Chart Industries has announced that its subsidiary Chart Ferox has been awarded a contract by Shell to provide three LNG fuelling stations for heavy-duty trucks in the Netherlands.
Shell fuel stations
Shell tendered the stations in 2012 and selected Chart Ferox to design, supply, install and commission the equipment for the stations. Chart Ferox will contract the installation works with local company Hamer.
The fuel stations will be opened to the public during late summer 2014. They will be fully automatic, low working pressure and have a storage capacity to fuel 100 - 150 trucks per day, using two LNG dispensers.
LNG growth opportunities
“This investment is in line with the growth we see across the globe in LNG end user equipment and will really boost the use of LNG as truck fuel. This is another positive development for Chart that highlights our LNG growth opportunities, and we are happy to be working with Shell,” commented Hans Lonsain, managing director of Chart Ferox.
“Shell is investing in the infrastructure that will bring this innovative, cost-competitive and environmentally beneficial fuel to our customers,” added Elen Phillips, VP, Shell Fuels Sales & Marketing Americas.
