Chart has announced that Shell has opened an LNG truck refuelling station in Waddinxveen, the Netherlands.
Since Chart engineers completed commissioning, the site has averaged 10 vehicles per day dispensing approximately 1500 kg of LNG.
The Waddinxveen station, which is close to Rotterdam, operates 24/7 and incorporates fuelling of conventional fuels and LNG in the same area. It is open to both the general public and Shell’s fleet customers. The LNG section includes all of Chart’s latest technical features for optimum safety, reliability and convenience with zero emissions to atmosphere. It is controlled and maintained through a remote monitoring system and proprietary Saturation on the Fly concept eliminates additional pre-cooling.
The station is equipped to serve trucks and buses with saturated or cold liquid from 0 to 8 bar. The Dynaflow 3000 dispenser facilitates venting and fuelling through one liquid line and can also fuel Volvo trucks fitted with the HPDI Euro VI engine. The dispensers are MID certified and designed for a safe and precise fuelling operation.
The fuelling process is fully intuitive and an experienced driver can fill a vehicle in approximately three minutes.
