This is Chart’s first skid mounted LNG station and features a 30 m3 horizontal LNG storage tank, submerged transfer pump and LNG dispenser all mounted within a single frame. A separate 10’ container includes a remote panel, providing both Programmable Logic Controller Systems and pneumatic logic control of the station which features vent-free filling.
“Chart built the LNG system solution of optimized fuel stations and on-board fuel systems that has proven to be simple and reliable and minimizes the risk of methane loses. Low cost implementation benefits fuel station owners, vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators,” stated Hans Lonsain, President of Chart D&S Europe.
The station is the latest development in Gasrec’s program to establish a national network of Bio-LNG/LCNG truck refueling stations, as cleaner alternatives to conventional diesel fuel, throughout the United Kingdom, and is located in Bridgwater, Somerset. It is also Gasrec’s second open-access UK Bio-LNG filling station and the first in the South West.
“We were pleased to have the support of a number of existing customers as we opened this station,” said Ben Sawford, Gasrec’s chief commercial officer. “As news of the facility grows I am confident many other businesses will see the benefit its location brings in extending the reach of gas powered HGVs in the region and through into Devon and Cornwall”.
