Dover Fueling Solutions, a subsidiary of Dover Corporation, has announced the successful installation of its LIQAL Boil-off Gas Treatment Unit (BTU) system at LC3 Trasporti’s refueling station in Italy. The LIQAL BTU system addresses challenges at the station, including high pressure inside the LNG tank due to boil-off gas (BOG) and inefficient refueling of LNG trucks.
LC3’s Piacenza station is the first in Italy to offer both LNG and Nitrogen, with the ability to provide 100% Bio-LNG. The LIQAL BTU system helps maintain stable tank pressure, allowing truck drivers to refuel their LNG vehicles smoothly and consistently. Michele Ambrogi, President of LC3 Trasporti, stated that the new system mitigates potential direct methane emissions into the atmosphere and improves refueling performance while reducing environmental impact.
The LIQAL BTU system provides an environment-controlled storage solution for LNG, allowing for extended storage times. It is a modular and fully stand-alone unit that removes the need for active management of storage pressure or LIN consumption and logistics while maximizing LNG storage capacity for optimal delivery of LNG fuel. The LIQAL BTU system also prevents BOG from being vented into the atmosphere, protecting the environment.
Joost Jansen, Business Development Manager for LIQAL, expressed satisfaction with the positive feedback on the deployment of the automated and TCO-effective BTU system at LC3’s station. The LIQAL BTU solution re-liquefies BOG at the station, ensuring extended holding time of LNG inside the storage tank and helping significantly improve LNG fuel performance while enabling 100% Bio-LNG delivery to trucks.
