-12 GGE per minute utilizing Trillium CNG’s fast-fill proprietary hydraulic intensifier technology. The joint venture is set to bring three additional stations to Texas (Brock, Kerrville and Midland) within the next six months. amp Trillium stations in Amarillo, Waco and Harrold opened earlier this year. To celebrate the opening of the station, officials from the City of Sweetwater and the State of Texas, as well amp Trillium representatives, will attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony in early 2015. “With about 8,500 tractor trailer rigs passing through on a daily basis, the station will play a huge role in keeping our West Texas air clean,” said Ken Becker, executive director of Sweetwater Enterprise for Economic Development (SEED).
