Chart has announced that its OrcaTM technology has been deployed in a pilot project by Teck Resources Limited (Teck) for the use of LNG as a fuel alternative to diesel in high horsepower engines.
The project will see Teck convert six of its haul trucks at its Fording River operation in British Columbia, Canada. The company believes LNG has the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while reducing fuel costs.
The vehicles are fuelled by a Chart designed and built mobile unit based on the Orca™ platform, which has long been the preferred solution for liquid gas delivery across a wide range of applications, including atmospheric gases for industry, drinks dispense gases at restaurants and, increasingly, LNG fuelling.
The Orca™ for Teck was delivered in October 2015 and Chart’s scope also included on-site commissioning and training, which it described as having gone ‘very smoothly’.
Cryogas M&T Poland announced that their latest fuelling station for natural gas vehicles, featuring Chart’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology, is fully operational.
