As a first of its kind for the country, Chart’s latest compact LNG regasification station is fully operational on-site in Mexico. Located around 45 minutes away from Queretaro, the site lacked connection to the pipeline grid hence the LNG satellite station is a perfect solution enabling a local business to use green and economical natural gas for power, instead of more expensive and polluting LPG, in their greenhouse operations.
The regasification station mimics the familiar fuelling model of diesel, propane and other LPGs whereby an external provider delivers the liquid fuel via truck for storage on site in a horizontal tank. Chart’s complete system then vaporises the LNG to supply the end-user with natural gas at the point of use, exactly as if they were connected to the pipe line grid.
The station was supplied as a skid mounted, fully factory assembled and tested package, which meant minimal ground preparations and civil work, single truck transport and crane lift and installation and commissioning completed inside two days. Full automation with Bluetooth monitoring and controls complete the picture for the seamless transition to natural gas.
