INOXCVA develops LNG Dispenser

INOXCVA has announced that it has indigenously designed, developed and manufactured India’s first ever 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 LNG for long distance heavy motor transportation.

The development of the LNG Dispenser is in line with the Government of India’s policy to promote LNG as fuel for heavy motor vehicles in India. INOXCVA has developed an end-to-end integrated solution for Indian markets, with locally certified fuel tanks, fuel stations and LNG dispensers. This endeavour 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 environmentally friendly fuel in different sectors of the economy.

With the government’s plan of setting up more than 1000 LNG fuelling 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.

Deepak Acharya, Chief Executive Officer at INOXCVA said: “With LNG destined to play a major role in the country’s transition into a gas-based economy, we are glad to have developed an innovative and world class solution, which would not only enhance its availability, but would also increase its usage as an alternative fuel. Looking at the massive strides made by the country on the economic front, we are proud to support the transition to a greener, cleaner and environment-friendly fuel.”

The LNG Dispenser complies with ISO 16924:2016 norms and is also approved by PESO India. The Dispenser also bears the important ATEX Certification, a European certification given to equipment tested and approved to be intrinsically-safe. INOXCVA supplied such LNG Dispensers to Petronet LNG-Dahej and Petronet LNG-Kochi terminal for trial purposes. The trials have been successfully completed and the Dispensers have been found to be extremely efficient and highly effective.
