A university in the Northeast United States is expected to save millions of dollars and reduce the carbon footprint at their campus over the next few years, by converting their back-up fuel from diesel to clean burning natural gas, through a turn-key solution engineered and built by Chart Inc.
The regasification unit stores LNG in three 18 000 gallon cryogenic tanks and revaporises it for use, on demand during peak times, to supplement the pipeline supplying the central heating plant for the entire campus.
Completely engineered and built in house, the solution comprises Chart vacuum technology. This proprietary superior insulation system includes cryogenic storage tanks, Thermax vaporisers and vacuum insulated pipe. The fully modularised unit enables easy, fast and cost-efficient installation with on-site commissioning. The project was operational for the start of the 2016-17 heating season.
