  1. 1. The Blue Corridors project and the LNG fuel station technology Massimo Prastaro Workshop - "L'impiego del GNL nei trasporti stradali.“ www.eni.it Roma, 21 gennaio 2014
  2. 2. The Blue Corridors project MISSION LNG Blue Corridors aims to improve knowledge and awareness of LNG as an alternative fuel for medium and long distance road transport PLAN The core of the project is the roll out and demonstration of four LNG Blue Corridors. This includes building 14 new LNG / L-CNG stations (2 eni in Italy) and building up a fleet of about 100 LNG Heavy Duty Vehicles which will operate along the corridors The project will run for 4 years and will connect over 12 Member States and align itself with existing demonstrations running at national level. 2

  5. 5. LNG fuel stations in Europe  Spain is undoubtedly the pioneer and leader in Europe of LNG as fuel (18 stations)  UK and Netherland have also a high LNG development (9 and 8 stations) LNG & LCNG station Future LNG & LCNG station LNG station LCNG station  Sweden has 5 stations and Portugal has 1 and is planning to built 2 more  Italy has only L-CNG stations  No operating LNG stations in Belgium, France, Germany, Slovenia and Croatia. 5
  6. 6. Main obstacles in the way  EURO V / EURO VI change  No trucks were in the market to be offered to fleet operators at Euro VI level  Trucks will become available by middle 2014 (only LNG) – 2015 (dual fuel)  All stations can’t be usable by all trucks  There is a various range of operating pressures depending on the trucks using the station. The most common pressure is 8 bar Truck Refueling pressure IVECO 8 bar Mercedes 16 bar Volvo 3 bar  The nozzle KODIAK PARKER can be used only with its own nozzle 6
  7. 7. End-user experiences  End-user complain about the few number of refueling stations and truck models  LNG vs. Diesel trucks Dual Fuel trucks LNG dedicated trucks Noise slightly less noisy than diesel very quite with almost no vibration Acceleration similar or less important than diesel the feeling of acceleration was more important mainly due to the fact that it was recommended to run the truck at high engine speed. Driving comfort softer than diesel Drivers appreciated the lack of noise and vibration. softer than diesel Engine brake slightly less efficient than diesel much less efficient than diesel Gear box similar to the use of diesel gear box. very well accepted. 7
  8. 8. Typical LNG/CLNG refueling station  Designing a “typical station” is quite difficult as the dimensions of the tank or the need for a pump depends on the customer’s vehicles  The latest station has the following configuration:     One 60m3 LNG tank One cryogenic pump One dispenser delivering 2 different pressures ( 8 or 16 bar) L-CNG infrastructure Fordongas LNG Station in Göteborg LNG24 LNG Station in Zwolle GoldEnergy LNG Station in Mirandela 8
  9. 9. Eni LNG/CLNG station in Piacenza 9
