Trillium CNG, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group, opened a new compressed natural gas fueling station in Charlotte, N.C. The CNG station is for Class 8 vehicles and will be located one mile from I-485 and I-77 in an industrial park off Brookford Street.
The station is part of an agreement with Frito-Lay North America, which selected Trillium to design, build, operate and maintain CNG stations to serve its fleet of heavy-duty tractor-trailers. The Charlotte station will be the fifth out of eight CNG stations that Trillium will be building for Frito-Lay, according to Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG.
The CNG station will operate 24/7 and use Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. There are two fueling lanes, with expansion for an additional lane as demand increases.
