Trillium announced that it is adding two new public CNG fueling stations to its network of California locations. The company designed and built the stations at two Love’s Travel Stops located in Lost Hills and Tehachapi, California. The facilities will offer biomethane fueling capabilities to fleet customers. Produced entirely from organic waste streams, it is a low-carbon fuel and interchangeable with pipeline-quality natural gas that reduces greenhouse gas emissions 40-125% (depending on the feedstock) when compared to diesel.
The new CNG stations will feature two fast-fill dispensers and will be heavy-duty vehicle accessible. Slated to open in the first quarter of 2020, these two new stations will add to the network of more than 30 private and public Trillium locations in California.
“We are excited to expand our network and bring access to renewable natural gas fueling to our many fleet customers operating in California’s Central Valley,” said JP Fjeld-Hansen, vice president of Trillium. “Trillium continues to lead in providing clean fueling options and innovative solutions that meet the needs of our diverse customers – helping fleets reach their sustainability goals while improving their bottom line.”
Gemini Motor Transport, the primary fuel carrier for Love’s Travel Stops, will be fueling its growing CNG fleet of tractor trailers, which use the new Cummins Westport Low NOx 12-liter natural gas engine, with biomethane from the two new locations, as well as an existing station in Tulare.
The 24/7 stations will be the first Trillium facilities in Kern County, a vital transit corridor for California.
