Chart Industries said that Chart Feox, its wholly owned subsidiary in the Czech Republic, has been awarded a contract with Shell to provide 3x liquified natural gas (LNG) fueling stations for heavy-duty trucks in the Netherlands.
This contract represents a significant step toward achieving carbon and air quality benefits, as LNG can be a cost competitive option to diesel, reducing fuel costs and also offer compelling environmental benefits – such as reducing GHG emissions by up to 20% , while reducing local emissions such as NOX, SOX and particulate matter emissions.
Shell tendered these stations in 2012 and selected Chart Ferox to design, supply, install and commission the equipment for the stations. Chart Ferox exclusively contracts the installation works with local company Hamer. The fuel stations will be open to the public, first site in Rotterdam during late summer 2014. They will be fully automatic, low working pressure and sized to fill 100 to 150 trucks per day having 2x LNG dispensers.
