Trillium CNG, one of the nation’s leading providers of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle fueling facilities, and Larson Design Group (LDG) are being honored for their work in bringing 29 CNG fueling stations to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania as part of a public-private partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The Engineers’ Society of Western Pennsylvania (ESWP) presented Trillium and LDG with the Innovative Award at its annual awards ceremony February 15.
In 2016, Trillium and LDG partnered to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a program of CNG fueling stations in Pennsylvania. The stations will supply locally sourced CNG to more than 1,600 public-transit buses at 29 agencies across the commonwealth to save fuel and operational costs at a net zero development cost to taxpayers. Seven of the 29 facilities will be open to the public. ESPW members submit nominees for the annual awards, and recipients are selected by a panel of ESPW past-presidents.
“This was an unprecedented project that shows the value of public-private partnerships,” said Bill Cashmareck, managing director of Trillium CNG. “We’re honored to receive this award along with Larson Design Group and to bring fuel alternatives to fleets and consumers in Pennsylvania.”
Of the 29 CNG facilities, eight are already open and seven others are expected to open this year. Click here for a list of all public Trillium CNG locations.
