SoCalGas and Onboard Dynamics announce demonstration of mobile natural gas compressor

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and Onboard Dynamics Inc. (ObDI) have announced the field demonstration of new mobile compressor technology intended to provide onsite backup and supplemental compression at natural gas fuelling stations

The new compressor, called the GoFlo® CNG80, is now being demonstrated at the Antelope Valley School Transportation Agency (AVSTA) in Lancaster, California, where 43 natural gas school buses refuel using the fuelling station at AVSTA's fleet yard.

SoCalGas and ObDI are partnering to fund the demonstration project to validate the performance of the new mobile compressor.

The GoFlo compressor uses natural gas instead of electricity to operate, which increases its cost-effectiveness and allows it to provide backup in the event of an existing CNG compressor failure.
