Chicago, IL – Officials from the city of Orlando and state of Florida joined representatives of ampCNG, Trillium CNG and Frito-Lay North America in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) station located at 2920 Silver Star Road in Orlando.
The station is located at Lewis Petroleum's Silver Star Fuelman in the Princeton Industrial Park, just two blocks from Frito-Lay North America's Orlando plant. Frito-Lay selected Trillium CNG to build natural gas infrastructure to fuel its fleet of CNG tractor-trailers.
The amp Trillium station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will have two dual-hose dispensers, allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time. The station also features Trillium CNG's 10 GGE per minute fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
"We're committed to supporting Frito-Lay's North America's CNG fueling infrastructure build-out plan. This station has the added benefit of providing 24/7 CNG fueling for heavy-duty trucking in the area due to the station's proximity to Interstate 4 and the East-West Expressway," said Mary Boettcher, president, Trillium CNG.
"This CNG station in Orlando is an important addition to our CNG network across the U.S.," said Nate Laurell, CEO of ampCNG. "It connects southern Florida to CNG infrastructure throughout the southeast, creating an opportunity for local and regional fleets to realize the economic and environmental benefits of CNG."
