Chart Industries, Inc.’s commitment to ensuring that fueling infrastructure product continues to match market demand is the addition of an LCNG (Liquefied Compressed Natural Gas) fueling option, introduced mid-2016. The skid-mounted LCNG option follows on from Chart’s skid-mounted LNG fueling station launched three years ago, adding the option to refuel both LNG and CNG powered vehicles.
With vehicle fleet and ferry operators taking advantage of the environmental and economic benefits of switching to natural gas in ever increasing numbers, Chart’s latest commitment to ensuring that the fueling infrastructure continues to keep pace is the addition of an LCNG (Liquefied Compressed Natural Gas) fueling option to our skid mounted LNG fueling station, making it suitable for both LNG and CNG fueled vehicles.
Because the station is skid mounted, installation and commissioning are reduced to a few days, civil works are hugely simplified, with resultant massive cost savings, and the complete station can be easily relocated to another location, if required. It’s the perfect fueling solution for vehicle fleet bases, remote locations and small ports, as well as being an excellent temporary fueling solution, either until a permanent station is built, or as a stop-gap until demand dictates a requirement for a larger, permanent station.
As you’d expect from Chart, safety and reliability are paramount and this highly compact system comes fully loaded with the latest technology, including fully automated operation, remote control access and submerged pump for a fast refueling action. The station also incorporates the Flowcom 3000 dispenser, designed and built by Chart’s German based subsidiary Flow Instruments GmbH, for guaranteed highly accurate metering and measuring.
The skid-mounted LNG fueling 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.
