Breda-based LIQAL, turnkey supplier of small-scale LNG systems, has developed a skid-mounted LNG refuelling station that offers station operators what the company describes as “best in class performance with the flexibility of a relocatable system at lower investment requirements for both fuelling equipment and onsite project preparations”.
This completely pre-fabricated and transportable LNG refuelling unit, the ‘MRU’, is SIL-2 classified and complies with the latest international standards and regulations, including ISO 16924.
LIQAL says that because the proprietary design integrates ‘intelligent features’ like on-the-fly saturation, a vapour return economizer, MID certified LNG fuel dispenser with patented heated and purged nozzle docking bay and 24/7 iSCADA remote monitoring system, end users do not need to make any concession on fuelling performance compared to a fixed LNG station configuration.
Any tank type including mobile ISO storage can be connected to the MRU, which also holds space for LIQAL’s proven micro liquefaction technology that ensures unlimited holding time of LNG in the storage tank and enables supply of both saturated- and cold LNG to effectively fill all available LNG truck types (including the new Volvo EURO 6).
The MRU offers the opportunity to position the dispenser at a distance from the skid for 2-sided refuelling of LNG and to add a LCNG system.
After turnkey supply and commissioning of the MRU, LIQAL takes responsibility for technical operation and maintenance of the system, if requested by the client.
