In addition to a reduced carbon footprint, it is estimated that the application is displacing more than 50% of its diesel fuel requirement, resulting in a significant reduction in fuel costs.
The company says that the new TITAN™ order demonstrates how large-capacity, lightweight gas transportation makes economic sense. As industries move toward natural gas, access to pipelines is critical. The TITAN™ line is ideal for businesses that require a large consumption of CNG at a high flow rate, but are not currently served by pipelines. Large-capacity, lightweight gas transportation bridges this distance efficiently and cost effectively.
"Today you see CNG transportation by road trailer replacing conventional fuels," said Frank Häberli, Vice President Gas Distribution Products. "Our composite cylinders hold four times more and weigh 75% less than steel tubes. Businesses spend less money to haul more gas. They also see a faster return on their investment."
Delivery of the TITAN™ modules is scheduled for third quarter, 2014.
