amp Trillium LLC, the joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG, has opened a public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Sweetwater, Texas.
Located at 9409 S I-20 Frontage Rd., the station services Class-8 trucks, as well as any CNG vehicle. Three Class-8 trucks can fuel simultaneously at 10 to 12 GGE/minute with Trillium CNG's fast-fill proprietary hydraulic intensifier technology.
The CNG station, which is open 24/7, is the first in the City of Sweetwater. It is the fourth of seven public fueling stations to be opened as part of a previously announced agreement with Dairy Farmers of America and Select Milk Producers to convert a portion of their diesel fleets to CNG-powered trucks.
Directly en route for drivers heading west out of Dallas and Fort Worth and south from Lubbock on I-20, the station fills a major CNG fueling void in this area of the state, according to amp Trillium.
The joint venture is set to bring three additional stations to Texas (Brock, Kerrville and Midland) within the next six months. amp Trillium stations in Amarillo, Waco and Harrold opened earlier this year.
