On November 26th, the LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) refueling station of the Jiangyin Bridge Service Area officially opened, becoming the first service area in Jiangsu Province to open a LNG refueling station. The Jiangyin Yangtze River Bridge is a suspension bridge over the Yangtze River. 

The project relies on the gas station reconstruction and expansion project, and interfaces with the LNG filling station to expand and upgrade the service functions based on the original fueling business, further consolidating the public service function and promoting the “green+” transportation development.

The total investment of the project is more than 9 million yuan (USD 1.3m). The total area of ​​the refueling and gas station is 2,800 square meters. There are two LNG filling dispensers at the station, and the fire-fighting equipment and other safety facilities are equipped as standard. The daily air volume can reach 20,000 cubic meters. It can meet the refueling requirements of 100 heavy trucks.

LNG is condensed into a liquid by cooling it to -160 ° C in a gaseous natural gas under normal pressure. Natural gas liquefaction can greatly save storage and transportation space, LNG with the same capacity is faster than CNG (compressed natural gas), and has the characteristics of large heat value and high performance.
