The contract is for the design and construction of a state-of-the-art LNG fuel station in Belgium
Tankterminal N.V. (Begoos Group) has awarded the contract for the design and turnkey supply of a state-of-the-art LNG fuel station for trucks in Lokeren, Belgium to Breda based LIQAL.
Tank cleaning facilities are owned and operated by Tankterminal N.V. where diesel and AdBlue are offered to transport companies. The company decided to invest in an installation to supply LNG at the truck lanes of its Lokeren site, because LNG is considered as the most promising replacement fuel for diesel in heavy duty transportation.
Tankterminal N.V. contracted LIQAL for the design and turnkey supply of the LNG fuel station, after an extensive comparison of station builders which will be equipped with a seventy-three cubic meter (73m3) storage capacity. Four LNG dispensers in total as well as to sell CNG in the future is what the multi-card LNG fuel station’s design is aimed at. ‘Micro Liquefaction’ technology in Liqal’s design ensures unlimited holding time of LNG without the use of liquid nitrogen (N2), and enables Tankterminal to provide end-users with cold as well as saturated LNG and effectively serve all truck brands that are available on the market.
” We selected LIQAL as our partner because of its hands-on experience in the small-scale LNG industry, its intelligent solutions and they proved to be capable in assisting us in all aspects that are involved in development, realization and operation of a state-of-the-art LNG fuel station,” said Olivier Willekens, Business Development Manager at Tankterminal N.V.
Jorg Raven, CEO at LIQAL, said: “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to cooperate with Tankterminal N.V. and, together with other stations that we have in preparation, get a firm foothold in Belgium. Another great proof of the market seeing the benefits of working together with our company and our high-end LNG fueling technology”. PWKD26072017
