With vehicle fleet and ferry operators taking advantage of the environmental and economic benefits of switching to natural gas in increasing numbers, Chart has added a liquefied compressed natural gas (LCNG) fuelling option to its skid mounted LNG fuelling station, making it suitable for both LNG and CNG fuelled vehicles.
Installation and commissioning are reduced to a few days, as the station is skid mounted. Civil works are simplified, which results in cost savings, and the complete station can easily be relocated to another location, if required. It is an excellent fueling solution for vehicle fleet bases, remote locations and small ports. It can also act as a temporary fuelling solution, either until a permanent station is built, or as a stop-gap until demand dictates a requirement for a larger, permanent station.
The compact system includes the latest technology, such as fully automated operation, remote control access and submerged pump for a fast refuelling action. The station also incorporates the Flowcom 3000 dispenser, designed and built by Chart’s German based subsidiary, Flow Instruments GmbH, for highly accurate metering and measuring.
Initially launched three years ago, the skid mounted LNG fuelling station is in service in a number of European locations and current backlog includes an order from Prima LNG for two further stations, which will be installed in the UK for Calor Gas Ltd.
