LNG Application Projects
LNG as an alternative fuel to diesel for road transportation has been in development in Australia since 2001.
Over 200 heavy duty vehicles are now in daily operation.
LNG is a suitable alternative to diesel for the remote power generation market.
These remote power generating plants provide electricity for towns or mine sites and can vary in size from 1 MW to 50MW.
Mining and Industrial
Mining and industrial markets have considerable potential employ LNG into their operations.
Large quantities of diesel are consumed by mining vehicles, making them the perfect application for LNG substitution.
Rail is also a potential LNG application.
LNG to replace diesel for locomotives has increased substantially in the past few years and LNG powered locomotives are already in use in other countries.
Ships with short repetitive routes are also a viable LNG use.
Ferries are a prime example of this application.
