A partnership, called amp Trillium LLC built a station at 523 Perry Parkway in Perry and have planned a grand opening event with state and local officials at 9 a.m. Wednesday, according to a news release.
The station, at the Davis Oil Co. commercial fueling center, opens to the public immediately following the ceremony. It is the first of four stations planned in Georgia during the next two years.
While open to all vehicles, the station is designed to accommodate access to large vehicles including big rigs. The station has two dispensers so two vehicles can fuel simultaneously at a rate of 10 gallons per minute. It will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and along with Trillium cards, major credit and fleet cards will be accepted.
Frito-Lay North America selected Trillium as a station partner to build public fueling infrastructure to serve its fleet of heavy-duty trucks, and the Kathleen plant will use the station for refueling, the release stated.
“This is the third of five (compressed natural gas) stations we’ve been awarded to build for Frito-Lay North America,” Mary Boettcher, Trillium CNG president, said in the release. “We’re proud to support Frito-Lay’s sustainability goals to improve fleet fuel efficiency through the reduction of harmful carbon emissions.”
Amp Trillium is a joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG formed in 2012 to build a network of CNG stations across the U.S. to serve the commercial trucking industry.
