Chart Ferox has been awarded a contract for the design, manufacture and commissioning of Croatia’s very first LNG vehicle fueling station. The skidded design incorporates Chart’s recently introduced 60m³ horizontal cryogenic storage tank together with many other innovative features for enhanced reliability and economy.
Chart’s proprietary Saturation on the Fly (SoF) vaporization technology ensures that the station is capable of fueling all LNG vehicles available on the market today, regardless of whether they’re equipped with spark ignited or compression engines. SoF eliminates additional pre-cooling and also improves the station’s overall heat management.
Additional energy efficiencies are realized through re-engineering of the station’s panel pipework and our in-house, MID certified, dispenser technology is a further integral part of the total solution.
The Croatian station is scheduled to be commissioned and fully operational during fall 2018.
Chart has installed four permanent fueling stations for natural gas vehicles in Finland, the most recent (December 2017) being close to Helsinki Vantaa airport. The public station, owned and operated by indigenous gas sector expert Gasum, is further helping to develop the country’s natural gas vehicle fueling infrastructure alongside its other Chart designed and built counterparts in Helsinki Vuosaari, Turku and Jyväskylä.
Chart was also the installer of Austria’s first LNG refuelling installation, officially opened at Ennshafen in Austria by RAG, a major European gas storage operator, in cooperation with Iveco Austria, last October.
