Trillium CNG, an Illinois-based provider of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and fueling stations, is on schedule in executing its growth strategy announced last June and intends to provide 101 public access Class 8 accessible CNG stations by year-end 2016. The site locations are based on customers’ demands that CNG fueling stations be built near their key shipping lanes with proximity to major interstate highways.
Since June 2013, Trillium CNG added eight heavy duty public access CNG fueling stations to its network and has an additional 26 sites under contract, expected to be built by the end of this year. Trillium explains that according to the April 20 U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) data base, this is about twice the number of planned CNG public fueling stations compared to its nearest competitor. By the end of 2014, the company expects to have 61 CNG public fueling stations either in operation or under contract.
The Trillium business model for public access stations consists of securing a fuel purchase agreement with a customer for each station location. Trillium offers a flexible business model to meet a wide range of customer needs for both public access and private CNG fueling locations. Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG says, “Fleet operators know that we stake our reputation on delivering a great fueling experience for our customers – fast, safe and reliable.”
