Trillium CNG, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group, and AMP Americas announced a joint venture, AMP Trillium, focused on building a network of compressed natural gas (CNG) stations across the United States.

Initially, AMP Trillium will construct stations along the Interstate 65 and I-75 trucking corridors and major routes in Texas, with the first station breaking ground by autumn 2012. The stations will be open to the public, though the main customers will likely be heavy-duty and long-haul trucking fleets.

The new stations will feature fast-fill capabilities and redundant equipment providing increased fill speed and reduced downtime while delivering reliability backed by a 24/7 on-call service-team. Stations will also accept fleet cards and major credit cards and offer special fuel-pricing programs to encourage fleets to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of CNG. To further accentuate the project’s sustainability benefits, AMP Trillium plans to use renewable CNG whenever possible.

Both Trillium CNG and AMP Americas bring substantial experience and expertise to the joint venture. Trillium CNG is respected within the alternative fuels industry and the CNG marketplace for its facility design, construction, operations, and maintenance capabilities.

AMP Americas owns two CNG fueling stations in Indiana and, in partnership with Fair Oaks Farms, manages a fleet of 42 CNG milk-transport trucks. By autumn, these trucks will run entirely on renewable CNG made from manure produced by the dairy’s cows in a process called anaerobic digestion.
