Located at the Pacific Pride station, one mile south of the I-65 and I-24 split, the newly constructed fast-fill natural gas station will serve as the primary southeast fueling location for Green Bay, Wisconsin-based Paper Transport’s 100-vehicle fleet. “It supports our mission of reducing dependence on foreign petroleum in Tennessee through the use of domestically produced CNG,” said Atha Comiskey, executive director, Middle Tennessee Clean Fuels.
The facility, which is open to all vehicles that use compressed natural gas, uses a public access card reader system and is designed to allow easy access in and out by heavy-duty fleet trucks. The two dual hose dispensers allow two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
“We recognized the need to offer customers a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel alternative and are pleased to partner with Trillium CNG on the opening,” said Rob Jewell, vice president for Tri Star Energy, which owns the Pacific Pride station. “CNG fleets travelling these corridors — as well as local fleets — now have a conveniently located option open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
“We are proud to be working with Tri Star Energy and Paper Transport, who both recognize the importance of making CNG available in the Nashville market,” said Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG. “Fleet operators know that we stake our reputation on delivering a great fueling experience for our customers — fast, safe and reliable.”
