    Linde North America says it has worked with C Cross Transportation to complete trial operations of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) mobile fueling unit - a small-scale platform that allows stakeholders to try LNG as an alternative fuel.

    C Cross Transportation is a Mississippi-based heavy-duty hauler that operates a fleet of more than 100 tractors. The company and Linde set up the mobile unit to support an LNG truck that C Cross is testing in South Carolina. Linde handled the logistics, arranged the installation, deployed the equipment and provided training.

    "We were eager to test whether using LNG is feasible, and we are very pleased with the results," says Harrison Cook, president of C Cross. "Based on experience to date, we expect to expand the test going forward."

    "This test demonstrates the simplicity of our LNG mobile fueling system," adds Douglas Bell, head of energy solutions, operations, at Linde North America. "We are delighted to report this positive experience from the field."

    For its part, Linde is building its own clean fleet by converting existing vehicles to run on LNG and purchasing new LNG-fueled tractors.

          AGTLNG, of Dallas Oregon, put a video up this week of its small scale LNG unit in operation. The restart of this 2015 demonstration unit is the culmination of the acquisition of a plant for production of units suitable for fleets to have at their own yards. Ray Tate, Jr - founder - has utilized a four stage CNG compressor to supply his patented chiller, all operating from a natural gas engine.

          The Sterling LNG daycab seen driving away in the video was purchased in Nov 2016 and driven from Los Angeles using public LNG stations in Whittier CA; Tulare CA; Lathrop CA; and Central Point OR. At the time this video was produced in Nov 2017, its tank could only have had fuel from the demo unit shown in the video. Any prior fuel would have been gone and the truck did not have enough fuel when it arrived in Dallas Oregon to reach the nearest LNG stations in Fife WA or Central Point OR - each of which are 200 miles away.

          Attached photos are of demo unit arriving in Oregon in 2015; chief scientist Hubert, and Stanford-grad marketing partner Tim Tight at 2017 open house. Last photo lists sponsors of the demo unit, called the Liberty Station 2000:

            Joseph Bebon for NGTNews December 1, 2017 - Omnitrans, a public transit agency serving California s San Bernardino Valley, recently celebrated the completion of new state-of-the-art CNG fueling systems at its San Bernardino and Montclair facilities. According to a press release, the systems replaced LNG equipment used by the agency since 2002.

            According to the release, the large LNG storage tanks used in the prior systems generated concern from area residents, and the switch to CNG is projected to save Omnitrans $1.6 million annually in fuel costs compared to LNG. The San Bernardino site includes three CNG compressors, and the Montclair site has two compressors. Combined, these meet the daily 176 bus fleet demand of the CNG equivalent of about 10,000 gallons of gasoline, and each bus takes less than eight minutes to fuel:

              Wow, thanks for the article Bill.
              LNG is really taking a dive in favor of CNG.
