Trillium Completes Colo. CNG Station Install

Posted on March 18, 2013 by Alex Roman, Managing Editor

In February, Trillium CNG celebrated the opening of a new CNG station at the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA) in Glenwood Springs, Colo. The station will fuel the RFTA’s new bus rapid transit (BRT) VelociRFTA system, which will operate CNG buses and connect five towns from Glenwood Springs to Aspen, Colo.

The fueling facility features three Ariel Corp. compressors (200 horsepower each) and can handle 280 diesel gallon equivalents per hour, with full redundancy. Trillium will also provide years of operations and maintenance support. The total cost for the compressor station was $2.5 million, with RFTA spending an additional $2.7 million on infrastructure improvements, including replacing the HVAC system and adding sensors. The agency expects to fill two vehicles at a time in about 12 minutes each.

Roaring Fork currently has four Gillig CNG buses with tank assemblies from Agility Fuel Systems, using Type III cylinders from Worthington-SCI, with delivery of the remaining 18 set to occur in July.
