Trillium CNG and Holiday Stations Open CNG Station in Duluth, MN
CHICAGO, Sept. 26, 2014 – A grand opening ceremony was conducted yesterday at the Holiday station located at 3931 West First Street in Duluth, Minnesota. This marks Holiday’s first compressed natural gas (CNG) product offering to its customers. Trillium CNG designed, built and will maintain the public access fast-fill CNG station.
The ribbon cutting ceremonies included remarks from representatives from Trillium CNG, Holiday and local government officials. The event also featured a CNG fueling demonstration, equipment tour and open house.
“We are honored to be working with an innovative and respected fuel marketer like Holiday Stationstores who recognizes the importance of making CNG available in the Duluth area,” said Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG. Boettcher added that fleet operators know we stake our reputation on delivering a great fueling experience to our customers – fast, safe and reliable.
According to Brian Ochocki, vice president of finance for Holiday, “CNG is a lower-cost solution with much more stable retail prices than gasoline or diesel, due to the lower supply cost of natural gas when compared to other petroleum products. Natural gas also offers a variety of environmental benefits including lower greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide and particulate-matter emissions.“
The public access CNG station will have easy access for heavy-duty fleet trucks and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The dual hose dispenser will allow two trucks to fuel at the same time, and will feature Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
