Construction for the Tucson site began last month and it is scheduled to open in June 2012. The Casa Grande site will break ground shortly and will follow close behind with a scheduled opening in August. Both stations will incorporate the Pinnacle hydraulic intensifier compressor, which optimizes the use of the high pressure storage at the station and allows trucks to fuel at rates of 8 to 10 gallons per minute.
Special fuel pricing programs will be available to encourage other fleets to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of CNG. “Its low price is changing the equation for truck fleets. The savings from using natural gas will provide a rapid payback for the project and generate ongoing value for the company,” said Charles Koontz, VP of Commercial Operations for Trillium CNG.
