Galileo’s Cryobox® LNG nano stations will fuel Buquebus ferry in South America

There will be seven Cryobox® units, developed and patented by Galileo, to feed with LNG the tanks of the “López Mena”, the world´s first high speed passenger RO-RO ship, which will daily cross the Río de la Plata between Argentina and Uruguay. It will also be the first time that a sea transportation company, such as Buquebus, becomes its own self supplier of a fuel.

“The integration of Cryobox® Galileo’s technologies in this challenge will demonstrate that LNG is the most suitable and cleanest power alternative for long-haul trucks; delivery fleets; buses; ships, barges and ferries; and railroad locomotives, when long distances should be covered, even when the odds of refueling are widely scattered. Since LNG has a superior energetic density than any other diesel substitute, it is possible to charge more fuel to cover longer distances in the same tank,” said Osvaldo del Campo, CEO of Galileo.

Cryobox® nano LNG station offers a cost effective solution, characterized by a high-pressure thermodynamic cycle that converts natural gas into liquid by cooling its temperature below -153 °C. Having a customizable LNG production capacity, it can reach a peak of 12 tpd (tons per day) or 7,000 gpd (gallons per day). It is a small-scaled mobile and packaged LNG production plant, which is ready to be shipped anywhere on a trailer for its immediate start-off.

Operating together, the seven Cryobox® nano stations commisioned by Buquebus will be able to produce 84 tpd or 49,000 gpd of LNG and then trucked from the surroundings of Buenos Aires to the Buquebus’ wharf.

Developed in Australia by Incat Tasmania Pty Ltd, the “López Mena” is the first high speed craft built under the British Code of Safety for High-Speed Craft (HSC code) powered by Gas Turbines using LNG as the primary fuel and marine distillate for standby and ancillary use.

    Escape planet Earth and come visit Cazmo for an awesome time.

    Choose an alternative, uncomplicated loop for
    the refrain that will be more attention-getting than the
    others. Hitchcock has hit the streets recently with his new mixtape H20 Chapter 1 Enbalming Fluid and it is dope stuff all right.
