India celebrates the launch of its first LNG driven bus that features Chart’s cryogenic fuel storage tank.
Engineered and fabricated in the US, the 420 litre capacity tank stores 190kg of LNG that has the capability of powering the bus for up to 375 miles.
Mr Pradhan, Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, confirmed the government’s plans for the wider use of LNG, for rail and heavy haulage fuelling, to assist with India’s plans to meet its COP21 commitments.
From Chart’s perspective, the project wouldn’t have been possible without Tata motors, who developed the 50 seater bus, and the extraordinary commitment of Option Engineering and Petronet LNG to execute it in a professional and timely manner.
The LNG bus was launched in Thiruvananthapuram, State capital of Kerala.
‘You may never use the products we make, but everyone uses the products we make possible’, is the slogan that Chart Industries Inc., designer and manufacturer of cryogenic equipment, believes really captures the essence of the company.
Chart Ferox has announced the completion and opening of a public natural gas vehicle fuelling station in Turku, Finland.
