There are plans to offer renewable natural gas
Trillium CNG and AMP Americas team up to construct stations along US major routes
Both companies announced a joint venture, AMP Trillium, focused on constructing a network of natural gas refueling sites, initially along the I-65 and I-75 trucking corridors and major routes in Texas, with the first station breaking ground by fall 2012. The stations will be open to the public, though the primary customers will likely be heavy-duty and long-haul trucking fleets.
The new CNG stations will feature fast-fill capabilities and redundant equipment providing increased fill speed and reduced downtime while delivering exceptional reliability backed by a 24/7 on call service-team. To further accentuate the project's sustainability benefits, AMP Trillium plans to use renewable natural gas whenever possible.
"We're very excited by what this joint venture means to AMP and our industry. It allows us to complete more renewable CNG projects alongside a strong financial and operating partner," said Nate Laurell, AMP's founder and CEO. "Oil, being globally priced, is expensive, but natural gas is not only abundant in the US, it is also cleaner, producing 20 to 30 percent fewer greenhouse emissions than diesel fuel."
AMP Americas currently owns two CNG fueling stations in Indiana and, in partnership with Fair Oaks Farms, manages a fleet of 42 CNG milk-transport trucks. By fall, these trucks will run entirely on renewable natural gas made from manure from the dairy's cows.
