With a mission to displace liquid fuels with compressed natural gas via ultra-fast-fill CNG fueling stations for long-haul truck fleets nationwide, amp Trillium opened a public-access compressed natural gas station in northern Jacksonville, Fla., Wednesday.
A partnership between Trillium CNG and Chicago-based ampCNG, amp Trillium celebrated the opening with a tour and fueling demonstration in association with the Florida Energy Summit.
With the company’s first station located in southern Jacksonville, this second site enables three Class 8 trucks to fuel simultaneously at 10 diesel gallon equivalents per minute; it also facilitates CNG traffic throughout the entire area.
"We are very happy to open our second CNG station in Jacksonville, Florida, and expand our ever-growing network of public-access stations in the United States,” Donna Rolf, ampCNG president, told Florida Business Daily. “Strategically located near several large distribution facilities, this station enables the many fleets in the area to convert to CNG, a cleaner and less expensive fuel."
The station, at 4100 Heckscher Drive along Interstate 295 at the GATE Station—Gateway to the Port, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to all CNG vehicles, including Class 8 trucks.
"This is another prime example of the business community seeing the opportunity in the energy space here in Jacksonville and choosing to make significant investment here,” Alan Mosley, Transportation, Energy and Logistics VP at Chamber and JAX Alliance executive director, said. “Market-driven infrastructure investment at strategic locations, such as this CNG fueling station in close proximity to JAXPORT, is a catalyst for public and private sector fleets to convert [to] this cleaner, more efficient fuel."
