Mobile, Self-Contained CNG Fueling Service
December 2011, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
IMW Industries, a subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels, introduced a self-contained, mobile compressed natural gas fueling station designed for small to mid-size vehicle fleets that need CNG while a permanent station is under construction or undergoing maintenance.
Offering both time-fill and fast-fill fueling capabilities, the natural gas compression/dispensing system is mounted on a 24-foot trailer for quick deployment to fleet locations. The mobile station can be deployed and operating in days rather than months.
Enclosed in a protective trailer shell, the new IMW system can fuel CNG-powered refuse trucks, delivery trucks, service vans or other types of vehicle fleets. It features on-board fueling capability for 10 vehicles simultaneously in time-fill mode or for two vehicles in fast-fill mode. It is designed for use together with a portable generator (or site power) and an onsite utility gas supply connection.
"The flexibility and utility of this mobile CNG system supports fleet operators looking to provide temporary or emergency coverage for their CNG fueling networks," Brad Miller, President and CEO of IMW. "The mobile CNG fueling package includes proven IMW CNG components in a system that combines ease of mobility with plug-and-play installation simplicity."
Each package has an industrial CNG compressor, high-pressure CNG storage, multi-point CNG dispensing, gas controls and electrical controls in a unique, purpose-built transport trailer.
