CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/13/13 -- Trillium CNG, a business unit of Integrys Energy Group Inc. (NYSE: TEG), today cut the ribbon to officially open its new compressed natural gas (CNG) station at 1121 Radisson St., Green Bay, Wis., site of Bay Beach Shell, which is less than 1/2 mile from the North Webster Avenue exit off Interstate 43. It is Trillium's second CNG station in Brown County; the first, which opened in 2012 in De Pere, Wis.
The new public access CNG station can accommodate Class 8 semi-trucks with 53-foot trailers and has two dispensers. The station features Trillium's patented hydraulic intensifier that provides an ultra-fast refueling experience at rates up to 10 diesel gas equivalents (DGE) per minute.
Green Bay-based carriers Paper Transport, Inc. and Contract Transport Services have agreed to become the CNG stations primary anchors. The station was designed to allow for expansion as the demand for natural gas powered vehicles in the area grows.
Mary Boettcher, president of Trillium CNG, said, "We continue to expand our CNG station network across the U.S. and are pleased to be providing additional access to CNG and its environmental and economic benefits in the Green Bay area."
In conjunction with the station opening, Trillium held a CNG educational program in the morning and conducted two station tours including a fueling demonstration using trucks provided by Contract Transport Services and Paper Transport. Mark Radtke, executive vice president of shared services and chief strategy officer for Integrys Energy Group, cut the ribbon, assisted by Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt and Curt Reitz, president for Contract Transport Services.
