Central Freight Lines Welcomes CNG Station in Ft. Worth, Texas
Fort Worth, May 20, 2015 – EVO Trillium, LLC , the joint venture partnership between EVO CNG and Trillium CNG, celebrated the Grand Opening of their new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station located at 5188 East Loop 820 South, Fort Worth, Texas with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Earth Day, April 22, 2015.
Dignitaries in attendance included the Honorable Betsy Price, Mayor of Fort Worth, Susan Shifflett, Regional Coordinator of the Railroad Commission of Texas, and John Esparza, President and CEO of the Texas Trucking Association.
The station is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It has four dual hose dispensers with NGV-1 and T-5000 nozzles and features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor (HY-C). The station has been designed to accommodate Class 8 tractors and trailers, as well as smaller vehicles.
“EVO CNG is extremely excited about the opportunity to work with Central Freight Lines in their effort to become a clean fleet,” said Danny Cuzick, President of EVO CNG. “We recognize its pioneering efforts in the field of alternative fuels and look forward to working with Trillium and Central in their clean fuel endeavors. We’d also like to thank our Trillium partners for their continued support and expertise as we expand the population of EVO Trillium stations. And, we appreciate the significant financial and regulatory assistance of the State of Texas Commission of Environmental Quality.”
“I want to congratulate and thank Central Freight for helping strengthen Texas’s natural gas fueling infrastructure,” Commissioner David Porter said. “Natural gas is a Texas fuel. Using more of it means more jobs and revenue for our economy, but most importantly, using more natural gas allows us to rely less on foreign energy and helps America achieve energy independence.
“This is a proud moment for Central Freight Lines,” said Don Orr, President and CEO of Central Freight. “We made a commitment to a clean air initiative because we knew it was the right thing to do,” continued Don. “ We feel confident with our newest CNG equipment, our drivers are the safest drivers on the road today, and we are supporting not only the state but many of our customers who are entrenched in the oil and gas industry. This Fort Worth CNG fueling station helps us close the infrastructure gap that existed in servicing the Texas triangle efficiently.”
“It is only fitting that the Grand Opening of the Fort Worth station be celebrated on Earth Day, “ said Mary Boettcher, president, Trillium CNG. “Compared to diesel, CNG is less costly, burns cleaner and is an abundant domestic transportation fuel. We strongly support Central Freight Lines’ decision to add CNG powered trucks to their fleets. It is a privilege to be working with EVO CNG and Central freight Lines who are committed to CNG as a fuel source to power the nation’s heavy-duty fleets.”
This project is funded in part by the State of Texas through a Clean Transportation Triangle Grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
