GE Oil and Gas announced Wednesday it has signed a MOU with China’s Endurance Industry for the Chinese company to purchase 260 of GE’s CNG In A Box systems in the next three years to help increase local natural gas infrastructure in China.

 

 

The CNG In A Box is a small scale, plug-and-play compressed natural gas fuelling solution which GE says is designed specifically to address the problems of China’s transition from gasoline and diesel to more economic and cleaner fuels. The solution, according to GE, reduces CO2 emissions by 24 per cent compared to gasoline and if used in a vehicle can reduce annual fuel costs by up to 40 per cent.

 

 

“China’s vast reserves of natural gas, shallow coal-bed methane and recoverable shale gas allow it to gradually transition from traditional fuel sources to efficient and environmentally friendly natural gas options, enabling the country to lessen its dependence on foreign fuel supplies,” said Lin Chaoyang, chairman, Endurance Industry.

 

 

“Through the implementation of natural gas solutions such as GE’s CNG In A Box technology, Endurance will help to greatly reduce CO2 emissions throughout the country.”

 

 

The CNG fuel station configuration that GE will supply to Endurance will contain a standard-sized CNG In A Box unit with multiple, smaller stations running off of it. This design minimizes the need for pre-existing natural gas pipelines. The capabilities of the larger station enable it to automatically feed into the smaller stations when fuel is running low to reduce wait times.
