Indian multinational and one of the largest manufacturers of cryogenic technology equipment and solutions, INOXCVA, has announced that it has designed, developed and manufactured India’s first ever LNG dispenser, the GoLNG. The development of the LNG dispenser is in line with the national government’s encouraging and progressive policy to promote LNG as fuel for long distance, heavy trucking and passenger transportation heavy in India.
Moreover, INOXCVA has developed an end-to-end integrated solution for Indian markets, with locally certified fuel tanks, filling stations and LNG dispensers.
With the government’s plan of setting up more than 1,000 LNG stations across the country, LNG as a transport fuel would not only reduce the air and noise pollution levels, but also have a greater commercial advantage in comparison to the prices of diesel & petrol. To enhance the availability, INOXCVA has developed on board LNG fuel tanks for heavy duty buses and trucks. The initiative would also significantly bring down the vehicle maintenance cost as compared to diesel vehicles.
“With LNG destined to play a major role in the country’s transition into a gas-based economy, we are glad to have developed an innovative & world class solution, which would not only enhance its availability, but would also increase its usage as an alternative fuel. Looking at the massive strides made by the country on the economic front, we are proud to support the transition to a greener, cleaner and environment-friendly fuel. We are proud that our dispensers would lend more sustainability to the Make In India and Aatma Nirbhar Bharat missions,” said Deepak Acharya, CEO of INOXCVA.
The GoLNG dispenser developed by INOXCVA complies with ISO 16924:2016 norms and is also approved by PESO (Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organization) India. It also bears the important ATEX Certification, a European certification given to equipment tested and approved to be intrinsically-safe.
INOXCVA already supplied these new dispensers to Petronet LNG-Dahej and Petronet LNG-Kochi terminal for trial purposes. The trials have been successfully completed and dispensers have been found to be extremely efficient and highly effective.
INOXCVA has also developed equipment for a mobile LNG fueling station to cater the requirements for mining industry and remote areas.
