amp Trillium opens Jacksonville CNG station

Feb. 27, 2015

A new public-access compressed natural gas fueling station has opened in Jacksonville, FL by amp Trillium, the joint venture of ampCNG and Trillium CNG.

The station will service Champion Brands Incorporated’s (CBI) fleet as well as the public. It is located off of Highway 1 near the intersection of Interstates 295 and 95 in Jacksonville’s Southside Industrial Park.

“We are very excited to open Jacksonville’s first CNG station and believe this will bring more CNG-fueled trucks to northern Florida. ampCNG is committed to providing heavy trucking fleets with convenient access to CNG and plans to open several more CNG stations across the country this year,” said Steve Josephs, director of engineering and co-founder of ampCNG.

The new station will be open 24 hours a day and uses a public access card reader system. The station includes two dual hose dispensers, allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and features Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.

The station host, Champion Brands, has begun replacing its diesel fleet with CNG trucks.  The first wave of CNG trucks hit the road Oct. 1, 2014.  The diesel fleet will be fully replaced with CNG by July 2017.

“I couldn’t be happier,” said Earl Benton, president & CEO Champion Brands. “amp Trillium is a great partner. This project is important not only to Jacksonville and our region, but also to the future of our economic viability and our goal of making Jacksonville the transportation and logistics hub of America. It also supports the Global Cities Initiative of increasing exports. The word is out - CNG is available in Northeast Florida.”
