October 10, 2019. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) technology innovator LIQAL and station operator Drive Systems announce their plans to build a third stand-alone fueling station together in Belgium. Their continued commitment to expanding the LNG distribution network supports the need for accelerated decarbonization in the transport sector and responds to society’s demand for greener solutions.
The successful partnership between LIQAL and Drive Systems continues with a new project to build a full-service fueling station in Londerzeel, Belgium. The fully automated station will supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquid to compressed natural gas (LCNG), as well as traditional fuel.
Drive Systems will operate the LNG/LCNG station. Maes Energy & Mobility is responsible for building and operating the filling station for the traditional fuels. LIQAL’s focus is on the next station to take a crucial step towards sustainability and decarbonization. LIQAL will design, manufacture and deliver this project, and their integrated approach makes sure the LNG and LCNG stations are always up to date.
With a storage capacity of 80,000 liters, this unmanned fueling station uses patented technology to supply LNG and LCNG. The station contains an LNG dispenser for LNG powered trucks and an LCNG refueling system for CNG vehicles. It also has an advanced online monitoring and trending system, MID-certified LNG fuel dispenser with heated and purged nozzle docking bay, on-the-fly saturation, boil off gas (BOG) management and LIQAL’s station KPI dashboard for clients.
The new to industry site will be built on the van den Broek premises and the site is planned to be operational by April 2020.
