New York City Transit and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Bus Co. selected Love’s Trillium CNG, part of the Love’s Family of Companies, to provide operations and maintenance services for six existing compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facilities.
Trillium CNG was selected for the seven-year contract after being the highest rated proposer in a competitive procurement. Trillium CNG will also perform upgrades at four of the fueling sites.
The private facilities are located throughout the New York City boroughs of Queens and The Bronx. Trillium CNG will remotely monitor the performance of the stations 24/7 from its headquarters in Houston, plus make regularly scheduled on-site visits and conduct annual fuel quality tests.
Upgrades will be made to the control systems and dispensers, as well as other management systems to ensure uninterrupted performance and lower energy and labor operating costs for the authority.
All work is expected to be completed by late this year.
