The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ENN Group, one of China’s largest non-government-controlled energy businesses, for analysis and guidance toward implementation of NGC’s compressed natural gas (CNG) conversion plan.
ENN Energy (formerly known as Xinao Gas) is recognised as a clean-energy expert and was one of the first privately-owned clean energy distributors in the PRC.
The MoU, signed by NGC Chairman Roopchan Chadeesingh and ENN Group President Cheung Yipsang, ENN Group in Beijing, aims to maximise the conversion of the country’s gasoline-using vehicles to CNG, reports Newsday. NGC announced mid-2013 its plans to invest TTD 500 million (USD 78m) in developing phase one of a two-phased five year Compressed Natural Gas plan for all vehicles in Trinidad and Tobago.
In phase one, 22 new CNG stations would be constructed and 17,500 vehicles converted from diesel to CNG, with initial emphasis on conversion of public transportation and large commercial fleets.
