As a system, it involves three stages before completing the distribution to its final users through a direct connection or a local distribution network. These three stages are: CNG compression, transport and pressure regulation. In addition, the whole operation is remotely monitored in real time through Galileo’s SCADA System for its proper management.
Working with modules allows the system to increase its capacity at the pace of demand, which makes Virtual Pipeline® the most suitable solution for one of the fastest growing regions in Malaysia. Specially when there is a powerful driver to do it in compliance with environmental protection, since Kota Kinabalu is a popular gateway for travelers visiting rainforest areas in Sabah and Borneo.
“Distributing natural gas via the Virtual Pipeline® System is in line with the aspiration of the State to make this resource available to a wider spectrum of users. Being comparatively much greener and yet competitively priced fuel, natural gas will undoubtedly further spur the growth of industries in the State,” said Yb Datuk Dr. Yee Moh Chai, Deputy Chief Minister Cum Minister of Resource Development and IT of Sabah.
“Apart from savings in fuel costs, industrial users will also achieve other savings due to lower costs in maintenance, handling and storage, manpower, pollution control, etc.,” added Dato Harun HJ Ismail, CEO of Sabah Energy Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (SEC).
