Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was on hand to celebrate the opening of the EVO Trillium CNG facility in Oak Creek Wisconsin.
EVO CNG and its joint venture partner, Trillium CNG, celebrated the grand opening this week of what they say is the largest compressed natural gas fueling station in Wisconsin, located in Oak Creek, and the first to open under their partnership.
"We are excited about the future of compressed natural gas as a transportation fuel in the United States and, more specifically, in Wisconsin," said Danny Cuzick, president and CEO of EVO CNG. "Wisconsin is one of the states on the leading edge of CNG infrastructure development. EVO CNG is proud to add our name to the list of CNG stations built specifically for fueling Class 8 tractor-trailers here in the Badger state."
The station's anchor tenant, Sheehy Mail Contractors, operates ten Freightliner Cascadia tractors with Cummins-Westport ISX G engines, and is planning to add more this summer, according to both companies.
The station is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It has four dispensers and features Trillium CNG's proprietary “fast-fill technology”. The station has been designed to accommodate Class 8 tractors and trailers, as well as smaller vehicles.
EVO Trillium is a joint venture between EVO CNG and Trillium CNG, formed in 2013 to build a network of fast-fill public access CNG stations across the U.S. to serve the heavy-duty commercial trucking industry.
EVO CNG is a sister company of Freightliner of Arizona, one of the largest independent Freightliner dealerships in the United States.
