Northeast Florida welcomes first public-access CNG station

amp Trillium LLC, a joint venture between ampCNG and TrilliumCNG, and Champion Brands Incorporated celebrated the grand opening of the first public access compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in northeast Florida. The new 24-7 station in Jacksonville, Fla., will feature Trillium CNG’s HY-C fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.

The new station supports the region’s quest to be the transportation, logistics and natural gas hub of the Southeast. It also supports the Global Cities Initiative to increase exports.

“While many regions debate between purchasing CNG trucks first and then building a fueling station, or building a fueling station and then hoping trucks come, Jacksonville decided to do both at the same time,” said Donna Rolf, president of ampCNG.

The new station, which uses a public access card reader, includes two dual hose dispensers, enabling two semitrailers to fuel at the same time. This station marks an important milestone in host Champion Brands’ mission to replace its entire fleet of trucks to CNG by July 2017.
