Trillium CNG, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group Inc., opened its new compressed natural gas station in Green Bay, Wis. It is Trillium's second CNG station in Brown County; the first, which opened in 2012 in De Pere, Wis.
The new public access CNG station can accommodate Class 8 semi-trucks with 53-foot trailers and has two dispensers. The station features Trillium's hydraulic intensifier that provides an ultra-fast refueling experience at rates up to 10 diesel gas equivalents per minute.
Green Bay-based carriers Paper Transport, Inc. and Contract Transport Services have agreed to become the CNG stations primary anchors. The station was designed to allow for expansion as the demand for natural gas-powered-vehicles in the area grows.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a $100 million plan to modernize the city’s freight distribution system, including investing in a new distribution network, increasing maritime and rail involvement, and promoting the use of low-emissions trucks.
