LNG by Rail Opportunities for Chart

LNG by Rail Creates Opportunities for Chart Industries (Gas World)
Nick Parkinson (June 25): Chart Industries makes cryogenic railcars at its New Prague, Minnesota plant that can each haul 30,000 gallons of LNG, and CEO Jill Evanko says the company will expand its railcar business as a result of the recent PHMSA rule change: “Not only will the LNG by rail order expand direct railcar business for Chart, it will further support our small-scale LNG efforts.” Evanko said that Chart had a $21m order for a customer in Mexico for LNG by rail which was booked December 31, 2019, this order has been described by our customer as ‘Phase I’. Phases II and III could involve a total of 300 locomotives and 150 tenders. The product is Chart’s 12K LNG Fuel Tender which stores ~11,200 gallons of LNG on board the tender, and delivers gaseous natural gas (GNG) to one or two locomotives on demand at various flow rates. Link to Content
