Trillium Now Operates Nation’s Soon-To-Be Largest Single Compressed Natural Gas Station in Las Vegas Valley
Love's Alternative-Fuels Branch to Bring Comprehensive O&M Services to Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada
HOUSTON, August 21, 2018 - One of the nation's leading providers of alternative fuels systems and renewable fuels now operates the nation's soon-to-be largest single compressed natural gas (CNG) station. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) in Las Vegas, Nevada, selected Trillium, a Love's Company, to be its new operations and maintenance provider to its two CNG stations. The stations currently provide fuel to more than 330 paratransit buses and more than 230 fixed-route buses powered by CNG. These numbers are expected to increase over the next five years as the RTC converts its fleet to nearly 100-percent CNG vehicles.
Trillium will implement a comprehensive CNG maintenance plan for RTC including proactive, scheduled and emergency maintenance. The four-year contract began July 2018 and contains two optional one-year extensions.
"Safety and preventative maintenance are paramount in operations of this magnitude," said Bill Cashmareck, managing director of Trillium. "Keeping RTC rolling in the best possible shape is of the utmost importance, not only to the city's millions of visitors, but also to residents who rely on paratransit and route services to commute to work and beyond."
Trillium will provide CNG maintenance services at RTC's Integrated Bus Maintenance Facility (IBMF) located at 2751 Simmons, North Las Vegas, Nev. 89030 and Sunset Maintenance Facility (SMF) located at 5165 West Sunset Road, Las Vegas, Nev. 89118.
