TOLLESON, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- EVO CNG and its joint venture partner, TrilliumCNG are pleased to announce the start of construction for a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station located at the Central Freight Lines terminal located at 5200 East Loop 820 South in Fort Worth, Texas. The station will open Spring 2014.
The station will have public access and be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will have four dual hose dispensers and will feature Trillium CNG's proprietary fast-fill technology. The station has been designed to accommodate Class 8 tractors and trailers, as well as smaller vehicles.
"EVO CNG is extremely excited about the opportunity to work with Central Freight Lines in its effort to become a clean fleet," said Danny Cuzick, President of EVO CNG. "We recognize its pioneering efforts in the field of alternative fuels and look forward to working with both Trillium and Central Freight Lines in their clean fuel endeavors."
"This is our third CNG fueling facility constructed within Texas," said Don Orr, President and CEO of Central Freight Lines. "Our future plans are to expand our current 114 CNG vehicle fleet and support the operations with additional, strategically located fueling stations. Improving our transportation efficiencies is something our customers expect from us. Incorporating abundant, clean-burning, domestically produced natural gas, CNG vehicles in our fleet, will help us improve efficiencies, operate more economically, reduce pollution and support our local economy. With the addition of this Fort Worth site, EVO CNG, is joining with Central Freight Lines in creating the critical infrastructure required to meet our clean fleet initiative."
"We are excited to be partnering with EVO CNG," said Mary Boettcher, Trillium CNG president. "The joint venture combines EVO's Class 8 trucking knowledge with Trillium's 20 plus years of compressed natural gas experience. Likewise, it is a privilege to be working with Central Freight Lines, an award winning less-than-truckload carrier, who's committed to natural gas and improving air quality through the reduction of harmful carbon emissions."
