A newly constructed compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station, built by Trillium CNG, is now operating at the Roche Oil, Inc.’s Pacific Pride Cardlock at 1120 E. Paige Ave. in Tulare. The station is located on the south side of Tulare on Exit 85 off Interstate 99. An open house was held at the station on May 29.
The new Trillium CNG station is expected to be the primary fueling location for Northwest Food Products Transportation LLC. “This will be good for business and also the environment,” said Greg Nelson, transportation manager for Northwest Food Products.
“We operate 17 CNG-fueled trucks in our fleet, so having a CNG refueling station nearby will improve our efficiencies in operations.”
“We are excited to not only be the official CNG refueling stop in this area for Northwest Food Products, but also thrilled that other CNG fueled vehicles will be able to fill up at the new location and take advantage of other services we provide,” said Courtney Roche of Roche Oil, Inc.
Trillium CNG built the refueling station to allow for easy access by heavy-duty fleet trucks. The new CNG station will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It will have two dual-hose dispensers allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and will feature Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. The station will accept all major credit cards and fleet cards.
“We are excited to bring this environmentally friendly, safe, and economical fuel to fleet vehicles in the Tulare area,” said Mary Boettcher, president, Trillium CNG. “It’s great we can partner with both Northwest Food Products and Roche Oil who clearly understand the benefits of natural gas as a transportation fuel for heavy-duty fleets.”
Trillium CNG is a leading provider of CNG to fleets and also offers complete facility design, construction, operation and maintenance services. The company focus is on providing fueling assistance to heavy-duty fleets that require high performance solutions.
