LNG Automotive - On the road to sustainability

The use of LNG as a road transport fuel is growing at an incredible rate.

LNG is cost effective, sustainable and moreover, safe.

In Europe, Vanzetti Engineering is among the pioneer companies in this business, with its first supply of pumps for L-CNG stations dating back to 2008 and the first L-CNG turn-key station in Italy built in 2010.

In 2014, Vanzetti Engineering opened for ENI the first complete fueling turn-key station: LNG for trucks and L-CNG for cars.

Thanks to this experience, the company gained a very detailed know-how on the LNG and L-CNG stations entire process and increased its cryogenic pumps and equipment reliability, safety and operational performances.

Since mid of 2014, Vanzetti Engineering dropped the complete turn-key solutions, concentrating its efforts in designing and manufacturing pump skids:

  • High pressure for L-CNG
  • Low pressure for LNG
  • Fully equipped units with all the sensors, valves, instrument for an easy and cost effective installation at site.

Vanzetti Engineering also supplies:

  • Pumps on-board for LNG semi-trailers
  • Pumps and pump skids for LNG transfer
  • High pressure ambient vaporizers
  • More equipment, including LNG dispensers (MID certified)

Automotive applications

Vanzetti Engineering natural gas fuelling station is the best choice to fuel either compressed natural gas (L-CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicles (NGV), including liquid biogas (LBG) vehicles.

Vanzetti engineering offers customized solutions for public stations and private fleets, providing modular design to allow tailored solutions and future expansions possibilities.

The offer includes LNG based fuelling stations:

  • L-CNG solo
  • LNG solo
  • L-CNG / LNG combined systems

L-CNG Fuelling Stations

  • Liquid natural gas (LNG) is stored in a cryogenic tank, which provides the fuel to the high-pressure reciprocating pump.
  • Compressed LNG is pumped through an ambient vaporizer, therefore is warmed and turned into gas becoming compressed natural gas (CNG).
  • To complete the process, the CNG is then stored in a gaseous buffer, becoming available for the dispensing in the vehicle tank whenever necessary.

  • Cold charge group Regulates the compressed natural gas (CNG) temperature providing the highest fuel density and maximising the stored mass consequently.
  • High-pressure ambient vaporizer for vents Increases the system safety reducing the risk of liquid drains and it’s also a useful component for operators in charge of services on site.

  • LNG storage tank (vertical or horizontal)
  • Gaseous buffer to store the CNG at 300 bar and make it available at the CNG dispenser
  • CNG dispenser

LNG Fuelling stations

  • Liquid natural gas (LNG) is stored in a cryogenic tank, which provides the fuel to the cryogenic centrifugal submerged pump.
  • In the fuelling process, the pump carries out two main functions:
    • To provide the fuel to the liquid dispenser
    • To pump the liquid to the LNG saturation (conditioning) heat exchanger
  • LNG stations components address various design and functionality requirements, including:
    • Tank truck off-loading
    • LNG saturation (conditioning)
    • Mass flow rate metering
    • Some dispensing needs such as automatic truck tank cool-down and gas recovering

L-CNG LNG Fuelling Stations

The liquid natural gas is stored in a storage tank providing the fuel to separates pumps:

  • High-pressure pump for the compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensing
  • Submerged pump for the natural gas (LNG) dispensing
