Linde Reveals Compact LNG Fueling Stations

June 26, 2012 by ShowTimes in ACT Expo 2012 with 0 Comments

Linde North America is “pre-announcing” new technology, slated for availability in early 2013, for compact liquefied natural gas fueling stations with better control of LNG boil-off.

“ACT Expo provides the ideal opportunity” for Linde (Booth 129) to promote its expertise, says Bryan Luftglass, head of strategic marketing and business development for Linde Energy Solutions.
Linde is making an exception in discussing the new product early.

“We recognize the market needs solutions that can address boil-off challenges as well as streamline the installation and operation of stations,” says Luftglass, citing a 100-year Linde legacy in industrial gases. “We are fully leveraging this capability in the area of LNG,” he told Fleets & Fuels. “We’re currently deploying the system in other geographies and are excited to bring it to North America in the coming months.

“Linde’s decision to make this announcement now is a reflection of our view about its importance and our excitement about its potential to be a game-changer.

“Normally, we’d wait until a technology is 100% ready, but we recognize that fleets can take a long time to evaluate and decide on significant shifts in fueling,” Luftglass says. “We want to get 
in­formation out there now to help prospective natural gas fuel customers make those decisions.”

Linde’s new compact permanent LNG fueling station design “minimizes installation time and cost, [and] scales as fleets’ needs expand,” the company says.

Linde builds, owns and operates natural gas liquefiers “at any scale,” using natural gas from pipelines, landfill and stranded gas sources as feeds. The company owns and operates more than 1,000 cryogenic plants worldwide. In conjunction with its Cryostar subsidiary, Linde designs, builds and operates LNG and LCNG mobile and permanent fueling stations.

Just last week, Linde announced a joint marketing agreement with American Power Group (Booth 221) for LNG for oil and gas exploration and production.

The firms “will work together to offer customers a comprehensive solution for the safe, economic and efficient use of LNG in retrofitted dual-fuel diesel engines,” Linde said
In January, Linde announced plans for 
20 new LNG trucks in California, and it has placed an order for LNG-fueled Kenworth T440s with Inland Kenworth. Kenworth is at Booth 144.
