A newly constructed compressed natural gas station, built by Trillium CNG™, is now operating at the Roche Oil, Inc.’s Pacific Pride Cardlock. The facility, located along a major trucking route on the south side of Tulare on Exit 85 off Interstate 99 between Fresno and Bakersfield, is expected to be the primary fueling location for Northwest Food Products Transportation LLC.
“This will be good for business and also the environment,” said Greg Nelson, transportation manager for Northwest Food Products. “We operate 17 CNG-fueled trucks in our fleet, so having a CNG refueling station nearby will improve our efficiencies in operations.”
Trillium CNG built the refueling station to allow for easy access by heavy-duty fleet trucks. It will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It will have two dual-hose dispensers allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and will feature Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
“We are excited to bring this environmentally friendly, safe, economical and fuel to fleet vehicles in the Tulare area. It’s great we can partner with both Northwest Food Products and Roche Oil who clearly understand the benefits of natural gas as a transportation fuel for heavy-duty fleets,” said Trillium CNG president Mary Boettcher.
