The Trillium and LDG team.
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Secretary Leslie S. Richards yesterday announced that the Trillium CNG team, which includes Larson Design Group (LDG) of Williamsport, has been selected for the department’s Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) transit fueling station Public-Private Partnership (P3) project.
Through the $84.5 million project, Trillium and LDG will design, build, finance, operate, and maintain CNG fueling stations at 29 public transit agency sites through a 20-year P3 agreement. Stations will be constructed over the next five years and the firms will also make CNG-related upgrades to existing transit maintenance facilities.
“This project was the result of LDG’s desire to invest in innovation,” said Keith Kuzio, president and CEO of LDG. “This is a big win for LDG, and will ultimately be a big win for Pennsylvanians, too.”
Matt Nealis, Project Manager with LDG and head of the company’s CNG initiative, said, “This selection caps a nearly 5-year partnership between Trillium and LDG as teaming partners for CNG fueling and conversion projects throughout the United States.”
This marks LDG’s second involvement in a major P3 project in Pennsylvania. As a member of the Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners team, LDG assisted with the replacement of 558 bridges across Pennsylvania by providing survey, bridge design, and construction inspection services.
