Trillium to Build New CNG Stations in Florida and Colorado
Trillium CNG (a Love’s Company) has signed two significant new contracts to build CNG stations in Miami and Gunnison, Colorado. Trillium will design, operate, and maintain the stations; upgrade maintenance facilities; and supply CNG fuel to Miami-Dade Transit, which has ordered 300 new 40-foot Xcelsior CNG buses. The new CNG buses will replace 300 old diesel buses.
Love’s Trillium CNG will also design, own, operate, and maintain a CNG and RNG fueling station in Gunnison for Gunnison County and the Gunnison Valley Rural Transportation Authority. The station will serve the county’s fleet vehicles, the bus fleet, and public vehicles. It will fill a gap of nearly 300 miles on U.S. Highway 50 between Pueblo and Grand Junction, Colorado.
