March 5, 2021. Indian multinational and one of the world’s leading manufacturer of cryogenic technology equipment and solutions, INOXCVA, has indigenously designed, developed and manufactured India’s first ever liquefied natural gas (LNG) dispenser. With LNG being introduced as a vehicular fuel as per the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, the creation of this LNG dispenser by INOXCVA would play a significant role in promoting the use of this sustainable and environment-friendly option for long distance heavy motor transportation.
The development of the LNG dispenser is in line with the Government of India’s encouraging and progressive policy to promote liquefied natural gas as fuel for heavy motor vehicles in India. With LNG poised to become an alternate to diesel for long distance trucking and passenger transportation, INOXCVA has developed an end-to-end integrated solution for Indian markets, with locally certified fuel tanks, fuel stations and LNG dispensers. This endeavor strongly supports Government of India’s vision of increasing the use of natural gas in the country’s energy mix by enabling the use of safe and environment friendly fuel in different sectors of the economy.
With Government’s plan of setting up more than 1,000 LNG fueling stations across the country, LNG as a transport fuel, would not only reduce the air and noise pollution levels, but also have a greater commercial advantage in comparison to the prices of diesel and petrol. To enhance the availability, INOXCVA has developed on board LNG fuel tanks for heavy duty buses and trucks. Being a liquid fuel like diesel at low pressure and having higher density per volume, LNG as a fuel allows large commercial vehicles to cover more distance between two fillings as compared to CNG and cuts down the fueling time. The initiative would also significantly bring down the vehicle maintenance cost as compared to diesel vehicles.
