Onsite Liquefaction Unit from Argentina Fills ‘Huge Gap.’

Got access to a pipeline and need LNG for vehicles? Don’t care to invest in a massive industrial installation?

“This is a huge gap in the market,” says Joseph Shinn of Southern California’s Clean Fuel Connection. His firm represents Argentina’s Galileo, promoting Galileo’s Cryobox, a $4.5 million unit that can produce some 9,000 gallons of LNG onsite using pipeline gas.

Cryobox handles inlet pressures of 160 to 725 psi.

A ‘Compact and Transportable Module’

Galileo, one of the grand names in GNV – gas natural vehicular – in Latin America, offers too a wide range of CNG fueling solutions, like Microbox and Nanobox compressor packages, and modular virtual pipeline units for transporting CNG in quantity
by truck.

Cryobox is said to have all the capabilities of a large scale LNG plant in a “compact and transportable module which shares the off-the-shelf components and main features of Galileo’s compressor packages, namely: modularity, low weight, economies in transport and ease of installation.

Clean Fuel Connection also handles equipment for charging electric vehicles.

Buquebus has been honored with the annual Black Diamond Award. This award is given to the top LNG fuel project to advance technology, open new markets, and achieve the smoothest execution considering the degree of difficulty.

The awarding was held during the last edition of the World LNG Fuels conference, which took place on January 21-23, 2013, at the George R. Brown Convention Center, in Houston, TX, USA. The event is the largest and oldest conference to focus on advancing markets for LNG as transportation fuel and its award is given for achieving the highest standards across four criteria: a) technological innovation, b) project execution, c) market impact and d) risk taken.

“We are very pleased with this reognition given to Buquebus, since we are deeply involved with their project by being the developers of the seven Cryobox® Nano LNG-Stations that will supply the LNG for its Francisco high speed Ro-Ro ship,” says Osvaldo del Campo, Galileo´s CEO.

These Galileo’s state-of-the-art liquefiers will supply the 66 tons per day (ton/day) of LNG required by for the Francisco´s two daily frequencies between Montevideo, Uruguay, and Buenos Aires, Argentina, which involves the transport of up to 1,000 passengers and 150 cars at cruising speeds around 50 knots.

Meet Galileo at the World LNG Fuels 2014 conference! Our CEO, Osvaldo delCampo will speaking during the Breakout Sessions. He will be discussing the paradigm shift in small-scale LNG production and the technology behind this shift.

ABOUT WORLD LNG FUELS 2014

For the first time in a half century, energy suppliers in China, the United States, Canada, Northern Europe, Australia, Africa and parts of Latin America are contemplating displacing their imported crude oil with domestically produced natural gas. 

In this fourth year, the World LNG Fuels Conference creates an environment conducive to business development, market awareness, and cultivation of new relationships. The event attracts key decision-makers, buyers and influencers representing across the LNG fuel spectrum.

CONSIDER THESE FACTS:

  • Gas-bearing shale deposits have now been discovered in more than 47 countries, most of which are dependent on oil imports.
  • Each is initiating efforts to switch transportation, especially heavy-duty trucks, ships and locomotives, to natural gas. These are best suited for LNG.
  • More than a quarter of world energy production, nearly 90 million barrels of petroleum, is consumed every day by transportation.
  • That’s 15 times the energy represented by world LNG trade.
  • In the U.S., heavy duty trucks alone consume some 94 million gallons of diesel daily (110 million metric tons per year).
  • That’s enough diesel to fill Houston’s Reliant Stadium 51 times.
  • Commercial marine vessels consume another 22.1 million gallons per day. U.S. locomotives consume 11.4 million gallons and drilling rigs, 2.1 million gallons per day.
  • If the U.S. were to convert these markets to LNG, it would represent a market about half of world LNG trade.
  • The U.S. represents only 19% of the world petroleum market.
  • If all heavy duty transportation – trucks, commercial vessels, locomotives and drilling rigs – were to convert to LNG, some 600 million tonnes would be needed globally every year.
  • Carbon emissions would fall by almost 0.7 billion tonnes annually.
  • Diesel smoke and diesel sulfur emissions, which contribute to acid rain, would disappear.
