Trillium CNG recently held grand openings for a pair of new compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling stations: one in Kenton, Ohio, and the other in Duluth, Minn.
The company partnered with agriculture producer Heritage Cooperative on the facility in Ohio, which is located at 1305 S. Main St. in Kenton. The public-access station features three fast-fill CNG dispensers and was designed to accommodate Class 8 natural gas vehicles.
Precision Strip Inc. is among the site's anchor fleets. The company intends to convert all of its Kenton-based trucks to run on CNG by the end of 2016.
In Duluth, Trillium CNG developed a station that is co-located at 3931 W. 1st St. with a Holiday Stationstore retail gasoline/diesel fueling facility and convenience store. This CNG site is also public-access, with a single dual-hose dispenser for both light- and heavy-duty NGVs.
The new Duluth facility represents the first CNG refueling capacity for Holiday, which operates nearly 500 locations in 10 states.
