amp Trillium LLC, the joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG, has opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) station in northern Jacksonville, Fla. The station is located at 4100 Heckscher Dr. along Interstate 295 at a GATE retail location.
With Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor (HY-C), this new station enables three Class 8 trucks to fuel simultaneously at 10 DGEs per minute. amp Trillium also owns and operates another CNG station in the area, which is located in southern Jacksonville at 9711 Mining Dr. off Highway 1 and 295. The joint venture says that now that there are two stations strategically located north and south of the city, CNG trucks can travel in either direction without needing to stray from their designated routes to refuel.
‘Adding a CNG fueling station is consistent with the GATE philosophy of being responsive to all of our customers’ fueling requirements,” says John Peyton, president of GATE. “With proximity to the Port of Jacksonville and I-295, our first retail location is ideally positioned to service the needs of both retail and commercial customers while offering a cleaner, more environmentally friendly fuel alternative.”
amp Trillium now operates 24 CNG station across the U.S.
