Chart Ferox has opened a Shell liquefied natural gas (LNG) truck refuelling station in The Netherlands.
Since Chart engineers completed commissioning at the beginning of the month, the site in Waddinxveen, close to Rotterdam, has averaged 10 vehicles per day dispensing approximately 1500kg of LNG.
Opened in April, Chart said the Waddinxveen station operates 24/7, incorporates fuelling of conventional fuels and LNG in the same area and is open both to the general public and Shell’s fleet customers.
A spokesperson from the company said, “The LNG section is controlled and maintained through a remote monitoring system and proprietary Saturation on the Fly concept eliminates additional pre-cooling. The station is equipped to serve all types of trucks and buses with saturated or cold liquid from zero to eight bar. The Dynaflow 3000 dispenser facilitates venting and fuelling through one liquid line and can also fuel Volvo trucks fitted with the HPDI Euro VI engine. Like its counterparts installed at all other Chart supplied Shell LNG stations, the Dynaflow 3000 Dispensers are MID certified and designed for a safe and precise fueling operation.”
