U.S. natural gas vehicle trade association NGVAmerica has released an updated version of Guideline for Determining the Modifications Required for Natural Gas Vehicle Maintenance Facilities, originally created by the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation in 2012. The updated document was produced by the NGV Maintenance Facility Modifications Working Group that is part of NGVAmerica’s Technology & Development Committee.
As stated in the introduction, this document looks at the modifications necessary for existing liquid fuel maintenance facilities to service both CNG and LNG vehicles. The basic national codes are outlined and the rationale and/or assumptions used to develop the codes are discussed.
The guidelines describe the modifications necessary for existing liquid fueled vehicle maintenance facilities to service both CNG and LNG vehicles.
NGVAmerica says it is important to note that an individual existing maintenance facility must be evaluated to determine any necessary modifications since the building design and activities performed in the facility can have a significant impact on the modifications required.
NGVAmerica is an affiliated association of NGV Global.
