Trillium receives D.C. Metro CNG service contract

Posted on January 6, 2011

Trillium was awarded a contract by Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to provide operations and maintenance services at their Bladensburg and Four Mile Run Bus divisions.

Together, these facilities fuel more than 460 CNG buses each night. Under this contract, WMATA also has the option to replace their existing compressors with new ones.

Trillium will supply locally-based service technicians for each facility and support WMATA's operations with 24/7 remote monitoring and service. The company took over operations of the fueling facilities on Jan. 1, 2011.

Trillium, a wholly-owned affiliate of Wagner & Brown Ltd, specializes in optimizing CNG station performance and can improve CNG station performance and reliability, while allowing normal use of the fueling station during the upgrade period, according to a company statement.
