According to recent statement, the new Super B-train trailer is a break though technology designed to have 70% greater capacity than standard trailers operating in Canada today.
The trailer, which is in full compliance with Transport Canada rules and regulations for the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG), is designed to be interoperable across Canada.
What is more, the development of the trailer will provide natural gas solutions to companies and municipalities which are seeking to transition to an environmentally sustainable and competitive fuel source, in line with Cryopeak’s business objective.
Namely, Calum McClure, CEO of Cryopeak commented that
This new transportation solution will improve the competitiveness of LNG as transportation costs represent often the largest cost of LNG supplied to our customers.
In January, Drewry informed that low prices; plenty of supply and a change towards cleaner gas for energy generation will drive strong demand for LNG, not just from large buyers, but also from small importers.
Currently, the number of small LNG export projects is limited, but new facilities are coming up. Ms. Shokeen provides the example of the small-LNG export project in Florida with three trains of 0.33 MTPA capacity, which has already been approved by the FERC.
