Cryopeak develops LNG hauling trailer

Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporation said it has developed the first-ever “Super B-train” liquefied natural gas (LNG) hauling trailer to optimize small-scale transportation in Canada.

The trailer is designed to be interoperable across Canada and is in full compliance with Transport Canada rules and regulations for the transportation of LNG, Richmond, British Columbia-based company said in its statement.

Development of the trailer is in line with Cryopeak’s business objective of providing natural gas solutions to companies and municipalities which are seeking to transition to an environmentally sustainable and competitive fuel source, it says.

The new Super B-train trailer is designed to have 70 percent greater capacity than standard trailers operating in Canada today.

“Our customers are seeking lower costs associated with the transportation of LNG in Canada and we are pleased to have four new Super B-train trailers entering service in the Cryopeak fleet at the beginning of 2020. This new transportation solution will improve the competitiveness of LNG as transportation costs represent often the largest cost of LNG supplied to our customers,” Calum McClure, CEO of Cryopeak said.

Canadian distributor of LNG Cryopeak currently has a fleet of 16 tankers operating in the country, as well as equipment and technologies for storage, regasification, and fuel dispensing.
