Inoxcva Launches India Made LNG Dispenser
India’s Inoxcva, which develops cryogenic technology equipment, on March 4 said it had launched the first-ever India-made LNG dispenser.
"With LNG being introduced as a vehicular fuel as per the central motor vehicle rules, the creation of this LNG dispenser by Inoxcva would play a significant role in promoting the use of the sustainable and environment-friendly LNG for long-distance heavy motor transportation,” it said.
Inoxcva said it has developed an end-to-end integrated solution for Indian markets, with locally certified fuel tanks, fuel stations, and LNG dispensers.
India is planning to set up more than 1,000 LNG fuelling stations across the country over the next few years. “LNG as a transport fuel, would not only reduce the air and noise pollution levels but also have a greater commercial advantage in comparison to the prices of diesel and petrol,” the company said.
The LNG dispenser developed by Inoxcva complies with ISO 16924:2016 norms and is also approved by Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organisation India. The dispenser also bears the ATEX certification, a European certification given to equipment tested and approved to be intrinsically-safe, it said.
Inoxcva said it has supplied these LNG dispensers to Petronet LNG's Dahej and Kochi terminals for trial purposes.
