EVO Trillium LLC has cut the ribbon on a new compressed natural gas refueling station in Tolleson, Ariz., that will help support Swift Transportation's and Sheehy Enterprises' fleets of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles, and will also be available to the public.
This large facility, located at 8301 W. Sherman St., features four dual-hose dispensers with NGV-1 and T-5000 nozzles, backed with Trillium CNG's proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. The station has been designed to accommodate Class 8 tractors, as well as light-duty NGVs.
‘The opening of the Tolleson location is a key element in Sheehy Express' vision to run an all-CNG fleet from the Midwest to the Phoenix area,’ says John Sheehy, owner of Sheehy Enterprises. ‘This location enables us to run a high-speed freight lane from key markets in Phoenix to Chicago. Adding additional fueling locations is making nationwide operations on CNG possible and practical.’
‘We are pleased that EVO Trillium has built a CNG station near our main terminal facilities in Phoenix,’ adds Jerry Moyes, CEO of Swift Transportation. ‘We plan to fuel a significant number of trucks at this location.’
