The company has completed construction of a new public Class-8 accessible CNG station on the southwest side of Charlotte, North Carolina, which is part of an agreement with Frito-Lay North America to serve its fleet of heavy-duty tractor-trailers. In addition, Trillium will build, operate, and maintain a public access CNG fueling facility at an existing Holiday Stationstore location in Duluth, Minnesota.
“We recognize the need to offer customers a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel alternative and are pleased to partner with Trillium CNG™ on the opening,” said Brian Ochocki, vice president for Holiday Stationstores, which will also begin operating natural gas trucks in its fuel delivery fleet. “This will be Holiday’s first CNG fueling and we are excited to offer local fleets this option at a convenient location open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
The Holiday CNG station in Duluth, expected to be open to public in mid-September, will have easy access in and out for heavy-duty fleet trucks. The dual hose dispenser will allow two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and will features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
Moreover, Trillium CNG’s new fueling site in North Carolina is located one mile from I-485 and I-77, two major interstates that serve the greater Charlotte Metropolitan area, and is the fifth of eight stations the company has been awarded to build for Frito-Lay. “We’re proud to support Frito-Lay’s sustainability goals to improve fleet fuel efficiency through the reduction of carbon emissions,” said Mary Boettcher, Trillium CNG president.
This facility will operate 24/7 and also features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. There are two fueling lanes today with expansion for an additional lane as demand increases.
