LAKEVILLE, Minn., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Holiday Stationstores, Inc., has added compressed natural gas (CNG) to their existing fueling and convenience store located at 21100 Kenrick Ave., Lakeville, MN. Trillium CNG™ built, and will maintain the public access fast-fill CNG fueling location. Trillium CNG™ has twenty years of experience and a national network of CNG locations.
"We recognize the need to offer customers a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel alternative and are pleased to partner with Trillium CNG™ on the opening," said Brian Ochocki, vice president for Holiday Companies. "This will be Holiday's second CNG fueling location and we are excited to offer local fleets this option at a convenient location open 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
Located just off of Interstate 35 just south of the Twin Cities, the station is open to all vehicles and has easy access in and out for heavy-duty fleet trucks. The dual hose dispenser will allow two semitrailers to fuel at the same time, and features Trillium CNG's proprietary fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.
"We are proud to be working with Holiday, a company that recognizes the importance of making CNG available in the Twin Cities market," said Bill Cashmareck, General Manager for Trillium CNG. "Fleet operators know that we stake our reputation on delivering a great fueling experience for our customers – fast, safe and reliable." Zobel also commented that in addition to the environmental impacts, 98 percent of the natural gas used in the United States is produced in North America. The CNG station in Lakeville is open to the public.
Compared with diesel, natural gas fuel offers a myriad of environmental benefits*, including an approximate 20-25 percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, up to a 50 percent reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions, a 70-90 percent reduction in carbon monoxide emissions and 67-94 percent lower particulate-matter emissions. It also offers much more stable pricing than gasoline or diesel.
A grand opening will be held at the Stationstore at 2:00PM on Monday, June 20. The event will feature speakers from the Clean Cities Coalition, Holiday, Trillium CNG and CenterPoint Energy and will also include a CNG fueling demonstration, equipment tour and open house.
