18 April 2013

GE Oil & Gas has introduced a small-scale, plug-and-play, re-deployable liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling system for transportation.

The world’s first commercial application of the LNG In A Box system will be for LNG fueling stations in Europe to be delivered by Luxembourg-based LNG firm, Gasfin through its operating company AIR-LNG.

Gasfin will install five LNG In A Box units serving 'clusters' of LNG fueling stations. The first unit will be installed near the border of Italy and Slovenia, with the potential for an additional 25 units for expansion into Europe and the CIS countries. 

In comparison to GE’s Micro LNG plant announced last year, this new system offers customers a more standardised, modular fueling system covering an LNG production range of 10,000 – 50,000 gallons a day. GE says it is the first available in a 10,000-gallons-a-day capacity that reduces demand-side adoption risk and requires a remarkably low CapEx and OpEx commitment.

Each LNG In A Box unit is fully equipped with a gas pre-treatment system, cold box assembly and boil off gas compressor as well as a GE turboexpander compressor, high-speed reciprocating compressor, electric motor, driver and control system. LNG In A Box units for Gasfin will be manufactured in the United States and will be shipped to Gasfin’s LNG fueling sites in Europe.
