Trillium CNG, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group Inc., has officially opened its new compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the second CNG station in Brown County. The first was opened in 2012 in the city of De Pere. Trillium has set a goal of opening 101 CNG stations across 29 states during 2013-2016.
The new public access CNG station can accommodate Class 8 semi-trucks with 53-foot trailers and has two dispensers. The station is also equipped with Trillium’s patented hydraulic intensifier that provides a fast refueling experience at rates up to 10 diesel gas equivalents (DGE) per minute.
Green Bay-based carriers Paper Transport, Inc. and Contract Transport Services have agreed to become the CNG station’s primary anchors. The station was designed to allow for expansion as the demand for natural gas powered vehicles in the area grows.
Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG, said, “We continue to expand our CNG station network across the U.S. and are pleased to be providing additional access to CNG and its environmental and economic benefits in the Green Bay area.”
