ULNG reveals first four LNG big rigs

Universal LNG Solutions rolled out the first four trucks in a fleet of 95 of the LNG big rigs at the campus of Sancus Energy.

The 95 tractor-trailer trucks are the first in the country with the capability to haul 80,000 pounds of goods for more than 700 miles per fill-up, the company informed in a statement.

The fleet will ship goods throughout Texas and the surrounding states during a two-month pilot program.

“These are the Freightliner Cascadian trucks equipped with a new breed of Cummins Westport ISX12G400HP Engine. The added fuel efficiency, range and LNG hold time is created through the integration of a Westport ICEPACK 240 dual tank LNG Fuel System and use of cold LNG during operations,” Jeffrey Liu, CEO of Universal LNG Solutions said.

Utilizing ULNG’s LNG re-conditioning technology and Westport’s fuel system can eliminate venting from the truck’s LNG tank under regular truck usage, achieving a “non-venting” fleet status. Most importantly, this will allow fleet operators to effectively consume the energy purchased without venting back to the station or into the atmosphere, the statement said.

Texas-based LNG technology companies Sancus Energy and its sister company SST Process Solutions are working closely with ULNG, Sembcorp Marine and Gravifloat in the development implantation of a 700,000 m3 to 7,500,000 m3 class Associated Gas treatment and LNG liquefaction unit, the statement added.
