November 13, 2019. Chart Industries completed the installation and commissioning of Europe’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station for AlternOil.

AlternOil will operate the fueling station, which is located on Germany’s main A1 highway near the city of Bakum, following final approval by local authorities expected in early December 2019.

Chart said it has deployed its proprietary “Saturation on the Fly” (SoF) technology which eliminates methane emissions to the atmosphere and recognizes both spark ignited and compression engines which allows the station to fuel all LNG trucks regardless of original equipment manufacturer or brand.

SoF also provides a total refueling time consistent with equivalent diesel engine vehicles.

“We continue to contribute to the development of the global LNG infrastructure ranging from liquefaction to marine to transportation,” stated Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO.

AlternOil is planning further LNG filling stations in their intended German network, including in Fulda, Cologne, Hamburg, Bremen and Remscheid.
