An agreement for Love’s Travel Stops to purchase Trillium CNG has been finalized. Combined, Love’s and Trillium now operate 65 public-access compressed natural gas facilities.
“Trillium CNG brings 20 years of knowledge and skill in the CNG industry to the Love’s family of companies and we’re proud to have them on board,” said Frank Love, co-CEO of Love’s. “The addition of Trillium bolsters the CNG dimension of Love’s customer offerings and brings enhanced, fleet-focused services from the Love’s organization to CNG Customers.”
Trillium has also recently been awarded a contract from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)—a 20-year public-private partnership under which Trillium will design, build, operate and maintain 29 compressed natural gas (CNG) facilities in Pennsylvania.
“This is an expansive project that will provide cleaner-burning fuel at a stable cost for transit authorities and residents in dozens of communities,” said Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas for Love’s. “This agreement highlights Trillium’s record of partnering with the public sector and we look forward to building on that strength. This agreement affirms our continued commitment to the CNG industry.”
The locations will supply CNG to more than 1,600 CNG buses at transit agencies across the state. The majority of the facilities will be for private use. Seven locations will serve the motoring public, including light, medium- and heavy-duty trucks. The fueling sites will be strategically placed throughout the state to give fleets and motorists convenient access to more CNG locations. The agreement also includes CNG-related updates to existing transit maintenance and storage facilities.
