amp Trillium LLC, the joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG, has opened a public-access compressed natural gas station in Newport TN.
Strategically located at Time Out Travel Center at 1130 West Highway 2570, the new station is a convenient place for CNG-powered trucks to refuel as they travel through western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee.
The Newport station services all CNG vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can fuel multiple Class-8 trucks simultaneously thanks to Trillium CNG’s proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressors. This station’s close proximity to Interstate 40 makes it an ideal location for amp Trillium’s anchor customer.
Donna Rolf, president of ampCNG, said, “Newport is a great location for our newest CNG station, as it provides a convenient refueling location for long-haul trucks traveling through Greenville, Spartanburg, and Asheville and will encourage more CNG adoption in Tennessee and North Carolina. We’re pleased that it only took a few short months to open this station and are proud to continue making CNG more easily accessible nationwide.”
Jonathan Overly, executive director of the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition, said, “This site is a great addition to the growing number of public CNG stations in Tennessee and opens up the I-40 corridor to CNG traffic of all sizes. We enjoy working with our member ampCNG and will continue talking to Tennessee fleets to see how this site can help them make the transition to using cleaner-burning, American CNG.”
amp Trillium now operates 22 CNG stations across the United States, including one in nearby Charlotte NC. It will continue to open several more in its mission to create a wide-reaching network of CNG refueling stations along trucking corridors throughout the nation.
