Mobile CNG Station Designed for Fueling Small to Mid-Size Fleets

A new mobile compressed national gas fueling station provides fueling for new fleets or interim service while an existing fueling facility is undergoing maintenance.
IMW Industries, a subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp., based in Chilliwack, B.C., has introduced the station.
Offering both time-fill and fast-fill fueling capabilities, the natural gas compression/dispensing system is mounted on a 24-foot trailer for quick deployment to fleet locations across the country.
With the growing demand for natural gas fueling by vehicle fleets, the mobile station can be deployed and operating in days rather than months providing the economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas fuel quickly.
Enclosed in a protective trailer shell, the new IMW system can fuel CNG-powered refuse trucks, delivery trucks, service vans or other types of vehicle fleets. It features on-board fueling capability for 10 vehicles simultaneously in time-fill mode or for two vehicles in fast-fill mode. It is designed for use together with a portable generator (or site power) and an onsite utility gas supply connection.
Brad Miller, president and CEO of IMW, said, “This new product offering broadens our capabilities in the expanding market for natural gas compression equipment for fueling transportation in North America and worldwide. The flexibility and utility of this mobile CNG system supports fleet operators looking to provide temporary or emergency coverage for their CNG fueling networks. The mobile CNG fueling package includes proven IMW CNG components in a system that combines ease of mobility with plug-and-play installation simplicity.”
Each package has an industrial CNG compressor, high-pressure CNG storage, multi-point CNG dispensing, gas controls and electrical controls in a unique, purpose-built transport trailer.
