NGV Global Workshop brings stakeholders up to speed
Canadian compressor manufacturer IMW Industries has played host to three days of meetings at the Vancouver Convention Center to progress draft ISO standards for NGV fuelling stations. Members of ISO PC252 convened for two and half days working on the drafts of ISO WD 16923 (CNG) and ISO WD 16924 (LNG) while NGV Global used half a day of the three day program to host a workshop and forum bringing industry members up to speed on the progress of the standards. The workshop also included a preview of an NGV Global Position Paper on CNG Vehicle and Cylinder Verification. Delegates traveled from as far as New Zealand and the Philippines specifically for the workshop while several experts from North America took the opportunity to take an active role in the development of the standards.
The fuelling station standards are being developed as a result of an NGV Global initiative to initiate the standards with ISO in 2008. NGV Global has since played in active role in recruiting stakeholders to participate in the development of the standards. The standards are currently at the Working Draft stage with a Committee Draft expected to be completed within the first half of 2012. The final standards for both CNG and LNG are expected be published in the first half of 2014.
