Representatives of Frito-Lay North America, ampCNG and Trillium CNG joined officials from the city of Orlando and state of Florida in cutting the ribbon to a new fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) station. The station, located at Lewis Petroleum’s Silver Star Fuelman in the Princeton Industrial Park, just two blocks from Frito-Lay North America’s Orlando plant, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will have two dual-hose dispensers, allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time. The station also features Trillium CNG’s 10 GGE per minute fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor. Frito-Lay will use this facility to fuel its fleet of CNG tractor-trailers.
“This station has the added benefit of providing 24/7 CNG fueling for heavy-duty trucking in the area due to the station’s proximity to Interstate 4 and the East-West Expressway,” said Mary Boettcher, president, Trillium CNG.
“This CNG station connects southern Florida to CNG infrastructure throughout the southeast, creating an opportunity for local and regional fleets to realize the economic and environmental benefits of CNG,” added Nate Laurell, CEO of ampCNG.
